Today was so nice out, and the sun was just waiting for me. Our house is really close to the edge of town, so I can just walk there in about 3 minutes. Then I skied to the golf course where I found ski tracks...yippee!!! It was all great until I tried to ski up a hill. That was no good because I'd get half way up and then just slide backwards until I was at the bottom. Don't think huge hill, think like rabbit hill. Think like gopher hill. I'm a newbie. I finally went around the hills. And I only fell twice today! The snow was quite soft and seemed more slick then the last time I went out. It meant I could ski faster, but it also meant that I could lose control faster too.
