"Uh-oh. The ski report said this one was groomed last night."
"I think we'd better take our skis off and walk over to that trail over there."
"Hmmm...there's not much snow on this trail. But it's the only way down." [N.B. It's a double diamond.]
"Looks like we're in for a little adventure here."
"Let's review what we do when we encounter icy patches."
"Try to avoid the rocks and grass that are sticking up."
We survived. I didn't even fall down! (Except mentally, every time I looked at what was coming up next.) But what a hair-raising experience. I'm starting to miss my nice, safe job at the library...
