As me and my family made our way up Cypress Mountain, we encountered a lot of traffic on the way. Many families wanted to go snowboarding today since, it was the day after Christmas. So the parking lot was filled, and I assumed that the mountain and lodge would be packed as well. As we then proceeded to find parking, it was a hassle, like I stated before it was very busy because many people wanted to go skiing or snowboarding. We

An hour or so before my race, a friend offered me some help with my skiing. Once again, I went outside and was practicing, but this time with help. I had some trouble even with help. I slipped, couldn’t slow myself down, and I actually nearly ran into somebody, but I eventually got the hang of it. Later on, my race began, and I was filled with anxiety.
We were ready to climb the Snow Bird mountain. We were anxiously waiting for the next morning to come and we were so tired from our trip that we almost instantly knocked out and wanted to be rested for the big day ahead of us tomorrow. When we woke up we grabbed breakfast and got dressed and rushed to the mountain to try to be on the first lift up to the top. The breakfast we had was smelling of syrup and it was such a strong scent. When we arrived it was very crowded at the base of the mountain.
In doing so he lost the lives of some of his friends, and has to live with the decision that he made. Jon starts out in the beginning of the book describing how he wants to climb Mount Everest. Many people have climbed simply,” Because it is there” (Mallory, 15). George Leigh Mallory made that comment after being asked by a newspaper reporter, why he wanted to climb. Jon describes climbing as a culture characterized by intense competition.
It was the first good snow of the season, and my friends and I were up with the sun. Our cabin was now full of the smell of coffee brewing, bacon sizzling, and the fresh mountain air. I sat on the lazy boy recliner and checked the snow and weather reports, “all clear!” I shouted to my friends, Nate and Charles, who were just finishing up breakfast. We were all fulfilled with eagerness to get to the slopes. It felt like forever since the last snowboarding season.
Similarly to how snow falls and then eventually melts away, the love that grew within the couple eventually melted away as well. In the last few remarks of the story, a snowplow is mentioned, “the snowplow that seems always to be there, scraping snow off” (109). Beattie chooses to end the story with the final symbol of snow once again as if to say the love was scrapped away, leaving behind nothing— true
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.
When Leper is the first to seriously enlist in the war it comes to a shock to all of the boys at Devon: “‘I’m going to enlist in these ski troops,’… Threats to enlist that winter were always declaimed like Blinker’s, with a grinding of back teeth and a flashing of eyes; I had already heard plenty of them. But only Leper’s was serious” (66). Before Leper actually went off to war, the war seemed to be a far off and unrealistic to the boys. The idea of enlisting was never considered a reality. They had “heard plenty of” young boys flaunting their choice but they were empty threats.
We waited for a signal to drop in, half of us with skis, the other half with snowboards. I was never fond of snowboards, or the people who snowboarded. They all appeared rather arrogant, like they owned the slopes we shared. Rock Garden was never meant for young children to use, it was a complicated run close to the edge of a cliff. It wrapped itself round a centre point, like an artist’s hand gripping their brush.
