It seems that I hadn’t posted anything for a long time. (Well, it’s true.)
I went skiing with my brother’s friend and
had dinner together in a Sichuan
restaurant on Valentine’s Day.
The person who offered it said that no one would like to go to Sichuan restaurant on that romantic night, but there were many people.
The point is: I SURVIVE! XD
It is not as serious as I said, though. However,
I did ask myself several times WHAT I AM DOING HERE when I was standing on the ski
I took a lesson because I was totally a beginner. Also, I borrow a pair of goggles, a pair of ski pants, and ski cap from his friends. It cost 80 bucks, including a lesson, equipment rental, and the ticket. It’s not so expensive.
It was the first time that I wore this kind of shoes. It was a little bit tight due to my woolen socks and the interior pants. I didn’t got used to walking in that. It is just like the boot of a pair of in-line skate, but heavier than that.
After I met the coach, we waited for other three people, and then we started our lesson.
From how to walk by ski to how to stop, we practiced on a small hill. Then, we went to a slope for beginners to gain some practical experience.
Out of my expectation, there was the first challenge waiting for me—an autowalk.(without handrail)
Even though the surface was kind of rough and uneven, I almost fell or slid down from it several times. Orz
I stood with my hand on the knees and kept talking to myself nervously till the end. Others were standing naturally to put their weights ahead. No one was as nervous as me. It’s kind of scary. Orz
During our practice, I fell three times while others hadn’t fallen once.
The trick of standing up on the ski slope is
making the skis vertical with the slope, or you will go straight down to the hell
after you stand up. XDrz
After lunch, my bro’s friends brought me to the top of a much longer slope for beginners where we have to take the ski lift to go on the top.
I couldn’t help thinking about the situation which we might fall from it when I was taking it. I’m kind of having acrophobia. Orz
Sometimes they stop the ski lift because some people are not used to taking it, they might fall down or couldn’t get on the cars.
I spent about two hours skiing on the same hill for three times. (People who are good at skiing might finish within five minutes for each time. XDrz)
This time, I couldn’t remember how many times I had fallen. For example, I would fall after making two to three times turns. Orz
This ski area includes four levels: beginners(green circle), intermediate(blue square), advanced(black diamond), and expert(double black diamonds).
Bro’s friends thought that I could go skiing by myself after they saw my first try in the second time.
Friend A: "It seems good."
B: "We’re gonna go."
They disappeared soon after I stood up and
check my equipment.
I just wanted to try what they taught me—keep squatting if I feel that I’m going to fall. It makes me fast but I won’t fall easily.
Then, I really outstripped them. XD
Me: "my god, my god, OH MY GOD!! wwww"
A&B: "!? Good job! www"
I think I can’t do it again anymore in my
It was really fast and scary to me. After that, I started to fall again and again. w
When I wanted to make a turn, I usually fell on sides, especially my left side due to lack of confidence. Sometimes, I even didn’t know how I fell. (Maybe I just made a roll or something like that after I fell down.) Also, I fell forward many times with my face and mouth full of snow. XD
I heard that the skis now are separated from boots can avoid hurting our ligaments. I’m not quite sure now, though.
After falling, I usually had to look for my skis and poles. They were far from me sometimes, so I have to wait for somebody’s help. XDrz
That bro’s friends wanted to bring me to
ski on the intermediate level makes me afraid until now. XD I might not survive
if they took me there. ww
下星期一要去聽Hoobastank和3 Doors Down的演唱會...算是被狼哥拖去的（炸
The ski area was closed at 4 p.m. Except
that I fell down so many times that I felt hurt, I didn’t really get injured. I’m
alive! XDHowever, I caught a cold and felt hurt for
several days. I even couldn’t change my pose easily when I was sleeping.
On the way home in the car, especially on the high way, I would feel as if I were still skiing. I know it sounds stupid, but it really made me nervous. XD When I closed my eyes, I could even see the slope.I hope that it won’t become a trauma. XDrz
The beer after skiing was good even though it was not cold. w
To tell the truth, after I finished this post in Chinese, I forgot to write in English. I was ready to post, and then It suddenly came to mind. It made me depressed for about ten minutes because I didn’t want to do it as a long article. Well, in the end, I did it. Yeah! XD
