I caught a taxi at just before 5am and went to Pann Peninsula to meet Johan we then went back over tower hill and down to Gatwick. We got checked in at good time and went to the bar for a Coors light. The flight was nice and short as I slept through a lot of it. The bus journey was a double decker. And I sat up the front with Charlotte and ate her flapjack and played tunes. When we got to the hotel I tried to go for a ski practice but there were no free drag lifts. I then came back and went for a little run and bought some skiwater. After dinner sandy carried Ross out of the hotel and we went to the Piccadilly bar. It was very busy with fancy dress folks and Ian and Steve came out as well so it was like a stag night reunion.
Up early and we got the group together, Josh,, Rae, Marie and debs. We went on the St Anton side of the mountain I was a bit cold and conditions weren’t great but it went pretty well. We stopped for lunch at the Moosewirt but we lost debs who went past. We managed to meet her again after lunch and we did some more run totalling about 16 miles in total. We also went to aprs ski at the Moosewirt but it was rammed Just had one beer then skied down.Came back I. And found mark Sutton had damaged his shoulder on his board and his holiday was over. I did a quick 4 mile run along the ski tracks route.We had a nice dinner and there was a quiz but sand y and me went out to the Cuba bar and had a drink. myself and sandy and Juzar and Marie and Abby went next door to Scott”s then the boys went out and we finally went in the American bar which was pretty good and had a band.
We went over to the other side of the mount and we were with Charlotte and another Rachel. Debs did ‘t like the first run so she practice and we caught her up but after the first 100 Ms of the run with us she fell over and broke her ankle I ran up a red slope to get help and she was stretched off we lost Rae at this point to. We did some more runs and got up to a high speed of 37.7 mph coming I to St Anton then stopped for some lunch the bottom of the galzig lift. We went back up but the snow was too bad and we just had a hot chocolate and came down I. The gondola. I went for a 4 mile run with sandy then cut out Ross masks. Hen played table football with Josh who was very good. In the evening g we went to the American bar underneath Antoine's there was a band and a lot of dancing and some champagne at midnight for Ross’s birthday.
I missed breakfast but was in time to head out with the others Marie Hannah Charlotte and Josh and kika. We headed over to stolenkopf it was a good choice some of the routes were lovely and a lot less busy than St Anton the only problem was that the lift up to the top was absolutely freezing me and Charlotte were making quite a lot of noise about it. We stopped at a bus stop and thought about catching a bus to another area but we had just missed it so we stopped for a coffee then SKIED back. We skied down to the hotel and I picked up my Ross mask then got a bus and taxi with Iain to the krazy kangaroo. There were loads of people there and a lot of dancing on tables. Stage tried but failed to break the tables. Then myself and the girls decided to slide down the mountain. I couldn’t slide so fast so I ran but then hit some ice. I went splat on my back and that hurt a lot. I could carry on down though. I wore my mask to dinner and sandy nominated me for the costume which I won. And wore to the mirror bar. Ross was in his pink suit and we took up a lot of the place forming a dancing ring. We eventually left there and I headed home at that point about 1 am.
We took the coach at 9am to lech and we headed around the pistes there. Marie was not with our group and neither was Josh. I did the map reading and after the Initial confusion went we went up a different lift I led the group around. We found a restaurant for lunch which had a big heart outside it on the main piste. We had stopped at the ice bar but they didn’t really do the food. In the afternoon we gradually lost people as they got tires and eventually just me and Hannah went across to the other side of the mountain via a double cable car system and we got a red in. Before getting the very slushy and mogully run back to the car park. We were 10 mins early so had timed it well. On the way back we picked up kyrstie who had done her knee in. I tried to go to base camp in my St Patrick's day T-shirt but got spat out it was so busy. Went out with sandy and Marie and charlotte and we found a bar with live music and had a drink before dinner. After dinner we stayed in Scotties the bar next door . Mitch's full leprechaun outfit was the most impressive. I managed to get a Guinness in before midnight.
Fancy dress day we got up early and I got dressed in the swat kit and we were out the door for 9am for the photoshoot the cops chased the robbers and the robbers raided the cash point we then went up and all did a few easy blues together. I then split off with Marie, Josh, Hannah and Charlotte and we did a nice red a couple of times then had a coffee. We carried on and met everyone at a big restaurant and I had some lunch with others. We did a bit more but then quickly hit the bar just above the krazy kangaroo they had a band and we danced a lot to billy idol and ACDC and other rock numbers. I made it down as the band announced there was just ten minutes left. I got down ok and got changed into full swat gear. I had a few heinekens before dinner as they fitted in my vest. I had a very nice diner and then got a jager bomb from Ross as team swat won an award Jon also got one for his gangster outfit with the big shoulders. After dinner we went to Piccadilly and settled in at the stage and danced most of the night to this guy who was onstage who was pretty good I even got to get on stage and work the crowd at one point. When he left we tried to get in the mirror bar but gave it up and crashed.
Up a bit late I didn't feel too bad. Just went up the rendl side on my own. I found a nice route r11 which was very fast and did that a number of times then I came down the R1 when it was quiet at lunchtime and still in good condition so I enjoyed it. Back was still a bit stiff but it didn’t bother me while skiing. After I came down I had a little run with a bit of pain and did a little kit shopping.In the evening I went to Bar 37 I followed Rae and Sandy and Johan and Leo, eventually I got a seat in the very small bar and we had a good chat with the barman. I also got the last guinness for free, we stayed till about 1am.
Up early but it was not too bad and I had some breakfast and a kip on the back seat of the coach. The flight back was very quick 1hr 20mins to Gatwick. Johan ordered a cab and we went back with Nirada who we dropped off in Greenwich.
