I’ve Fallen – But I Can Get Up!

  1. I use to work at a ski hill for the free skiing. The irony in that was I was so sick of the place I never skied there. The pizza pose is called the snowplough here, obviously kids here are more familiar with those 😉 were you sore the next day? It’s more thrilling when you conquer something new than when you try and give up. Well done! Enjoy your new found winter hobby 🙂

  2. Good job, Lisa! I have never attempted to ski … scaredy cat to the max! Now, at 53 with two hip replacements, no way will I attempt to learn. I think, perhaps, that I will learn to play the piano this year, which may be a bit easier on my bones 🙂 Maybe I will be able to sit in the ski lodge by the fireplace, sip some red wine, and play a tune on the piano while you ski your heart out next year!

    Congrats, Lisa! 🙂 So proud of you for conquering your fears — and I love the attitude you went-in with. Awesome!

    I wanna do it, I wanna do it! That sounds so exhilarating… My aunt owns a mountain house on Beech mtn which is on the other side of Banner Elk. Some of the most beautiful country around.

    • How cool! We were debating between the two places but decided to go with Sugar since Brian had been there before. It is stunning! This was my first time in that particular corner of the state but it won’t be my last…so please share those places to visit! We plan on making the skiing trip an annual tradition and I’m also prioritizing the area for our next (warmer weather!) camping trip.

    […] I’m not more than familiar with that powerless and incapacitated feeling when fear moves in. I’ve written about learning how to ski and overcome my apprehension of downhills. I’ve had similar experiences with biking (go ahead and laugh – I can zip line without […]
