I went because we were going to go snowboarding. When we got all our stuff together, we then left the hotel and proceeded to the car. My stomach was growling, so we passed by Tim Hortons, and got a few donuts for me and the family. We finally were on our way to Cypress. As me and my family made our way up Cypress Mountain, we encountered a lot of traffic on the way.
We went back out to the slopes, and started off with some longer black diamond run, for fun. The cold mountain wind, and the sound of the board hitting the snow, all felt so good. It wasn't too long till we all went back onto the terrain park, we all took turns showing of trick to each other, all trying to one up one another. We would all hit 360’s, spread eagles, and some classic’s. I was at the top of the run and Nate called up to me “hit a 540”.
The time I spent with my cousins and brother would be a trip that I won’t forget my whole life. A family vacation that I was very excited for was my trip to Jackson Hole Wyoming. This was one of the most anticipated vacations I had, we were going to stay for a week from Christmas to New Year’s eve. My family and I really enjoy skiing and when the chance to go on this trip happened, I remember begging my dad for us to go with my cousins. It was going to be the greatest trip that I would ever experience in my life.
Once, I was a little snowflake on top of a mountain. Life was good on Aspen Mountain with the exception of being trampled by skiers. Until one day when a skier wipes out on top of me. As he was falling, Me and my brothers were swept into the man's jacket. Most of my brothers tumbled out as the man stumbled for his Ski poles but I was stuck.
“Now you shall not receive any more tribute from me.” “Do you know who you are dealing with. I am Pogoda, the god of weather. I can make you not be able to grow any crops ever again,” exclaimed Pogoda. “How do you propose that you do that, it is not like you can make something fall from the sky and stay until it melts away,” said Bartholomew. “Actually, that is exactly what I am going to do, and it will be called snow,” stated Pogoda.
In fact, oxygen deprivation is one of the worst kind of torture thinkable. Scientific studies show that continued oxygen deprivation results in coma, seizures, and increased heartbeat. Not to mention, 26,247 feet up is the Death Zone where most of the climbers die due to the majority of their oxygen supply being cut off. In addition, people who stay in the Death Zone for too long tend to have the deterioration of bodily functions, lose consciousness, and, ultimately, climbers die due to oxygen deprivation. Also, cerebral hypoxia caused by oxygen deprivation can cause temporary memory loss, difficulty paying attention,
Awkward and clumsy. This is how 10 year old me was described. Afraid of heights, failing and falling and here I was, standing on a high balance board, staring into a deep foam pit. When my aunt, Nadine, a gymnast teacher came for a visit, I should have expected that she would want to go to a gym. Driving to the gym with my Aunt, Uncle, and cousin, I confessed that I didn 't know how to do a frontflip.
“How, if possible, can I pass Charybdis or fight of Scylla when she raids my crew?” (930). Like Odysseus, I manifested a determination when it came to achieving a new PR in cross country. I worked harder in practice, started eating healthier, and fought against the pain and urge to walk at the following meet. My determination paid off because I knocked off around two minutes off of my previous PR. Along with achieving a new PR, I demonstrated determination when I wanted to start a snowmobiling youth program in the state of Iowa.
Awsam Bouabid There I was out in the cold, in the middle of January, at 6:00 AM. I had put my skis in the bus and was waiting for Mr. Mud to get on the bus and do a roll call. It was the third race of the season, but it would be my first time actually racing. Once, Mr. Mud was done, we left Simsbury High School, and headed to some far off place to ski. When we arrived at out skiing destination, we got our belongings out of the bus, settled in at the lodge, and began practicing.
In middle school, the graduating eighth grade class from my school attended Gradventure at Universal Studios. I had gone through three years of middle school and made a ton of friends. I was happy to be going to Universal for the first time ever with my best friends and favorite teachers. Of course, I had high hopes for the famous park – The Wizarding World of Harry Potter, Jurassic Park, Marvel’s Superhero Island and The Mummy – each stemmed from famous movies and books which left me excited. That day was a Friday.
