I had my first day skiing of the season yesterday and I felt like I was on top of the world! It was such a good feeling. I was pretty scared when I went up with the chairlift the first time. I was really wondering if I could remember how I did and all that! I decided to take it nice and slow get some turns going and just go down the hill. I did – I survived down the mountain with no falls or anything. Pretty proud of myself! Only thing I was struggling with was my feet sleeping. Oh man they have to get used to the tight boots again thats for sure. I had to stop between each run and let blood go to my feet again and then up the chairlift again. I managed two chairlift in one day and even the first day! (I see it as an accomplishment haha). Did some good runs and got really confident about it. My favourite run yesterday was Tranquilliser. It’s blue on top and turns green further down. But it was just a good one!
I hope to go out as much as possible – I will get my work schedule today and take it from there. There is a package with 5 lessons of 2 hours with an instructor where I can learn how to snowboard! I did something similar last year on skies and learned so much from it. I think it will be good to do it on my snowboard this year and get that going! 🙂
AND IT WAS SNOWING A LOT UP THERE – So stoked!
