Back from Skiing

Skiing was so much fun! I have to say I’m a natural, Victor not so much. We took lessons first thing in the morning. We took a break for lunch and then 2 short water breaks during the day. The rest of the time we were skiing.

I didn’t have too much trouble picking up the basics. After a few hours on the slopes Victor was doing great also. We stuck to the smaller slope for a while. Eventually, we moved on to the bigger slope we had to take the lift up to go down. My first time down the bigger slope I was going so fast. I finally stopped at the bottom and my legs were shaking. It was such a rush. The first time Victor made it down that slope without falling I was waiting at the bottom and someone came flying by me. When I turned around, I realized it was him. I was so proud, but could not stop laughing.

Unfortunately, my camera wouldn’t turn on. We bought a disposable camera on our way up the mountain. 1-hour photo developing seems to have become obsolete. We are now waiting a week to have our pictures developed. I see us buying a new camera in the near future. The camera did get dropped in the snow once. I am hoping it didn’t ruin the film. We will know in a week.

We both are looking forward to going again before the season is over!


First Ever Ski Trip

Victor and I have finalized our plans for an impromptu ski trip. Since neither of us have been skiing before, I believe the decision was a result of watching the X Games non stop the past week.

While sitting around watching the Games the other night Victor said he wanted to go skiing and asked me to look into it. Due to the result of our spontaneous tendencies and impatience, this weekend we will be hitting the slopes.

Because we have absolutely no clue what we are doing, we opted to rent everything and take lessons. The mountain is only an hour and a half from us so we will be leaving early Sunday morning for our adventure. We didn’t book a hotel but agreed if we are really tired after skiing we will rent a room.

I am going to go buy us some dri-tech gear today. If  I have the time I am going to try to knit us some hats. For anything we are forgetting, we will just wing it. (I CANNOT forget sunscreen!)

I am so excited! I love firsts!
