I follow you deep sea baby

The lyrics in the title is one of the pieces from the DJ set that we got on the Snow DJ Week in Les Deux Alpes in France. CD was on all the time when we were in our apartment. Yes it got boring after some time but it was still on. It's on now as well. I'm trying to make myself better despite the fact that I'm sick in bed, in a hotel in Helsinki, taking antibiotics and really concerned about all my responsibilities and plans...

But coming back to that week in French Alps. There is not much to write except that we were skiing every day almost from the opening till the closure of the lifts (i.e. from 9 till 16), we've had every kind of weather: fog as thick as milk (causing collapsed even where you were standing still), sun, snow, wind and we were partying on the apres ski in the Pano Bar and in the evenings in Le Brasilien and The Smithy's Tavern.

Solitude of the off-piste skier

In the "tube"

At the glacier

I was focused on the whipped cream on my hot chocolate, just like a kid ;-)

Apres ski in Pano Bar. We had exactly two days of such snow. It's also worth to mention that it was second half of April.

Raclette and fondue at Crepes a GoGo

Heavy and unhealthy, but soooo good

Bamboo bike

Off-piste day. We've rented proper skis and did some training in the fresh snow

It looks so easy when you observe people skiing in the powder, but once you start it on your own it becomes difficult. Here during the break in the middle of the slope.

One of the last rides on Friday

I won 3rd place in the Slalom, but frankly speaking it was very badly and amateurally organised event.

On the way back.
And now a riddle: my Sigg bottle has volume of 1 liter, what's the weight of Nutella jars?
