From Hola:

Baqueira-Beret has started 2006 with such a heavy storm, that many visitors have chosen to remain inside the hotels and not to venture themselves in the tracks now covered with snow. In spite of that, this season is the best one of the history of Baqueira-Beret (a total of 786 621 fortaits have been sold, i.e. 100 000 more than last year) and many well-known faces continue choosing this ski resort. Among them, it’s the Royal Family.
Infantas Elena and Cristina with their husbands and children are already in the greatest Spanish ski station. At the moment, the Princes of Asturias have not gone to Baqueira and it continues being an incognito whether this year little Infanta Leonor will meet the snow or not. Probably due to the heavy weather that whips the station, the Princes have chosen the pleasant climate of Lanzarote, since their vacations are limited. Surely, although the prudence decides by themselves, Don Felipe and Doña Letizia (who started receiving ski classes, as soon as her commitment with the Prince became public) will miss their traditional white escape.

I do not believe that Letizia could ski, probably the doctor does not allow it to her yet, sufficient time has not passed from the Caesarean. Normally they recommend to wait at least three months to do sports that require a lot of physical effort. Besides, with two months Leonor scarcely she might go out of house.
Normally the Prince is in the habit of being going to Baqueira to ski last weekend of January coinciding with his birthday. Now in Baqueira there are too many famous people and too much journalist.

Hopefully, the snow storm will finish soon and everyone on Baqueira can enjoy their vacations. I'm glad to see Elena and Cristina vacationing together, that is very good, specially for the children who will be able to enjoy sometime together.

Bad weather prevents put real in Baqueira

The bad weather in Val d´Aran yesterday prevented the traditional photographic appointment of members of the royal family with mass media in level 1,800 of Baqueira Beret. The families of the Dukes of Lugo and the Dukes of Palm finally decided not to go to the tracks by the inclemency meteorological, although it hopes that the appointment with the snow of the infants Elena and Cristina, her husbands and their children is made today if the time accompanies. It will be the occasion to verify the evolutions in the ski of the grandsons of the Kings and the evolutions of infant Elena, one completed medical instructor of snowboard. Elena, Cristina and her families have been the only members of the real family that have fulfilled the traditional vacacional stay in Baqueira.

Wao, Elena does snowboard, that is really great and it shows how good sportwoman she is. She is for sure very good if she does snowboard instead of skiing.

From Hola:

Dukes of Lugo and the Dukes of Palma were finally able to enjoy their favourite snow sports. Due to the storm that has affected Baqueira in the last days, the Infantas had not been able to go to the tracks.
This is a traditional family appointment in the winter resort, to which only the Princes of Asturias missed, as they preferred the smooth temperatures of Lanzarote, to enjoy their Christmas vacations.
As the storm went away, the Dukes have taken advantage of the last hours in the Catalan station (they return to Madrid to celebrate the 68th birthday of king Don Juan Carlos and the Military Passover) to ski with their children. Froilán and Victoria Federica shared pranks with Juan Valentin, Pablo Nicolás and Miguel, while Irene, who is still very small, did not come outside with her brothers, due to the cold.
Doña Elena has returned to the skis, after several seasons without doing it, whereas Doña Cristina has stayed away from the tracks last year, due to her pregnancy.

According to the last pictures that Elsa posted, it seems that Elena has prefered to go skiing, maybe because of her children, as they are skiing too. It seems to me that her husband didnt bring his skis.

well, seeing the last photo from goff, i think Jaime accompanied his children to go skiing...

The Spanish royals really made me happy during this new year/christmas holiday. first we get to see Infanta Leonor in La Mareta, and now the Infantas with their family in Baquiera.. :) :)
now, we just got to wait for them to get together for leonor's christening.. :o

It is nice to see him skiing, I was wondering if he was avoiding this kind of sport as he had some medical problems once. I agree with you, this holidays has been full of family meetings and it is very nice to see the infanta's sharing sometime together with their families!

The Infantas and their children have carried out amusing scenes in the snow. It should be emphasized the magnificent state of Jaime de Marichalar, who did not fear to wear skis.
