In January 2021 my mate and I decided to go skiing for a week. We had talked about it annually since our last ski trip, some 5 years before (where we promised to go every year from then on).

Because I had spent quite a bit of time in Spain over the previous 18 months, we decided on Spain’s largest ski resort, Baqueira-Beret, in the Spanish Pyrenees. It had over a 150km’s of slopes and loads of blues, reds and a few blacks, so it was ideal.
