Pfff, what a nightâ€¦ Iâ€™ve slept very well, although my two neighbors (Erwin and Astrid) were snoringâ€¦ And my bed was in the middle!! But I guess when youâ€™re tired and the first at sleep it doesnâ€™t matter.
Okay, time to open the curtains and greet the sunâ€¦ Uhmâ€¦ what? Snow?? In May??? What theâ€¦! :D I did a quick thank to the Lord and waked up Astrid and Erwin because there was no time to waste! We had a good breakfast and got as quick as we could the slopes. Eline joined us at this real first day. Oh men, the new snow (about 40 cm) was perfect! And the whole Ski area was opened! So we took the gondola and got upstairs. Arrived at the â€˜Point Du Caranâ€™, there was no sight because of the cloudsâ€¦ I guess Johan Cruyff was rightâ€¦ â€˜Every sheer of luck has its loss and otherwiseâ€™. The snow was perfect, but the possibility to ski was not so perfect.
At 15:00 we were tired of the difficult conditions and went to the 360 Bar and had a beerâ€¦ or twoâ€¦
In the evening we explored the nightlife of ValTho. The Malaysia Bar and the Veronica Bar were our favorites. They played (of course) Dutch songs which even non-Dutch could sing along with (lalalalala).
The nice thing of the Dutch Snow Week is that you can order in your mother tongueâ€¦ because I can order in Frenchâ€¦ but after a few hours not anymoreâ€¦ so itâ€™s nice you just can say â€˜4 bier aub!â€™
