ski day

day of skiing on Cypress Mountain..

Recently, I took on skiing as my new hobby. As a previous very happy snowboarder, I wasn’t sure how this skiing thing would go on.. would I be able to learn it at all.. would I enjoy it?.. With many doubts about the whole experience, first I started with a lesson for beginners on Cypress Mountain. Plowing style skiing went relatively well, and I HAVE TO SAY, getting off the chairlift on skis was bliss!! (In comparison with getting off a chairlift on a snowboard..). All I had to do is to stand up, nice! After that, I took some lessons with my ACC club, and skied every weekend on Cypress for the past five weeks. Now.. I am starting to go down ever so scary Black Diamond runs.. skiing is fun!
