Well the girls did it - they won...  How wonderful. They won in the Best Visitors Trail category and we are all very very proud of them - especially as they had to endure all those bars, sunshine and skiing!  Hannah will be putting up a post detailing their run when her hangover clears and she can see singularly again... So well done again girls and just love the costumes - and no, I won't be sporting this little number at the Ski Show in October!!
