A new life at 67.Can a woman start all over again?

Yesterday a 12 year old boy was killed while skiing with his parents outside a marked ski run!

It happened in the well known Parsenn area,near Klosters in Switzerland.

How sad for the loss of a young life, how sad that people who don’t understand the mountains can’t take the advice of people who do.

If you want to Ski in Switzerland we have lots of places to do it in.We have probably the best prepared runs in Europe ( a money thing)

We have Nursery Slopes,Blue Runs,Red Runs and Black Runs. If you really want to kill yourself then believe me the black ones are best for the novice skier. They are planned by experts and mountaineers, like the ex Swiss Downhill World Champion Bernhard Russi who still plans the World Cup runs.

But every year there are fools who know better where to ski,and succumb to the call of virgin snow, even after heavy snowfalls with an Avalanche alert like on Sunday.

To me it isn’t being clever,it’s just being downright stupid.

  1. But sadly, it’s also being downright inevitable.
    We will always have fools.

    On a lighter note, hope you enjoyed your holiday. Only just realised you were back.

  2. Yes, but I wish fools would think more of other people, meaning here in Switzerland anyway, the members of the mountain rescue teams who risk their own lives trying to
    save them.

    Thankyou we had a great time in Canada and the three weeks went by too quickly.
