Place: Bavarian Forest, Germany
After skiing in Michigan a couple of times, I tried skiing in the Great Arber. It was a wonderful experience. I was able to do the basic paths, but was too scared looking at the intermediate paths.
After a couple of rounds I started hiking in the snow. I was missing a spike shoes… I think it is a must on this snow. I had a tough time standing
Listening to one of my favorite song – “Creed’s – One last breath“
Even though it is cold and dry, yet so beautiful:

Where: Mount Holly, Michigan.
Temperature felt like:
-2 to -8 Deg F (around -18 to -22 Deg C)
Tips for skiing in these conditions:
- Dress in layers
- Wear a Ski Mask with glasses!
- Most important with the ski gloves try hand warmers
Skiing or Scuba diving?
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”
Overall… I had a great time skiing… I have a feeling it will be my new obsession!
