Yesterday, Adam and I went back to the ski resort to have some fun. Our original plan was to go today. But, the temp is gonna be in the 60’s today and we figured that would make for not great conditions on the slopes. It was around 50 yesterday. Not great for the slopes, but we went anyway.
It was a beautiful, sunny day. Adam was out of school for winter break. I had things to do in the morning, so we went to the slopes in the afternoon. It was not busy at all there, which was great for me. You see, I was going to attempt to get back on skis, and having fewer people there made me more comfortable.
I was in the ski club in high school, way back when. I was not great, but I had fun. When we went to this resort a few weeks ago, I didn’t ski. I took pics with my camera. This trip, however, I decided to give it a try.
We got our lift passes, and I had to rent skis and boots. Adam has his own snowboard and boots, so he was good to go. We started on the bunny hill. I surprised myself by graduating from there after just a few trips down. We moved over to the next hill, a little bigger than the bunny hill. The more we went down that hill, the better I felt, and the more confidence I gained.
It wasn’t long before I was ready to try a lift and a bigger hill. Adam stayed with me the whole time, instead of going and doing his own thing. I loved that! The first time down this bigger hill scared the crap out of me. You really pick up speed quickly! But, I did it! I had one wipeout, it was kind of fun! The hardest part of that was getting my skis back on on the hill.
We would spend the rest of the evening on this hill. I was getting comfortable there and was not ready to tackle anything bigger. It was so much fun!
As much as I want spring to get here, I wouldn’t mind having the opportunity to go back and ski some more this season. Hopefully, Christopher and Sarah can come next time.
It really is like riding a bike! Once you know how, it all comes back to you!
