The Club Ball was held on Saturday 15th November when the IP Room was host to 8 tables of guests dressed in their finery!
Bubbles, canapes and a photographer to snap people as they arrived got the night off to a promising start!! This was followed by a scrumptious 3 course meal in the beautifully decked out room, a far cry from where we normally eat our chips on a Saturday afternoon!

Arriving at the bottom of the slope, we found the freestyle coaches who were putting the final touches to the boxes that would be used later in the session. There are a mixed bunch of skiers in the group this evening, ranging from 6 year olds to teenagers, right up to the over 30 somethings (ahem). After a few warm up runs, Josh and David (freestyle coaches) assemble the group at the top of the waves. We were allowed a warm up run, just to make sure we could cope with the waves and then the fun began.
