Personal Narrative: Ski Theft

Good Essays
After being at school for what seemed like forever, I put on my boots and headed to the ski lift as I looked at the snow glow in the cold February sun. As I waited in line, John was grabbing ice balls the size of my hand, then throwing them at my back. Without anything to throw back him, I felt as helpless as an amputee in a war-zone.

I knew my skis were not going to come out of snow. Then, I saw a Ski Patrol Officer on the ski lift stare with intrigue at me. Suddenly, loud sirens were beginning to blast across the entire ski-area. Then, I looked up and saw a barrage of Ski Patrol rush towards me. They pulled out a First Aid Kit preparing for the worst.

The trees marked each trial with the amazing scent of pine that would invade your nose. I never understood how snowboarding worked just that it took me from point to point fast. After many exhilarating runs down with my family, I decided that I should separate and go to the terrain park where all the jumps and rails were.…
