We've just landed in the chalet - it's pretty damn cool. Chilling out at the end of the journey, kicking back on the most comfortable bean-bag/sofa ever, sipping on a beer and updating my blog, it's all good.
Well, almost all good. We've had a bumpy start to the trip: Ciara's snowboard bag was left behind in London, which is apparently fairly common for BA's London to Zurich connection. Not good. At best it's going to arrive first thing tomorrow morning - I just hope we don't end up renting for the first day.
And the snow. Well, there's loads of it, but it's warm, which is making things quite variable. Lower down there is rain. Up on the top there's almost too much snow. Apparently, some of the lifts aren't open because there's a lot that needs to be made avalanche-safe. I'm intruiged to see what the first day is gonna be like. No complaints though, I'm stoked.
Snowmotions picked four of us up from Zurich for our transfer, which worked out great. We got the low down on a lot of local knowledge on the way to Flims, which is just what you want. Jason, the guy in charge, has been super helpful. On first impressions, I can't recommend Snowmotions enough.
Right now I'm hooked up to the wireless connection in the chalet so updating should be pretty easy throughout the stay. That's all for now. Gav.
Hey guys - glad you got there safe, bummer about ciara's boardbag! hope it gets there real soon. Get plenty of footage dude and have a awesome time!

Thanks mate. We're working on the footage... picked up a little today. It also seems that we'll get the bag tomorrow (Tuesday) :-)
