Here are a few photos from my holiday. More can be found on my Instagram – joannechristina
It really was a week of beautiful and unforgettable sights. I have never been in snow that comes up to thighs or crunches when you step on it. After three days of lessons – falling on my bum and being thrown face down a mountain, several times. I picked up snowboarding.
The adrenalin rush of speeding down a mountain, knowing on one edge is a 1800+ ft drop is just crazy. And I’m not going to pretend, it did make me slow down a little.
On the last day we snowboarded from Chatel to Avoriaz. One foot placed in France and the other in Switzerland. When the sun is shining, nothing in the moment can beat that feeling. Your standing on top of a mountain with clouds flouting below you. I even stepped inside a real igloooo – and yes they really are warm inside.
