I'm wondering if anyone can help me and my husband find our ski legs again?
I went skiing in Saariselka earlier this year. I had completed 2 full days skiing at Manchester's indoor slope (Chillfactore if anyone knows it) where I could ski from the top quite confidently with linked turns and some parallel turns, picking up a fair bit of speed in places. The instructor described the slope as a 'hard blue/easy red' because although it is straight, it is narrow.
However when I got to Saariselka I was terrified of the 'red' runs which looked ridiculously steep from the bottom. I managed to brave going up to the top of the green run which was fine but but felt too nervous to do the 'blue' run by myself. Now my husband thinks skiing just isn't for us and doesn't fancy trying it again. I want to give it another go but I am wondering, how do the so called 'red' and 'blue' runs in Saariselka compare to other resorts in Finland and the rest of Europe? Are they just harder or about the same?
