After months of checking the weather every day and waiting for snow on the slopes of Romme, Borlänge, we decide in the evening that tomorrow we go.
Winter has not really been as usual so I had given up the idea that it will be any skiing. Now it has finally been a few nights in Borlänge with sub-zero temperatures and Romme alpin has had time to get on some snow and after they managed to keep 21 slopes running in the early warm ski season with a lot of grass stains and swampy dirty snow, it finally looks like it is white on the webcams and the grass is no longer visible. They have even been able to open slopes so now 28/33 slopes are running since a couple of days. It is probably the last opportunity to go for us this season as there are only 5 weekends left after this as Romme is open. But you never know!
After hearing an ex number of times a day for an ex numbers of month that Stefan wants to ski maybe my ears will have a quiet time finally ;)
It was a close call that we got away when one wheel layer on the car became very noisy just before departure the day before.
Friday afternoon and I did a long shot and called my best workshop that I entrusted my cars to for many years. I asked if the possibility existed to change the wheel bearing and the counterquestion became, when do you want? I responded with both banter and seriousness, Now! I heard how almost the person on the other end went after his breath and wonder what time it was. The answer was, I'm leaving now to get the spare part! In 1 1/2 hours I then had a newly fixed car.
I would highly recommend a high-quality workshop with fantastic service for those who do not have any good today. Mekonomen auto repair shop Syd/Autoservice Huddinge.
Get up early in the morning and pack us out in the car and so off. 3 hour drive if it's without stops, but we choose to stop at Mc Donalds in Hedemora and borrow the toilet before the last stop.
On site in Romme we hurry to the rental to rent equipment for the young people.
The sun is shining, good snow on the slopes and it is between -6°C – 1°C, can not be better ski weather.
We went skiing for about 2 hours and then took a cozy break in the ski lodge with some cola and some sweets. Then we'll take a couple more hours on the slopes.
The snow on the slopes during the week has become really good and we could vary between blue, red and black slopes. The first hours were best because then it was just right amount with people, then there were more people than us who thirsted for skiing and it became more crowded on the slopes.
Then we were quite happy and started to head home again with a little snacks in the car.
I didn't really think there would be any skiing this year so feel really happy and satisfied, as well as the rest of the family.
