First Ski Of The Season

Snow! It came fast and unexpected, leaving me without a choice. I wanted to go ski! Not only was it one of the earliest I’ve ever skied, but the conditions were perfect for a first time ski. While my friends back home in Switzerland have to ski on an icy and windy glacier track, I could ski on a 2km loop at Auburn Ski Club, always under the bright California sun. The feeling of having “real” skis under my feet cam quickly back, and after some technique drills I was ready to fly over the Snow! I realized how much I missed skiing and it got me stoked for the upcoming season!
