Apart from the high-tech ski clothing draped over the backs of the wooden chairs, it's a timeless scene. There is no traffic noise and not a modern building in sight, only the schuss of passing skiers, twitching their noses at the glorious smells wafting out from the kitchen.

What the athletes and the background and coaching teams have achieved is truly inspiring. A great result despite the obvious challenges posed by UK sports funding.

So go on, do something stupid. Take a chance on that tandem skydive, google that slack lining school, splash out on that ice holing holiday and book in that bobsleigh break. It's all covered, although, interestingly, I couldn't find skinny dipping anywhere. Oh well.
