Yesterday was our first time skiing. Both of us are the only complete beginners who haven’t skied before in our beginners group. And I’m the only one who fell more than anybody else. Quite embarrasing really, although I don’t mind falling down, as it’s not very painful with all the layers of clothes!It wasn’ until we took some risk to try on one of the blue runs that we started to enjoy a little bit more. Today was really good. Finally manage to get a hang on some of the basics. It really does make a difference if you have personal instructor to point you out what’s the right thing to do. We were lucky to have this guy who was willing to teach just the two of us, as our group is rather large and there is a mixture of people with different skiing experiences. W wondered why some of them are even in the beginners group in the first place!There are three more lessons to go. It’ll be interesting to find out how good we get by the end of the whole skiing trip. As it stands I’m already very happy the fact that I finally know how to do some skiing. It is really good fun. Well worth the effort, although it’s really hard work carrying our skis and boots few hundred metres to the skiing area. Especially on the return trip, when you are very likely already knackered after all the skiing. In fact we feel that this is the toughest part of the skiing so far!

  1. Hope you continue to have fun. We are at friend’s lodge in winter wonderland, went cross-country skiing( more flat grounds) for the first time.They live next to a State Park.Balancing is defintely not that easy, but a good workout. We were even able to skii in the woods and popped out right next to the lake. Instead of walking on the sand, we were on the skis next to the water..Everyone else had to wait for me…my muscles’re sore..Happy New Year!!!
