Ski trip

I went out for skiing yesterday at Lake Mountain. It was about 2-3 hours drive from the city. This is the first time I am skiing. I went there with many Malaysian students and the trip was fun and a bit exhausting.
The snow at Lake Mountain was thick and some places even waist deep. The scenery was amazing and a bit cold. We even managed to make instant 'ais kacang' using snow, baked beans and creamed milk B-)
The ski trails has many path and we choose the easiest route. The path is about few kilometres long and it was the most tiring journey I have made using ski. Since this is my first time using ski, I often falls and trip over for every 10 metres. The worst is when we tried to ski down a slope. I am able to ski properly down the hill but I don't know how to stop or slow down. As the speed increases, I became a bit anxious and lost the balance. This happened every time I skied down a steep terrain.

Some people even crashed against each other and few people almost hit a tree on the way down. For a beginner, this sport can be a bit dangerous if you are not able to balance properly.
In the last 100 metres of the ski trail, after countless falls and suffering enough bruises at my knee, ankle and wrist and pain at my back, I gave up. I took off the ski and started walking :). Next time I am planning to ski, I should read some tips on how to ski properly and safely.

UPDATE: The picture of 'ais kacang' :)

bestnya pi skiing. i'm sure the cold weather helps the snowfalls a lot. jatuh tu perkara biasa though if you know how to skate (roller or ice) kurang sikit kot.

ice kacang korang tu buat pakai virgin snow ke? hehehe. kalau snow yang orang dah lalu tu macam yucky je :D

kasyah: I believe you will be able to get a chance to do some skiing in the future :). Just work hard to achieve your dream.

Tawel: betul juga tu, sekali imbas tengok macam darah.


Minci: yeah, we do eat it :D.

Moshimoshi: yup, we used pure white-ish snow for that. It is delicious although a bit cold.
