Learning to Ski: DMC Style
In preparation for our annual DMSki trip, a small group of us Denver DMCers decided to head up to Keystone to get our ski on. Well, the experienced skiers did that: I simply tried to stay upright and on the mountain for my first time ever skiing.
Otto, Jimmy and Jimmy’s fiancé Melissa were great instructors and spent half the day trying to teach me how to stop, turn, fall and crash with the greatest success. I definitely did more of the latter as I bailed from a standing to a prone position time and again. More often than not, I scared myself into thinking I was going to go careening off the mountain at what I perceived to be lightning fast speed. I’d have to say that as a Midwestern flatlander, the sight of steep inclines covered in snow and ice was by far one of the most petrifying experiences of my life.
But I made it out alive and with enough energy to head to Beau Jos afterward: a Colorado pizza joint famous for its thick-ish thin crust that guests slather in honey.
We made it back to Denver by 8pm and I promptly fell asleep on my couch – still dressed in my ski clothing (i.e. bike clothing because I didn’t actually own ski gear) – to wake up at 8am the next morning utterly bruised, battered, sore and excited for the next round!
