We got there a little early, wanted to make sure that she wasn't rushed and that we got her skis. So after picking up the skis she clowned around a bit and got a little used to them being on her feet. I was also able to snap a few pics...
Yes, we even got a a pair of pink gobbles. She was so excited and told everyone we saw that today was her first day to ski and that pink is her favorite color (that is a hard thing to guess).
After a snack and some water it was time to meet the teacher. His name was Alex, I'm pretty sure that he drew the short straw, he was not excited at all to be working with Tommy and Safi. Oh well, you are getting paid dude, suck it up!!
They walked around in the snow to get used to their boots. Safi stood there and looked at him like he was a moron. Then when he gave the go ahead to get their skis she took off running.
They put on one ski and pretended like they were riding a scooter. "This is not a scooter, this is a ski! I want to ski!" She was not having this nonsense.
Next it was time to put on the second ski and practicing getting up....
She totally has the ski as fast as you can out of control down the hill nailed!! We will keep working on the whole pizza thing. She finally figured out at the end of the lesson how to do it, she wasn't putting heels out.
If anyone has any ideas on how to keep those mittens out of her mouth I am soooo open to ideas!!! She would fall, scoop up a handful of snow and munch. When the snow was gone, she would continue to suck on that damn mitten.
Safi had a blast, but she was exhausted!! She is already asleep, and anyone who knows her knows that is an accomplishment. Maybe we will try again next week :)
