After a pretty successful first night at skiing the previous night, I was pumped for an exciting day of skiing. I started by catching a chairlift to the summit and trying out the green run. Unfortunately, I wasn’t as prepared as I thought I was. I struggled to control my speed while skiing down slopes, consequently to stop myself from hitting a tree or someone and severely injuring myself, I had to fall straight down on the hard snow – very painful! Speeding down slopes without much control was not only potentially dangerous but almighty scary and painful. So after finishing the green run an hour later I felt miserable, wet and sore, and headed to the pub for lunch.
I sat in the pub for a couple of hours – not drinking! – but defrosting and trying to figure out what I was doing wrong and how to solve it. After using trusty Google to search for advice for skiing correctly and hitting the bunny run to tweak my technique, I felt I was more prepared for my next ski run.
That night, the whole MISN group had a pre-drinks party in one of the chalets and then we bussed back to the chateau at the base of the mountain to go clubbing. The chateau had been converted into a club with a DJ, drinks and even a mini-race track! I had a great night partying with my new friends!
