Last Monday (there was no school, because it was between the two semester, the second one started on tuesday) i went skiing with the sister of my hostmom and her two sons...
We went up Schweitzer (http://www.schweitzer.com/, it's a ski ressort next to Sagle) at like 8.30 in the morning. I bought a package for 65 $ (about 44 Euro) which include gear rental (skis, boots and poles (=Stoecke)) a lift ticket and an 1 to 2 hours lesson. I was lucky and the only person in the lesson so it was kind of private but i paid for a public one.
So, when we rented my stuff there was still about an hour left till the beginning of my lesson. Therefore Lindy (my hostmum's sister showed me some basics and we went down the bunny hill...it was a bit odd, but except of controling speed it went well.
After this run we went down Midway which is a longer and steeper slope...it was hard, i often fell down and lost my skis several times.
After this downhill i had my lesson. My teacher was very nice and i learned a lot, above all controling speed
After the lesson and lunch, i went with jerry (the son of Lindy -> my cousin) another few times midway down until we departed at like 3 o'clock.
Yeah, that was my first amazing day on skis.
