Victory on the Slopes
Hidden Valley was a new experience for me. I had never been skiing before. When we first got to Hidden Valley we watched a safety video. I payed close attention because it was my first time. When we finally got to the locker room I grabbed my size boots and they were broken so I went back to get new one’s that weren't broken. By the time I got back and got in line to get my ski’s the line was very long. By the time I finally got my ski’s some people were done with ski school.
I was super scared when I got on the snow. But after a couple of minutes I realized hey I’m not that bad at this. After that I whizzed through ski school until it was time for lunch.
Lunch was very small. We got a piece of pizza and the choice of a drink with baby carrots. I thought I was going to starve but thankfully my mom packed me a snack if I got hungry.
When I was done with lunch I went back on the slopes. I couldn’t believe it I was done with ski school. I went to the little lift to get practice going on the lift. I am scared of heights so even though it wasn’t that high I was still really scared. After one or two times I started to get the hang of it. I started to go to the rope tow. There was a super long line because everyone kept falling. I did that a couple of times and then I went on the mini lift to get some practice before I went on the big lift. I did that a lot and before I knew it all the schools had to leave. It was just me and my dad having fun skiing. My dad took me on the giant lift and I was super scared. I am afraid of heights and the lift kept stopping.When we got to the top I decided to go on the less steep hill to start because it was my first time skiing. I tried to pizza stop on my way down like the people at ski school taught us but it wasn’t stopping me. I was going as fast as a rocket and I couldn’t stop finally the pizza stop slowed me down enough to where I could just fall back and I wouldn’t hurt myself. After that my dad taught me how to hockey stop I went on the little lift some more to practice. My dad told me I could go down one more hill and then we would have to leave. I chose the big hill. I started out really slow but then I went down like a pro using my new knowledge on how to hockey stop. We left when I got down the hill. That was the best field trip ever! I will never forget how much fun I had.
