Whistler

 I went skiing at Whistler on the weekend. It was so much fun! 

Hannah and Luke, two of my housemates, invited me to go up there with them and another mate of theirs, UK Dan (as opposed to Dan the Housemate) on Saturday. 

I would like to learn to snowboard, but at present time I can not snowboard for the life of me (never tried), but I can ski, so skiing it was. I went and bought some snow gear on Friday (end of the season, got it really cheap!) and woke up super early on Saturday morning to leave. 

Had a really good day. The last time I skied was way back in 2005 when I went up to Mt Buller for the day with uni. So it's been almost 5 years. So I wasn't feeling all that confident, so I left the boys (Hannah wasn't skiing, she just came along for the ride) and stuck to the easy runs for the morning while I got my confidence back. Was being super careful as well, and only fell down once (when I was on my way back down to the village for lunch and thinking 'sweet i haven't crashed!' So of course, then I smashed and really hurt my thumb, but oh well. 

After lunch the boys made me go with them up to the top of the mountain. Oh my god, the views were amazing!!! It was such a clear day, it was soooo beautiful! I don't think my camera did it justice at all. Not that I can really tell, I still haven't been able to upload any of my photos grr. 

That afternoon I stacked sooooo many times. It was getting a little ridiculous. I was fine on the green ones, but Dan made me go down a blue run and I was stacking every couple of minutes. He gave me some good tips though, so I was getting better. I just need better control. More practice. At one point I deliberately  fell over as I was starting to ski down a very steep bit backwards. I didn't really want to be doing that... 

But anyway despite all the crashes and bruises I had a very fun day!!
