    Two Surprisingly Different Types of Skiing Thump! That is the sound of my body hitting the ground during my first time snow skiing. Splash! That is the sound of my body hitting the water over and over again as I am trying to learn how to water ski for the first time. I have recently had the privilege to be able to experience both water skiing and snow skiing. I was able to learn how to water ski for the first time this last summer; I went snow skiing for the first time this winter. Even though they have similar names, they are each unique and different from each other. There was definitely a learning curve for both of these activities as I started as a beginner. However, I had a tremendous amount of fun learning how to do these two activities, and I would recommend to everyone to try these activities. They both have their challenges and enjoyable aspects.

    Me. Colorado. Mountains. Skiing. 12,510 feet. Nothing brings more enthusiasm than knowing you’re about to be carried over two miles in elevation by a rickety bench hanging from a cable, only to slide all the way down on a couple narrow strips of plastic. The entire experience of skiing creates an exhilarating sense of adrenaline beginning with the chair lift, standing at the top, and the trip down. At the base of the hill, I look up at the immensity before me. With my skis clicked in, my…

    • 4 Pages

    A turning point is something that changes either your character (who you are), how you live your life, or both. Downhill skiing has been a turning point for me in my life. To truly understand the joy of skiing, you must feel the connections to everything around you. From your body to the skis, from the skis to the snow and ice, from the icy snow to the ground, you must feel and connect through all of it. That is when you can finally understand the freedom gliding through and on the snow brings.…

    We loved to ski, my friends and I. Every Thursday was a chance to escape into the ski hill and leave all of our problems at the door of the ski lodge. Ski club was an essential part of our lives in the winter. There was no one telling us we couldn’t eat a cookie and fries for dinner. No one telling us we can’t scream and yelp with excitement like we did on the ski hill. My friends and I were known to be the last ones on the bus, and this week would be no exception. We had just finished dinner,…
