Although most of the kit was to be provided (only boots for the 3yo weren't available), we got kitted out best we could anyway! I stole my husbands Helly Hansen jacket, which I realised made me look more professional than my ability would prove, but willing to try and blag it! Not seen the video yet but if my screaming is included will have to admit that said blagging was a failure ;)
And I now have the video, and it is as suspected haha :)
|Of course my scarf, well there would be snow ;)|
|Don't tell his father about the hat!!!!!|
When I looked out at the Cresta run it suddenly dawned on me what I was about to do. I was going to put myself into a giant rubber ring and be pushed down a snowy slippery slope. Not only that, I was going to subject my children to the same!!!!
I don't have many more pics as I was concerned for my iphone, so gave it to Sonny, one of the Slope Patrol, on top of the slope to look after. The other slope patrollers were Lucy and Vicky. It was a very professional operation as they ensured only one person on the slope at a time, despite my son just diving in as and when he wanted to from half way! My daughter just stood and watched for a bit, but about half way in, I noticed that the girls were actually guiding Scarlett to smaller little zippers, and letting her have a go further down the bottom of the slope. Scarlett got particularly attached to Vicky, and by the end of it was in the proper rubber ring and being guided down from the top. The patience shown to my children was just so wonderful, which meant it was a really special and thrilling afternoon out for all!
|No Papps - where'd she get that from?|
I needn't have worried about being cold by the way, it was very warm under all the layers, and what with going up and down the slope, hair was soaking with sweat afterwards, nice :)
|Post Cresta Run, sweaty head, nice :)|
Check out their website, its a fabulous way to spend an afternoon, and tire out the children too, win win in my book :)
It was brilliant, thanks so much to Fabiola, Ali, Chris, Elise and everyone else involved, trust me, we'll be back!
