So before I left for Utah to go skiing with Hyatt’s family I asked for prayers. Someone must have answered my request because I didn’t break any bones! We skiied for three days and it was awesome!
Day 1 – Brighton Ski Resort
The first day we went to Brighton ski resort. I refused to take skiing lessons – so I started off on the bunny slope (fairly successful) – after three runs down that, my instructor extraordinaire *the Ninja* decided I could handle something more. I was pretty stoked to be there at this point
After getting off a much higher lift, I proceeded to fall down repeatedly (no less than 10x) on a very steep blue. I got so frustrated I took off my skis and tried to walk down the mountain (that’s not as easy as it sounds). I eventually got over my frustrations and struggled down to the base. It was finally lunchtime and I was thankful for a chance to warm up and take a break from falling down. The afternoon was much more fun as I fell down a lot less and completed several green runs.
Day 2 – Snowbasin
On the second day we had originally planned to go to Alta, the highest resort, but due to a late start and bad traffic we trekked to Snowbasin. Snowbasin was really pretty too. They didn’t have as many easy courses so I had to step up my game and do some blues. I got ticked at my teacher (Ninja, again) because he was overly confident in my skills and I had to go down a race slope (very icy, very steep). But the girls and I ended up having a pretty great day.
Day 3 – Alta
