I'm not your average skier or snowboarder, in fact I'm far from a rookie when it comes to the slopes. Can someone just pull me in a wagon down the slopes? or is that frowned upon? I do know my way around a closet and how to look the part. So skiing was no exception. If you're anything like me or even if you know what you're doing be sure to check out this pieces below!
For the past 4 years we have been skiing and for some reason I just can't get the hang of it. I don't know what to do with my hand, then I have to bend and turn my knees too, and whats with making a pizza with your skiis? The fact that it's such a dangerous sport and every time we're there someone is getting pulled away in an ambulance, just makes me not trust myself and the slippery hills. Next time I think I'll be watch from the window next the the fireplace staying warm, blogging or reading a book.
Or taking a nap... yea mostly napping.
It's always fun to have an excuse to buy new clothes. This time, I really needed some help. I don't do well in the cold, in-fact I hate it and I already knew I was going to be terrible so I needed to at least look like I knew what I was doing. But by the time I was on the board there was no helping me there. It was obvious I was awful. I didn't remember a thing from last year or the year before, or the year before that. It was a disaster. I stayed on the bunny hills the entire time and never gained the confidence the attempt the bigger hills. Once I started to loose feeling in my fingers (it was below 0 when we went) and smacked my face on the ground I decided to call it a night. Went inside and got a slice of pizza and waited for everyone else to finish.
Going with a group of friends was fun and I was guaranteed to find someone close to my skill level so I wasn't left alone all night. It was a fun trip and certainly something we will all remember.
