  1. I've never used the word "piste", even though it's identical to italian "piste" (pista singular).
    What a piece of news.
    Not so much snow here on the Alps, so sad. I can guess it even watchin outside my windows. Much more snow on Apennines and south Italy. What a paradox, guys! It's been ages since i last went to ski anyway.
    So you're really a sporty girl! Very good for you. A snowboarder also!
    What mountain range is that, if i may ask?

  2. Oh, how much i hated drag lifts when i was learning how to ski as a child. I kept falling from them. I kept crossing my skis' tops. A nightmare.

  3. The funny thing is that in italian we call skilift the drag-lift.
    Since you're a skier you might already know that.
    I like how the european languages are blended with each other.

  4. Forgot so many like zeach, zeached, steez, cork, yard sale, taco, butter, crunchy, fakie, switch, gaper and pow

  5. Anna, May you always be rewarded and blessed by ALLAH Almighty…..Ameen. You are one of the best teachers…
