Already two months have passed since I left my Canadian home for Italy, although it feels like just two weeks. We 'celebrated' the beginning of February by spending the day skiing at San Simone. Turns out, it's pretty much the same as in Canada which is refreshing- it's a language that all lovers of the sport can speak and I felt quite 'at home' in the snow and the mountains. The differences were few: Italian instead of English around you, electronic ski passes instead of those annoying stickers that you can never get quite straight and wrinkle-free, and the food is exceptional. Evidently there are some mid-mountain chalets/restaurants that attract even non-skiers at mid-day just for lunch. In fact, some of Massi's friends met us today and literally walked up the mountain on foot for the food: the Italian equivalent of a 5-star Tripadvisor review. Check out the food photos below and be the judge!
