We arrived at the condo in Canmore last night, but before we left I had a rather unique photo opportunity as Father Christmas flew in to visit the children at Ralston School in a Gazelle helicopter (obviously the reindeer were resting ahead of their big day!)
We had a good journey up to the mountains only slightly delayed after we got stuck in our first snow drift (outside our house) and had to be towed out (with our other car!)
The condo is fantastic and we've already got the Christmas tree up. We're having a weekend chilling out and will be hitting the ski slopes on Christmas Eve. Jim's pre-booked for a week's skiing and I'll probably spend a couple of days in board school and then see how it goes.
The free wifi is a God send and we've already got good use out of it by using Skype to call friends in Germany and the UK.
