They Are The Amateur Skiers

After the mountain view ride, it was time for the the youngsters to get ready.. in fact, they were quite excited about their first time skiing experience...with our tour guide assistance on their measurement and skiing equipment, they were finally all set to go... their first skiing in real snow!

they got style!!
slowly they "prodded" into the snow...

and awaiting for their "skiing tutors"

the tutors were the tour guides.. hahahaa....

while they were listening intently,
I was hovering nearby to capture some shots...

I noticed that most of them were youngsters...
older people like me doesn't ski, ok.....

ok, one is set to start on his own now...

here he goesssss......

another one coming along......

he looked so steady... hehehe....

fuuyohh...doesn't he look "pro?"

oooppsss...too fast.... no brakeeee.....

he was laughing so hard that he couldn't get up....

there... he is alright..eh!!!

off they ski-ed again.... never say die....

as for the youngest one...
she took no chances and did it slow...

after some falling down here and there
both of them played safe by skiing near the net....
at least it helped to break their fall... hahahaa....

  6. Why are you complaining you are not young blah blah blah!!?? Age is just a number but your heart is still so young and happy! The Korean guys ski so well without using the stick at all...down from mountain slopes. I saw them ski at night as there would be lesser people. So fun!!

  11. i'd probably not ski as well, since i can't even rollerskate on level ground. i fear injury as the joints/bones aren't as strong as they used to be.

  16. My two youngest children learned to ski (well, we live only a couple of hours from ski country here in Maine)! We have such a long winter that they figured they might as well enjoy it by learning to ski. It is very expensive though...It looks like you all had a fun experience with the skis! How did they do on the trails? Me, I would not be able to even stand up on skis! I have no desire to try it. I will stick to snowshoes.
