Skiing!

Alright everyone, I'm here to let you know, that I finally went Snow Skiing for my very first time EVER!! It was actually quite fun we went to Park City! Christy and I attempted to Snowboard but we had no idea what we were doing and didn't have snowboarders there to teach us, so we switched in our boards for skis. It was a lot of fun!! I was surprised I like it so much. But I wouldn't have been able to do it without Stan, he's a great teacher. I went down the bunny hill a few times :-D I actually prefer the bunny hill... But I attempted the great monster!! The actual mountain. I did all right for my first time, that's what they told me anyway haha. It was a little overwhelming and it took me quite a while to make it to the bottom. I did crash once! haha, everyone there would tell ya that it was pretty funny..... I was turning a corner and it was a little icey so I couldn't stop for the life of me. I was going too fast so Stan couldn't stop me, and straight ahead was a huge drop off into the trees.... That didn't look too appealing to me to crash into. So with my greatest effort, I turned to my right up a little hill on the side, I went flying up then landed and rolled, haha. I didn't get hurt one bit, which was quite amazing to me, but what a fall. The bystanders (friends) haha started laughing and said watching me crash made their day, they said just a puff of snow went flying when I landed and I looked graceful... Man, I would have to agree with them that it was pretty funny, I was sure laughing even though shooken up and scared the rest of the day to ski! But it was worth it, it really was a lot of fun. Here are a few pictures to share!
