4th Time Skiing

Went to Stevens Pass with Peter, Kat, and Justin on Friday. Took another lesson and it really started to come together for me. 'Attack' the mountain, move the edging leg forward, press into the cuff, load and unload weighting through the turns, and more. Carl the instructor said I need to learn to do pole planting next.

Got some new gear this time. I really like the REI Triad Parka and Swix Split-Mitten gloves.

More ski

Went skiing with Kevin Quan and his friends to Stevens Pass. Took another lesson and it really started to come together: keeping the feet together, weight forward, press into the cuffs, moving the turning foot forward, stand up right, etc. Can't wait to go again.
