Things you never want to hear your ski instructor say


"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...

  1. Okay, I am now even more scared of learning how to ski than I was before. Clumsy girls shouldn't go up mountains - that's my motto! :P But I'm glad you (are less clumsy than I am and) had a good time!

  3. Also should have added, "Never eat Yellow Snow." ha ha!

  4. Jenny - Oh, don't be scared - usually it's a lot of fun as long as your ski instructor doesn't make a mistake! If I can do it, anyone can. :-)

    Ladytink - We did have a lot of fun. Aside from that one trail! Yikes.

    VA Gal - Ick, you are right! :-)
