As my very favourite Canadian might say, it's Adiós, muchachos from me for a few days as we head off to Banff with some friends to do a spot of skiing at Lake Louise, Sunshine and Norquay. Conditions look good, with plenty of lovely powder still coming down, so fingers crossed it should be a pleasant break. One of the beauties of a holiday in the Canadian Rockies is that we're not just going to be skiing but will also likely include hot springs, husky sledding, snow shoeing, a bit of hockey, lots of delicious Alberta beef and, hopefully, loads of Roots fleeces. Should be good. I'm looking forward to it.
Given the events of a few days ago, you'll be pleased to note that we already ski wearing helmets. I imagine that a few more people will be now, not that I imagine it would have made very much difference to an innocuous seeming tumble like that on a nursery slope.
Anyway. Back in ten days or so. Have fun, y'all and see you on the other side.
I'm gonna sticker my helmet, I reckon. I've some leftovers from my Guitar Hero box. A nice skull and crossbones, some flames and a bit of lightning? Rock on......
