You have to get up early to get first tracks at the famous Chatsworth ski resort in Derbyshire. Fortunately, not too early, as there was plenty of untouched powder when we showed up around 1pm. Conditions were great with 10cm of powder on a base of clumpy grass. The only disappointment was that the lifts were a little slow.

Rachel met powder snow for the first time while skiing, and handled it very well. Richard met a cow. Unfortunately, the day was devoid of cake.
