Beautiful tracks with mulled wine drunk can develop good speed and facilitate rapid entry into the “fly”. That is why at Bukovel as well as at the others ski resorts you should be careful while skiing and be cautious that such “fly bomber pilot” not push and pull you, perhaps, in his last flight. :) . It is better drink mulled wine after skiing and better for those who have finished “fly” successfully.
