    Hi Anna, which microphone were you using? An external one? Beautiful location

  8. pile333 says:

    I've never used the word "piste", even though it's identical to italian "piste" (pista singular).
    What a piece of news.
    Not so much snow here on the Alps, so sad. I can guess it even watchin outside my windows. Much more snow on Apennines and south Italy. What a paradox, guys! It's been ages since i last went to ski anyway.
    So you're really a sporty girl! Very good for you. A snowboarder also!
    What mountain range is that, if i may ask?

  9. pile333 says:

    But is the plural of piste "pistes"? How should we pronounce it?

  10. pile333 says:

    Oh, how much i hated drag lifts when i was learning how to ski as a child. I kept falling from them. I kept crossing my skis' tops. A nightmare.

  11. Aliksey Filatov says:

    you are amazing girl

  13. Tercus Rafael says:

    I am cold after I have watched this video, blurrrr!

  14. pile333 says:

    The funny thing is that in italian we call skilift the drag-lift.
    Since you're a skier you might already know that.
    I like how the european languages are blended with each other.

  15. Kim Thomas says:

    I learned a new word, piste. Thank you.
