Recently we went on a holiday skiing in Morzine, France. This is my 3rd ski holiday. We went with a few friends who we met at London Gatwick.
To get to morzine we flew to Geneva with easyjet and then we drove to the resort. When we arrived at the chalet I was shocked how neat everywhere was. There was even a playroom that had an xbox 360! I was a little upset that we couldn’t go skiing straight away.
I didn’t sleep too well the first night as I was too excited.. Mum was a little cross! Breakfast was the best I’d had for a long time, we had bacon, eggs and toast. There were also croissants, pain au chocolate, cereal and yoghurts. We had this everyday!
After breakfast we got our ski gear and boots on. When we were ready we decided to go with one other family that had as much experience as us. We walked a short distance to pleney cable car. I was extremely excited when I saw all that snow, even though I saw some ice at the chalet.
When I put my skies on it felt weird for 2 minutes, then we started. First we skied down to a chairlift, we went up to the top of a blue run. We decided to go down piste B which was a very long and tricky run in morzine.
Watching the world go by and learning to use our poles.
After, we went straight to our lesson and met our ESF ski instructor, his name was Adrianne.
During the week we had to practice parallel turns and then because we got so good he took us to nyon mountain where we did red and blue runs. We also did a few button lifts. At the end of the ski week we all got our 1st star badge from ESF.
Most afternoons we went out with our mums and dads. On one of those days I went on a black run with my dad . It wasn’t scary at all and I felt ecstatic and really pleased with myself after it!
Finishing the red and black run with my dad!
When we got to avoriaz, the city, I was amazed by the scenery (because people skied through the streets and theirs no cars/roads). The horses were cars and the roads were snow!
Lunch in Avoriaz
After lunch we visited the igloo
We made a slide and played while some of the adults went on more runs. This was a very long but fun day, you should definitely try it if you go to morzine!
When the ski holiday ended, everyone was upset. We said goodbye and went back home
