Can you tell me specifically what your daily routine was like?
As we were very lucky with the weather, it looked the same almost every day: mostly it was Thomas or me who made the first coffee at about 6am. Until 7am we had a first session to work off the daily business – because it doesn’t stop of course.
Everybody gathered for breakfast until about 7:15am and at 8am we started on the slopes. 8am. – that sounds pretty incredible, huh? But it actually worked every day.
The advantage is that A) you have a lot of the day and B) the slopes are in pristine condition.
Around 11:30am we had a break and whoever wanted to, had an early lunch at the hut or just had a drink. Afterwards we did some skiing and at 2pm we were mostly back in the valley and ready for work.
We defined a list of points that we wanted to work on during Ski & Work in advance. Depending on the topic, different people were required. Accordingly, different groups were formed in the afternoons to deal either with these topics or with day-to-day business.
From about 6pm we turned to cooking together and from about 8pm we finally slipped over to the evening discussions. These were also extremely valuable and important. Partly because we even managed to crack topics in the evening on which we only chewed around unsuccessfully during the day.
Between 10 and 11pm everybody went to bed – the next day we started early again.
That sounds rather exhausting, doesn’t it?
Yeah, when we got back home after the eight days, we were all pretty exhausted. When you think about the program, it’s no wonder. But we had a lot of fun and are very proud of what we achieved.
