Meribel Day 3

Very tall chair lift into the mist before crapping my pants at 2400m on a ridge. Down we came with broad beems and special mud spattered teeth. Nothing rivals the taste of the piste.

Second.ascent and the mood was.raw, red 8, you bet bring it on. Boring pad burning fire roads left us un impressed. Les raced off with me hot in pursuit fast fire road, where's Dozer and Sicknote? Never leave a fallen soldier, even if it's Dozer and.Sicknote. Turn and face the mountain. Les has gone. Cycle up, Dozer walking around, Sicknote's down. Blooded floor, soldier down. French.interest in the pommes discomfort was unabated. A teenage girl cycle passed, Sicknote realised the error of his ways. A calm descent to a waiting rescue van with Dozer in the lead, we were all safe.

Only beer could save the day, thank god for happy hour.The evening barbeque passed quietly with tails of the days exploits.And then there were 3.

I would just like to say a big thanks to Lee our chalet host, who wasn't out with us today. For coming back from his shopping trip to help rescue Sicknote off the mountain and then taking us down to A&E.

Hope Sicknote is OK - suspect he will be in trouble when he gets home.
All sounds very exciting! Defintely for 'Big boys' :)
