I can still remember the first time I went downhill skiing It was a cold and dry November day It hadnt been snowing much at the time so most of the snow on the hills was that slick jet blown artificial-icepseudo-snow Not exactly what a first timer likes to start onMy friend Michael had been trying to talk me into going on a skiing trip with him and the local Boy Scout troop for some time I was afraid at first I had heard many over-exaggerated stories from people who had claimed foul play on the part of gravity while skiing So naturally I was a bit skeptical but Michael assured me that the best way to learn was to just go all out and try my luck on one of the many intermediate slopes At the time it had sounded reasonable so I did Ive heard it said before Its easier said than done Whoever coined that one knew what he was talking about The first couple of hills I only rolled head over heels down After that I graduated to skidding down on my backside and then on to what could pass for actually skiing It was great flying over the packed snow fighting for balance and dodging trees It was enough to pump your heart straight through your ribcage Michael had told me over and over again that I had to be ready for the tricky spots or Id be telling a nurse that the light at the end of the tunnel is an over-exaggeration Nevertheless I got cocky and decided that I could try a black diamond slope Michael had been trying to teach me to take sharper shorter turns and to crouch down to maximize speed Now to an experienced skier these can be handy skills but to a novice they end up being just one more thing to think about while going 40 MPH I tried to crouch down
