Skiing in Saas-Fee

A group of over twenty (including friends) from church went skiing in Saas-Fee, Switzerland at Easter in 2006 with Oak Hall. Some of us were relative novices while others had been on the slopes several times before. Nevertheless, everyone was managing to ski well by the end of the week and raring to go again next year!

Here are a few pictures from the trip with various comments.
