The Big C
Champery is soooooo cool there is so much skiing to be had!!!!! This place is really cool because there is over 211 lifts that connect over 12 towns to Champery! I like this place because it is so small and everybody knows each other like Truckee. Champery is located in the heart of the alps. The first day here when we woke up Jacob and I looked out side our balcony and the mountains were HUGE!!!!!!!!!!!!!! The people here speak a lot of languages here like Italian, German, French, and of course Swiss.
One day Yacob and I were on the chair lift getting ready to go skiing and I saw a little red dot in the sky and this guy was paraponting(paragliding) ! Jacob and I looked at each other we knew what we are going to do today. Next thing we knew we were at a paraponting school! It was a hard ruthless torturous work and I can go on and on and on for hours! At least we slept well that night. The next morning we were really exited to go base-jumping! One of the things our instructor said that we shouldn't do that is kind of weird is that you can't do corks, rodeos, spins and that kind of stuff, so we can only do like front flips and back flips. I went first I did a sweet superman front flip superman front flip and pulled my parachute and landed safely. Jacob went next and did a awesome double back flip!
Alright Yacob and I have to return our parachutes BY!
Logybear P.S. Please don't tell our parents about this.
