Fun in the snow!

I have been skiing 4 of the past 5 days and also plan on going for the full day, tomorrow.  I have had so much fun every time, going further each day!  Tomorrow we will bring some hot dogs to make in a fire in the little huts along the track.  I even bought some new Swix ski pants, which will be perfect and not make me to warm.  I also bought a headband to wear while skiing because tuques have been making me to warm.  Now that I have invested $$ into this sport, I have to stay dedicated!  I will take advantage of the snow while it is here, the only thing is that I can rent skiis for 7 days and then have to wait 3 days before I can rent them again so that they are available for other students, so Ill have to find something else to do during those days.
This morning, I went to the tourist info center and learned that there are several cabins that we can rent along the trails to stay in over night.  They each have cozy fireplaces so it is definitely in my plans to spend some time there on weekends!

Tomorrow (Saturday) will be my first shift working in the student pub as a bartender.  Sunday, I will head out to the local ski hill for some snowboarding, I think Ill be teaching some girls from Ghana to ride.  I love all this fun in the snow!


  1. Those ski huts and cabins seem so perfect. I'm impressed with your commitment to the grand sport of skiing. And I looked at the Harstad weather (which I'd guess you do all the time..) and it looks like snow will keep coming.

    Good luck at the bar! :)

  2. Let us know how was your first night working at the pub.
