Tignes Mid October

Gareth testing out some World Cup slalom skis – off piste – where skis are meant to be used! Still has the arms flailing around too much and weight just a bit too far back – but good basic mechanics. Great snow for this time of year.
Aprés Ski like it is meant to be…. zero degrees water! The exhilaration after leaving the water is powerful – due to adrenaline. The stress/shock of the water adapts and fortifies many aspects of the body – from the hypothalamus to the vagus nerve.
Sea of clouds in the valley – bright sunshine up high…

Gareth trying to avoid hydrocution…

Just surviving….
