OMG...that sounds horrifying. Thank God he's ok.
Yes, he's fine thank you PP.  Just turned 6 so pretty resilient at that age.  Was very scary to see it unfold in front of my eyes.  Seeing his legs all twisted under the buried snow and hime screaming didn't help.  Took today off but he's going back to Ski School in the morning.

At first I thought he was going to be getting a ride.  Some days I fell like I'm on the set of M.A.S.H. with the chopper flying around all the time.  The chopper landed right in front of me today to take someone away.

Well, you're definitely doing the right thing getting them to take lessons instead of just sending them off to go for it, like some parents do.

Be careful, we all need you and your family in one piece.

I love my car.

What a horrible thing to happen Brettski, very glad he came through without a scratch. Give him a pat on his fuzzy little head from Uncle Scott :)
I bet it was more terrifying for you than it was for him. It's amazing the level of panic that sets in when one of your kids gets into a serious situation.

Stay safe !!

That is why hoards of Australians head to Japan, guaranteed great snow, new culture, food to die for and in comparison to Aust…its cheaper

Been many times and have always hit great powder and even better food.

Our little Brody got buried in a minor Avalanche yesterday, only his head was sticking out.  Was in Ski School at the time.  Luckily for some reason I'd decided to follow them on that run and was right there.  A lot of Adults came to his rescue very quickly.  I'm surprised you didn't hear him screaming over there. :)

I bury my kids up to their necks in sand.

if you then place a cheese board cover over their heads, they  still look cute, but you can't hear so much.

Lift occasionally to break the seal, let a little air in, or a sandwich or something.

Parenting, 101.

I think your technique of putting them in an avalanche is a little extreme, but I DO know how annoying they can be.

 :thumbsup:


Glad the little blighter is ok, cool story for school upon return..... :cool:

Just got back from taking the boys night skiing, was a heap of fun.  Left the wife at home with a bottle of champagne. :)

Good value today CHF130 (A$160) for lift passes, for 2 adults and 2 kids from lunch to 9.30pm.

Got to 200 bonus points on my lift card which gives you a FREE day with access to the full Portes du Soleil resort.  650km of runs and and 195 lifts.  Solemen Finklestein is happy 360C I will try and use as many lifts as I can in one day. ;)

Was due to go to Perisher, but there's FA snow, so now to Queenstown instead.
