A Weekend Spent Skiing
My first time skiing at Stowe
I got picked up from school and drove directly to my family house in NewHampshire, during the ride my brain was filled with thoughts of skiing in fresh powder through the woods at Stowe mountain. On Saturday morning I woke up very early, it was sometime around 7am and I was so tired and had absolutely zero motivation to ski at the moment. The ride over to Mount Sunapee woke me up and soon enough, I was cruising down a GS course on the Lynx trail with my friends. During the many chairlift rides up the mountain I took, there was a lot of conversation about all the snow we are getting this weekend. I’m not sure exactly how much, but I heard from multiple people different stories about how we are getting 8-12 or 18 inches of snow; I knew this weekend was going to be a fun one. After skiing we took a fairly long drive to Stowe. We arrived at the place we were staying and I was surprised at how cozy and nice it was. That night we sat by the fire, talked, and watched the snow fall outside. Sunday was game time, for the Pats and for me. I walked out the door and skied down to the chairlift using a little path from the place we stayed to the trails. It turns out that the chairlift we were right next to was the longest and slowest chairlift I had ever been on, it took a long time. Some time had passed and I had some time to get back into the powder skiing groove. It was me, my uncle, and my brother and we got off one of the chairlifts and went staight down into a double black diamond called Goat (I think that is wat it was called). It was super fun, I loved skiing through the woods especially when the snow is up to my knees. We took many more runs after that and had one slight problem during the trip, my goggles kept icing up every now and then, which also occurred to other people in my group, so I had to stop and clear them up every once and a while. That day of skiing was definitely the highlight of my weekend and I had so much fun at Stowe, I hope I get to go back to Stowe some time soon because the skiing was great. Also, another bit of information that I thought would be necessary to share; THE PATS ARE GOING TO THE SUPER BOWL!!!!
