Hi, I am Emily, and I am very proud to be called an ambassador of the 5th grade passport program.
I've been part of my Mum's blog for many years, now it's my turn! As a 5th grader, I get a chance to use the 5th grade Passport and explore all of Utah's resorts!
We all have to start somewhere. For instance, I started at the gorgeous resort of Alta. I did not want to put on my ski boots for they were uncomfortable and I loved my comfy snow boots. We all do not like the boots, but you will learn to get used to them. I started out in a private lesson for some one-on-one time with the instructor which really is the best option so I was not distracted by other kids or smashed. She pulled me around and up the magic carpet.
As I progressed I went to Snowbird and was able to go with other kids, now that I knew how to stay on my feet and not fall. I learned how to turn not just straight-line.(go straight all the way down)
There, I ran my first ski race course and the dreams of a Winter Olympics popped into my mind.
Now, I am up there all the time, and loving every minute. My friends ask, “Do you ever get to relax?” And I always answer, “Skiing is relaxing and freedom from the worries of life. I need no more relaxing.”
