Schwoop Schwoop

In four days I leave for the white slopes of Crested Butte, CO. I'm somewhere between excited and nervous. See I've been skiing five times so you would think that I'm a fairly decent skier. And I am but it took some work to get there . . . oh about three years biding my time in ski school. I am what you call "accident prone", "clumsy", "uncoordinated", and any other adjectives to describe someone who has taken a ride DOWN the ski lift, hitched a ride with ski patrol after being stranded on the side or a run, and slid down an entire run on her bum.

Luckily the fifth time was the charm (oh I can't do it in just three, nope, that would be too predictable) and I had the best year of skiing, until the blizzard that is. See I had the perfect day of skiing our second day on the mountain: no fear, great speed and agility, I ROCKED the mountain. Then the blizzard struck before our third day of skiing and I messed up my knee going down a run with snow up to my thighs.

So I'm hoping after a 4 year break that I'll be able to pick it back up.

The idea of skiing terrifies me, but I think it would be fun if I could get the hang of it. I hope you do well!

I came from "don't call me Veronica."

Haha! You went to Crusted Butt! :P

My brother is a ski patrol junkie up in Keystone, CO. I just love how he's somehow managed to turn skiing into a post college career.
