I did it. I'm alive. I survived my first ski trip! But to say I am in pain would be an understatement. I was warned that I wouldn't be able to walk the next day, but when I got home last night, I didn't think it would be a big deal since I didn't feel any different. Wrong. When I woke up this morning it was a serious struggle to move my legs to get out of bed. Let's not even talk about what it felt like to walk downstairs.
noone ever said ski clothes were cute
All pain aside, I had a blast and can't wait to go skiing again. And the good news is I only fell once... when I thought it would be a good idea to ski down to the novice slope because I was ready, but in reality I didn't know how to stop as well as I had thought and took an intentional slide down rather than a face plant into the snow mobile I was currently headed towards. Needless to say, I never made it off the bunny slope. Maybe next time?
But hey, I was better than I had thought I would be. Chris may say otherwise. I'll leave it up to you to decide.
I do want to give it one more try before the season is over. Hopefully next time I can make it to the novice slope without wiping out on the way there? We'll see!
I had no idea how steep and straight down the harder slopes were. It was seriously terrifying to look at and I wonder how in the world do people do it? Seriously, props to you if you can. I'm jealous because it looks so fun!
Until next time..
Have you ever been skiing? What was your first try like?
