When we were just starting Kat’s skis came loose. Mrs. Hobbs went back to the house with Kat. Kat really wanted to go to the end of the trail, but she did not finish it.
Trayl Wilson and Amber Lenard had a little competition of who could fall the least. Trayl noticed that he was losing. He changed the game to who could fall the most. It was looking good for Trayl afterward.
Trayl was focused on falling while the rest of us were trying to stay on our skis. When Trayl fell, Amber laughed. After that, just a few seconds later, she fell and this went back and forth.
Trayl fell about 120 to 150 times. He would even fall down when he didn’t have skis on. Everyone fell more than once. Falling on this trip was a real skill. We would fall up hill, downhill, and on corners. Falling on our face, down and uphill; falling on our butts on the corners was the best part of the entire trip.
The pain from falling is easy to feel when you are not wearing gloves. It is painful when you have fallen a lot. You start to feel the coldness going through your body.
The six-mile trip was long and tiring. If you ever go on a trip like ours take only essential gear. The trip was filled with pain, and experience. We looked at this trip as an adventure of fun, filled with experience, and pain. On one of the stops our teacher Mr. Voley asked if anyone needed a helicopter. I fell and Mr. Hobbs says, “We need one up here.” Everyone started laughing.
Skiing is the best workout. I would recommend it for someone wanting to be out and doing something. Do a short trail until you are used to it. Most people would attempt the long trail first then go to the short trail, but I recommend you do the short trails first then go on the long ones.
