First Skiing Trip

I love downhill skiing. I have been down hill skiing since I was 8 years old. There’s nothing like it... the smell of the outdoors, the quiet swishing sound of your skis turning in the snow, the beautiful scenery... and best of all, no electronics! It’s beautiful, serene and just gives me an overall feeling of peace. So this year, my husband Erik and I, decided it was time to get our 5-year old son, Blake, started on skiing! We went out for a family trip to the NC mountains for the best Bunny Slopes the state had to offer! My brother and sister- in-law joined us with my 6-year old niece and my 4-year old nephew. Let me tell you, there is nothing in this world that Blakey likes more than spending time with his cousins! As you can imagine, there was not much sleep with the 3 little ones in one house! The mountain views were breathtaking. Most

of the snow had melted away after those few warm days we had, but the kids didn’t seem to notice. By the end of the day they all had successfully gotten on and off the “Magic Carpet” ride up the bunny hill, and had skied — at least part of it — by themselves. When we packed them back into the truck there were no broken bones, no bloody noses and 3 big smiles so we considered it a “Win”. Best of all, Erik and I got to see the magical look on Blake’s face after he finally skied without help. All you parents and grandparents know what I mean... the kind of prideful smile that only comes after they know they did something hard by themselves. That right there was worth the 4 hour drive. I am already looking forward to the next time I get to share one of my favorite activities with him! - Sara Morrison, PT, Owner
