First Time Skiing @SnowWorld

I’ve arranged a team event for our colleagues, we went indoor skiing @SnowWorld . We were with a group of 19 , and some of them without skiing experience. Including me…

First it was a struggle for me to get in the elevator, I still have sore arms of pulling myself upstairs and gliding away…

So, I stood on the hill searching for my colleagues to get some instructions and then I thought… Well, I just go down skiing #GewoonGaan. The first seconds I experienced freedom. Then I got more speed and I panicked, because I didn’t know how to stop or reduce the speed. I experienced it like I went faster than my car. The only option that came in mind was to scream out loud that I was coming, so that the people on the hill were warned. When I saw the boards coming closer, I decided to lower myself and just hang in there and try to sit on the ground. When I managed this I let myself fall and laid there down at the bottom of the hill exhausted and thrilled. I survived my first time skiing without harming anyone or myself. 🙂

My legs were shaking….adrenalin kicked in. I stood up, got some instructions and repeated to slide of the hill many times, without falling..!
