Yep - I have never skied, but Ski Sunday always leads nicely up to Christmas.

Back to ski jumping.  I visited the Olympic Ski Jump in Oslo (in summer).  It is a long way down and very steep.  That might sound obvious, but it still takes your breath away.

I go to Bischofshofen every January for the finale of the 4 Hills tournament, it's brilliant to watch live, and yes it is breathtaking

Yes, one here.  What channel is it on please?

Thirty years ago I had 1/2 dozen ski-ing holidays and loved it I considered myself a "brave" intermediate, probably the gluhwein I always had for breakfast ;)
I once skied the 1976 olympic downhill course at Igls, the one Franz Klammer won in two minutes, it took me 14 minutes and was absolutely cream crackered and at the end.  Balls of steal, those guys ( and gals).

I've often wonderred, how do you start ski jumping, at some poit you've got to launch yourself off that hill?

https://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/winter-olympics/47113853 arguably the greatest Ski Jumper of all time, Matti Nykaenen, passed away on Monday at the age of 55. Never saw him live but was enthralled by him on TV.
