Bardonecchia, Day 3

Okay, those of you who are checking the blog regularly, you can breathe a sigh of relief: we've made it to Day 3 of Bardonecchia. On the third day, we went ice skating in the morning and then had lunch at Melezet, which is a quaint skiing center just outside of Bardonecchia. The first picture is actually from the second day, but captures the some of the spirit at the ski resorts. Apparently, winter sun-bathing is a popular sport. They had stacks of sun-bathing chairs for tired athletes to kick back, relax, and take in the sun. The next picture is of Melezet itself, nestled in the Susa Valley, and then a picture of the snow-boarding half-pipe in the snow. We never saw the half-pipe in action, but if you zoom in on the left side of the billboard, you can see who won the medals in the 2006 Olympics.







Here's us on our cute little ice-skating rink. We were the only ones on it for most of the morning!







And finally, to wrap things up, here's me illustrating my stunning sense of balance.

So you've probably seen all you ever thought you'd see of Bardonecchia, but since we like the town so much, we might go back in the summer. If we do, rest assured that you'll be seeing more exciting pictures!
