I love...Skiing

Mary's Nipple Winter 2011

I'm a child of winter. Right when I think I can't learn to love this sport anymore, I find something new to try and my love grows more...if that's even possible :) I learned to ski at 3 years of age when my Dad would take me up to   the ski hill on week nights and teach me how to 'french fry' and 'pizza'.  I've been through everything from ski schools, private lessons,  lots of crashing and feeling like I had frost bite on every inch of my body, to learning how to ski off cliffs, ski in chest deep powder{a personal favorite} and hiking in the back-country.   Thanks to my Mom and Dad who had the ambition to teach their own great love for skiing to their young children- I'm sure it wasn't an easy task.  And thanks to my new and old friends who love skiing just as much as I do!  It wouldn't be quite as fun if you weren't there to push my comfort zones, teach me tricks, and ski every bluebird, icy, foggy and powder day of the season! I'm excited for more wonderful memories on the ski hill.

Here's to hoping all my kids will love sking as much as I do.

I must say that you really have a heart for extreme sports like skiing, Sarah! Imagine, you started skiing when you were three years old. Isn’t that great!? By the way, that training camp on the second photo is indeed challenging but it can be dangerous. :O :D Take care!
