This past weekend I had my first ski lesson. It was at Cardrona near Wanaka. The weather was cold but nice. Sometimes it was icy. I went down the Magic Carpet run and learned how to turn. I really liked throwing snowballs afterwards at my dad. I can’t wait to have another snowball fight again

This year I went on the school ski trip. It was my first time and I was nervous and excited. Learning was really easy, once you know how to stop, that is because I just kept falling into a wall. After my lesson I went off and did some skiing. I fell over a few times but I kept trying and eventually I skied down the mountain without falling over (Go ME!). Skiing was heaps of fun and I can't wait to do it next year. So if you have wanted to give it a go, then come along on the school trip for next year. It is great fun and there are amazing views to see.
