Someone says, “Are you ok?” I nod yes and they ski away. I look like Frosty the Snowman coming out of a blizzard in a ski parka. I have learned that sometimes you have to risk getting yourself hurt to save other people from harm. However, I also learned that it is really fun to fly through the air on my snowboard. Avoiding those skiers has allowed me to experience something I would have never done otherwise.
But the meain seosan when all people would deffinetly get there is winter because many peole are passsioaned about skiing and snowboarding or just having a ejoyable time with their families. Do you skii or snowboard? One of my very very passionable thing to do is snowboarding. Long time ago when I didn’t how to snowboard I would just look there and think about the montion and the coldness that people get while they skii down the mountain. Always wanted to try.
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.
Erik Weihenmayer wrote the story “Everest” about reaching the summit of Mount Everest as a blind person. Weihenmayer has taken many risks of climbing mountains without one of the most important senses, his eyesight. In these two stories, they talk about the struggles of climbing mountains, but also the triumph of reaching their goals. In “The Devils Thumb” by Jon Krakaeur, the perspective is from the view point of a solo climber. In the story it says, “Writing these words more than a dozen years later, it’s no longer entirely clear just how I thought soloing the Devils Thumb would transform my life” (157).
The pilot gave him a very brief flying lesson. Suddenly, the pilot seemed to be suffering pain in his shoulder, arm, and stomach. At first Brian did not think it is very serious, but after the pilot began jerking in his seat it became clear that he had a heart attack. Brian did not know what to do and eventually heart stoped. Brian was forced to take over the controls, but finally the plane crashed into a lake in the Canadian woods, where Brian is stranded.
My First Time Snowboarding If you have ever seen the snowboarding part of the X-Games or the U.S Olympic Snowboarding team, you know how good they are. But their first time snowboarding wasn’t as bad as mine. I was in the sixth grade when I first started snowboarding. The middle school I went to had a ski and snowboard club that went to a nearby ski hill every Friday. And on that Friday was my first time.
But, they did not make it to their game. In the book, Miracle in the Andes, Nando Parrado is a hero because he saves others lives, he survives 72 days in the Andes, and he has faith in God. Nando was a hero in many ways. Roy, Nando’s friend was struggling as they were climbing up the mountain. Nando was hitting him and calling him bad words, so that Roy would get up.
Powder by Tobias Wolff Tobias Wolff’s, “Powder,” is about a father that attempts to win back his family by taking his son Tobias on a ski trip. The audience can relate to this if they have ever had any family issues, which many would likely have. In the story, the father risks driving his family through the snow and ice to go skiing with them. This is symbolic to represent the dedication he feels towards his family and how he desperately wants to keep them in-tact. Without this symbolism in the story, the story would not be as effective because it wouldn’t show the audience the key elements they need to fully understand it.
I take a deep breath my lip quivering as the wind blows on the last week of winter vacation. My family decided to go on a road trip up to Big Bear. We decided to stay the whole week. It was a snowy beautiful drive up the mountain. We stayed up in our cabin and I brought one of my friends up with me.
He started yelling at my coach asking why he made me run even though I was limping. Meanwhile, I was sitting on the bleachers with my foot aching in pain. Later, about a few days, I went to the doctor for an x-ray on my foot. They said I had a fracture in the fifth
Slowly the sun began to go lower and we knew that it wouldn’t be safe to be atop the mountain at sunrise because of lightning, so we began to hike back down the mountain. On the way down our heads were held a little higher and our pace a little slower because we felt good about our accomplishment and what it meant to
I am a part of the Tampa Bay Water Ski Show Team; a non-profit organization which puts on free water ski shows each Saturday. The show includes acts such as pyramid, ballet, swivel, doubles, trios, barefoot, wrap, jump and wakeboard. I have been involved with the team for four years and my whole family is a part as well. The team has participated in many tournaments, and has received 1st place for 13 consecutive years. I enjoy taking part in the team because we get taught how to ski and we also learn teamwork.
