As I mentioned, last weekend we went to Vipiteno Italy for ski. I haven’t ski for more than 6-7 years and my last ski experience was amazing (also with Mara). I can’t remember falling down or any pain, so I was quite excited to ski again. But this time the thing went different. The ski resort is great, the trails well maintained, not too many people and all good skiers. The only problem was that there were only intermediate trails and for someone who haven’t ski for years wasn’t very appropriate. But I didn’t mind before my first big fall in a steep slope where I couldn’t put my ski shoes back!!! After the first fall, I got a little bit scared but was still enjoying. Unfortunately on my way down to the mountain, the trail was much longer and steeper. In addition to that, I was tired. That bad combination resulted in a BIG FALL and I hit my head! 😯 PANICKED and BLOCKED!!! I didn’t want to ski more but it was only half the trail and walking down was dangerous. Thank to Mara and Gunther who patiently waited me (I was taking a break every 30 sec) and encouraging me to try over and over again. After falling down few times more I finished the trail and the whole mountain. But I won’t lie you, I haven’t been that scared for a long time!!! I was disappointed with my performance and how chicken I was. But sometimes we have to accept the fact that we can’t do everything perfect and all the time! I had great time with my friends and that was the most important thing.
The second day was a little bit better, I did the whole mountain again and fell down only once. I could enjoy a little more but still terrified to gain speed. So I went VERY SLOWLY!!! At the end, I was proud of myself. Come on! I haven’t ski for a long time and that’s quite an accomplishment to ski the whole mountain in intermediate trail! 😀 The price? I have pain all over my body!!! 👿
Food on the mountain was INCREDIBLE!!! Stay tune! 😀
Q: Do you ski? Have you ever got blocked or panicked?
