Finally, finally, finally! It’s a mountain miracle! THE IMAGES ALIGNED! *throws dance party*
two extra images, both taken in the ski lodge. and now, for the contest entry…
story behind the photo: i took this photo in my local ski lodge before i went skiing. my school hosts a ski club every friday, and i go with a group of friends to the mountains. most of my friends have skiied before, but i was the first timer of the group.
the first time i got into skis, i almost knocked a poor 7-year-old over. thankfully, we weren’t even on the bunny hill… although i’m not sure if that makes it even sadder.
after my lesson, my friends decided to take me down Infinity (the flattest and the trail most suited for beginners) and when faced with a steep-at-the-time turn, i freaked out… and went into ESM. ESM means emergency slide mode, which basically is me purposefully falling down instead of going off the side of the trail. It seemed like a good idea at the time, but not when it took me & my friend 7. Minutes. To get up.
Anyways, you probably are wondering about the 1,00o feet of mountain thing, and this is already getting wayyyy too long. after i got better at stopping and controlling my skis, they decided they could take me down a more difficult trail. this was still a green circle (easiest trail) but slightly harder. the lift ride up was really long, (9 minutes) and before i got on, my friends had neglected to tell me that the trail was 1000. feet. up. i was better at control, but still not perfect… thankfully, the trail was flat and i…
didn’t. fall. once!
and yeah, my long ramble story is over. i might do a post solely dedicated to my ski-ventures, but this isn’t the place. XD
kudos if you read that!
