Last Friday I decided I wanted to put on some skis and give it a go since I haven't done it in about 6 years. I have been snowboarding in that time frame but I never got very good at that and I always ended up with a very sore bum. So, on Monday I convinced Ben and Kjersty to go skiing up at Wolf Mountain.
Kjersty had never been before and I've been telling her for about 8 years that I would take her sometime. Finally, we made it.
She went down the "bunny hill" twice and I got bored so I convinced her to go up a lift because it was the exact same only longer.
She only fell 3 times during the day (4 if you count the time her ski fell off on the ski lift and she had to get off wearing only one ski). I think my teaching method worked out great. Just throw them out there and teach them what they need to know when the time comes. It worked for us!
It was a nice sunny day and I finally got that out of my system. Who knows when I will go skiing next. Maybe it will be another six years before I go again. Probably. Since Ben has decided he doesn't like skiing anymore. Alas. I guess we'll have to find some other sport to entertain us during the winters.
