The opening ceremony was on at 2.am. this morning.  I couldn't face staying up that late to watch it...but I have watched some cheesy montage footage of it on Youtube.  I thought I would spare you the cheese, and just post up this awesome animation from the BBC.

Having gone to the Metro Ski Show last weekend, and with Freeze coming up this weekend, my thoughts are definitely drifting towards going snowboarding this winter.  I don't really like the thought of flying out to the alps, (for obvious environmental reasons) however cheap; so I usually try to take to Eurostar (but the prices are usually a bit too steep for me).

Yesterday I stumbled across this car share website Mountain Ride Share, designed to connect people travelling to and from ski resorts.

Their website is in Beta at the moment- so why don't you check out the site and help them develop this community, and maybe pick up some riding buddies along the way! 

If you apppeciate the mountains, you really should consider the effects your journey to them has.  Low budget airlines are not the way mes amis!
