Baby, let me follow you down

Several achievements today. I seem to be doing something a little like
a parallel turn; I skied the path through to the piste by our apartment
before any of the youngsters did (although I only put my skis on after
safely negotiating the initial stretch, which falls steeply to a stream
and certain disaster for an inexperienced skier); and I joined the
youngsters, under Sarah's guidance, on a blue run from 1850 back down to
1550. It had been snowing all day, and the powder was thick, so it
tripped me up more than once, but I managed to tack back and forth
across the piste to such an extent that a previously unused muscle in my
groin started complaining bitterly about the whole thing.
