    Ski Lodge Research Paper

    • 995 Words
    • 4 Pages

    I began to make my way out of the ski lodge. My family and I had just finished eating lunch in the ski lodge and I was getting ready to hit the last few slopes before I called it a day. It had been many years since I had last spent time in Colorado, my old home. I was ecstatic I had the opportunity to visit during the winter so I could once again experience one of my favorite activities of skiing. Shortly after attending my family reunion, my family made their way up to Monarch Mountain to spend the day skiing. I was more than happy to have gotten to see all of my relatives, whom I only get to see once or twice a year. During the remaining fifteen minutes before closing time, most of my family members stayed to relax in the ski lodge. I had…

    After being at school for seven hours, 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 the line, John was grabbing ice balls the size of my hand, while attempting to throw them at my back. As Jack left his station, the smell of weed stenched across the entire ski area. Not even caring about looking at my lift ticket,I easily got on the lift. I tried to pick up a snow ball as the lift came up and pushed me on its cold, rusty…

    I nervously walked to the ski lifts with my cousins in a heavy red coat and black gloves. When I tried breathing, a cloud of white came out. I kept trying to calm my fired up nerves with breathing techniques. Try as I might, I couldn’t get my nerves to calm down. It was like my nerves were on fire and that fire couldn’t be put out. When we finally got to the ski lifts, my legs suddenly felt as if they had been weighed down. The closer the ski lift came, the heavier my legs were. I started to…

    I have always loved to be involved with nature. When I was little, I would never come out of my tree house. It was my home away from home. There has always been a deep connection between us more then anything else I cared about. As much as I loved nature though, I never seemed to give back or take in the real meaning it beholds. Nature holds many secrets and it takes an individual to investigate to find out. If you do not stop once in awhile, you will never see that opportunity that faces you.…

    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. Even though Jack was next to me checking my ticket, he did not seem to care that someone was throwing ice balls at me. He didn’t even care to look at my lift…

    Ski Trip to Vermont My friends and I consider ourselves to be very spontaneous and adventurous. It was one cold week in February of 2016, when a group of about 6 of my friends (including me) all decided that we wanted to go to Vermont for the weekend to ski and snow tube. Considering this would be my first trip with no parental guidance at all, I was apprehensive about asking my mom. On the way to drop me off after school one day, my best friend Tony told me to tell her that he was going too…

    “Woo Hoo” I yelled at the top of my lungs. I could feel the wind rushing against my face, like a cold river of air. I felt like how a cheetah feels when it is running at top speed. I felt fast, careless, and free. I also felt very frigid. As I reached the bottom of the slope, I waited for myself to slow down. I didn’t know how to do that cool thing with my skis where I twist sideways so I stop and kick up snow. I had just finished going down my favorite ski trail, Skycoaster. I go to Hunt…
