Proof

Just to show that I do occasionally ski. Really. This is a trip down the very first run I ever did - and it's still one of my favourites. I love the trees, the snow, the light, the mountains peeping through, the silence of the world - and I always imagine this music, by Prokofiev, as I glide along.

Plus, at the end, is a restaurant with the world's best apple fritters.

Next: a short video of me actually evangelising...

Loved the video, your nephew wants to know when you are taking him ! He seems to recall you promised to take him, incredible memory! Impressive video whilst ski-ing, but does everyone know the story about your first attempt at ski-ing?

O it's not that good a story.
Though interestingly out in Wengen I did meet someone wearing a Ski Rossendale hat.
