Mt. Sunapee - Skiing Lesson #2

Top of Paradise Trail My shins ache a bit, but that’s normal right!  😜   It's Learn To Ski month and it was a super fun 2nd day of ski lessons. Love the snow conditions here at Mount Sunapee Ski Resort! A couple of laps on the easy Lime (Green) trail and then we headed up the "Clipper Ship Quad" lift to ski down Paradise to Smooth Sail'n trails (both green). After our lessons I went back to Lime to keep practicing my turn technique (no snow plow turns) for another hour. It was another fun day skiing and I didn't want to leave! So many things to remember!  Trust your legs/feet! Remember to keep ankles and knees flexed. Keeping my weight on the balls of my feet forces the front of my skis into the snow and this helps makes turning super easy. Be patient when coming around the turn.  For left turns, put most of my weight on right ski. Vice-versa for right turns. Turning uphill will slow you down. Breathe! Starting to get it!!!   ⛷ 🎿 Gr

Mt. Sunapee - Skiing Lesson #1

These aren't ice climbing boots! My very first time skiing EVER, and it was a blast! 💓 It's Learn To Ski month and I bought the Adult 3 Pack Ski Lessons for $155 at Mt. Sunapee Ski Resort. The price includes gear rental and instruction. I arrived at the Rental Shop to check in and get my gear rental voucher and 3-lesson coupons. There were two other guys standing in line behind me who also signed up for the same group lessons. But they had some sort of emergency, cancelled their lessons and left. Honestly, they didn't look dressed for a day of skiing...they had street clothes on and one guy was complaining how cold he was. In any case, I was pretty stoked - I got a private lesson for the price of a group lesson! 👍 The folks at the Rental Shop were super nice and friendly, and made the entire process of getting my gear very easy. I took a shuttle from the Rental Shop to the South Peak Learning Area. From there I met Steve and he helped me adjust my ski boots so
