Ski This was my first time going skiing in 2010. I felt nauseous stepping onto skis and riding down the huge snowy mountain. When we were there I saw on the top of the snowy mountain a surge of people. Also, I felt pretty scared that I might crash and break a leg or two. Then we went onto the lift and snow started falling little by little.
Neither of us were excellent skiers so we had stuck to green and blue trails. It was truly breathtaking, skiing down the mountain, the air was fresh, even though the high altitude made breathing a bit harder. And the hundreds of pine trees had dusting of snow on each of them. My brother and I were so caught up in our surroundings we didn’t realize we had taken a wrong turn, leading us down a black diamond trail. There’s no turning back when skiing, so when my brother and I realized our mistake we had to keep moving one, albeit slowly.
On the other hand many accidents and injuries have occurred. Nobody had made it up the mountain until Sir Edmund Hillary and his partner did. This was because many people had to stop and leave. People have also died trying to get to the top of this dangerously tall mountain. To get to the top you must use oxygen tanks so that you can breathe in this high elevation.
There were 15 of us from my church all squished into two vans. While I climbed into this big van I thought it was going to be so fun to drive up a mountain, see all the appealing scenery and have the thrill of almost feeling like we're going to fall. Well…. I was wrong. Every second there was a huge bump or pothole in the road so our heads were slamming against the side of the van.
An example of when she uses pathos is as follows, “A cold, wet day on the ice blue slopes of New England, freezing in leather boots and the generation of ski clothes before microfibers was far preferable to being left out of all the fun. Miss the lunches of soggy tuna fish sandwiches and Hershey Minis? No way!” This expresses pathos/emotions because, clearly stated, it was funny. If you went skiing in the sixties you would be able to relate and reflect back on those moments and laugh. Although this is only one of many examples of pathos, it is perhaps the most obvious
Keep in mind he was a “professional” and was supposed to guide the group. Even after being seven people down the rest of the group continued to climb up the mountain. They did not turn back until the weather got worse, on their way down they were caught in a complete blizzard where visibility was almost completely gone. At this point they made the decision to make a snow cave shelter. They managed to survive the night and the next morning a student and professional mountaineer hiked for 16 hours until they found help.
Every winter sport has a big risk of hurting your head. “Helmets reduce the incidence of any head injury by 30-50%” according to Jasper Shealy, professor emeritus at the Rochester Institute of Technology in Rochester, N.Y. When you are on the mountain, you reach higher altitudes. The UV rays are much more harmful then if you were at the base. So when the sun reflects off the snow into your eyes, that 'll hurt.
It was always in the blazing heat and we would have to walk for miles to get to a sight. This was cruel and unusual punishment. As I grew older I came to understand why my dad would always take family members to the mountains. They don’t have this back home. Experiencing the mountains is not something they can do on a daily.
There, we rent sandboards (snowboards for sand) and sleds to ride down the dunes on. It’s a very different experience, because the sand is smoldering hot, but the air is usually a brisk 40 to 50 degrees. So while your feet are melting your nose is freezing. To me, I think that one of the main qualities of a fun tradition like mine has been influenced by my love of the northern states and mountains, it has to be cold. For me, the cold just makes everything better, like how cherries and whipped cream seem to make ice cream better.
In the news article “Ranger Killed During Rescue Of Climbers on Mt. Rainier”, a ranger was killed in trying to rescue climbers. This just is sad because if they wouldn’t have gone climbing in the first place the ranger wouldn’t have died. In the informational text “Why Everest”, it says “Not everyone manages to complete the climb, and some of these people pay with their lives. There have been over 230 deaths on this mountain.” This sentence just shows that people shouldn 't take life taking
