After some moderate success on the learning slope, Kristian convinced me to try the green slope pictured above (or was it blue? Supposed to be an easy one either way). I was told that I looked rather freaked out after safely returning to the base camp but that it was somewhat decent attempt; go go go! Heh, things take time I guess.
Either way, it was awesome and I’m definitely going to go again soon. Especially as I shelled out quite an amount of money for skiing clothes but ended up renting the skiis, boots and other stuff.
I also brought my camera and a set of lenses (the 10-22, 24-70, 70-200 and 2x extender) though, since the weather was quite bad, I only used my recently acquired 50mm f/1.4 - the bokeh on that one is awesome, though it’s a bit difficult to focus correctly although that is a known issue.
