Who say’s women are bad drivers??
A couple of weeks ago the Fish and Pips team joined up with team Project Ski for a ‘skidooing’ outing. For those unfamiliar with the word, a skidoo is a motorized toboggan with the versatility to ride both on trail and off. They are agile, easy to handle and can cope with anything from bumps to powder. What could be simpler we thought!!
So, we paired up chose our skidoos and off we set. Within 2 secs, Holly and Naomi (I’m not going to say who was driving!!) had careered off in the wrong direction, turned the skidoo onto it’s side narrowly missing a support of the Tommeuse lift…much to the amusement of the people in the chair above. Fortunately they both came up laughing and were back in the saddle as soon as the machine had been turned back over.
We then all set off into the ‘outback’ seeing places in Val d’Isere that we had not been to all season. A couple more scarey moments saw another Skidoo turn on its side and one flying through the air only to land safely and continue on at great speed. The only way to end an outing like this was of course with champagne and a picnic.
