SkiMangoJazz (and his lovely SO) met up apres ski with skier_j and I at Berkshire East on Sunday and we chatted for a bit. There were no injuries and everyone was smiling and happy to finally meet! Here we are under the BE banner......me, SMJ and skier_j.
It was a hero snow day and we skied every trail that was open. I surprised myself by skiing Flying Cloud and Minnie Dole, which have always looked steep to me (they are, really). I'm still a bit spooked about being on skis, but it's getting much better as my skills return.
Here's me halfway down Flying Cloud and happy to be off the steep part. It was a beautiful view!
In this short video, Kee Tov (former Epic member and level II instructor) was trying to get me to relax (hahaha) and round my turns on Exhibition. I'm still stemming and protecting my legs and feet, and I don't point my jacket down the hill. I'm working on that.
I have a long way to go. I know what a good skier looks like, I just can't mimic it.........yet. I have new skis that are much more stable than my old ones, and it's making a difference. Practice, that's what I need right now.
