A Blast at Hoodoo!

By Shane (grade 5)

It is snowing a lot this year.  That is good because we can ski and have fun. It covers the dirt, rocks and stumps.  If there is powder it is soft when we crash.  If there is not enough snow, Hoodoo can't open the runs. With lots of snow we can make snowpeople and have snowball fights.  Lots of snow makes skiing fun.

In order to ski you need a helmet, skies, jacket, boots, snow pants, extra layers, gloves, and goggles. Equipment keeps you safe, for example, the skies can pop off your boots if you crash, so you don’t go down with your skies.

Skiing is fun because we get to go really fast. Some of us get to go through the trees and that is really challenging.  We can jump up in the air which is scary, but lots of fun.  When I ski I am with my friends and it keeps me healthy.

Lunch time is when we refuel our bodies and take a big rest.  I like lunch so I can talk with my friends and share stories of skiing. Lunch time is a good time to change wet clothes into dry clean clothes, and go to the bathroom, because there are NO bathrooms on the mountain! It is really important to stay hydrated and drink lots of water too.

Know your limits on the slopes, so you don’t get hurt. If you're a beginner then stay on the beginner runs, don’t go on the black diamonds. Always ski with a friend, so if you do get hurt, they can go get help from ski patrol. Its is important to know skier etiquette, so you don’t hurt another skier. I researched about skier’s etiquette online and learned about it from an article on Skiing is a blast, so stay safe and keep it a blast!
