Let me start off by saying that I can see why skiing could be considered a dangerous sport. My husband and I had never been skiing before but on day 2 of our vacation, we decided to go skiing with the kids! Now from what I hear from the kids’ instructor, the kids were naturals at skiing and really seemed to get the concept. My husband also had a great day skiing. I, on the other hand, was not as lucky as they were.
I recall there was a lot of screaming (from me) and calls for help (also from me) and on more than one occasion I had to be rescued (by my instructor and from others). Thankfully, though I wasn’t hurt, at least not physically anyway.
Despite it all, I decided to try again the next day and I’m really glad I did. I figured out how to turn properly and how to slow myself down by turning and had so much fun doing it. In fact I would say I was pretty pretty good. That said, don’t look for me to be skiing down anybody’s mountainside any time soon (or ever!), but I can safely say that I will be back here next year to do it again.
