Inventaire d’hiver à la Prévert

Back from our ski trip, a nonsensical summary à la Prévert:

twice nine hour drive and a dead car battery,
one hour for putting chains on and five minutes to take them off,
seven saucissons for 20 euros and 30 euros for a kilo of Beaufort,three days of big white-out and one sunny afternoon,
-13 on the first day, +13 two days later,
five runs on the super-G slope every early morning,
a two-hour off-piste course and my first attempt at skating since 1988,
ten seconds stuck in the fog wrongly thinking I was still moving,
and a fraction of a second to face the opposite,

one broken snowboard and dozens of falls,
an entire Pasaalina and a few pages of Banks,
great packed snow and equally great powdery snow,
lots of laughs and bitter cold on the ski-lift,…
