Skiing outfit

I was finally able to ski after falling a lot of times… and learning some tips from the kids around. Still need to learn how to control my speed while skiing. I almost crashed into a skate board guy who was going zig zag. I ended up screaming at him “Watch out” :D

Overall… I had a great time skiing… I have a feeling it will be my new obsession! ;)
