Utah: part 2

I’m in Utah!!!

The first day we got up early and went skiing!! I was skiing all day untill we had to come in to eat dinner.

My dad and I like skiing together every year so the next day, my dad showed me some really good slopes! They had 2 new ski lifts so we had to go try them out and see if it was worth it!! They turned out to be great! The slopes were easy so we could ski super fast down the mountain and race!

My friend Sarah came with me and my brother and cousin the next day to go up to the main lodge to play basketball! I was on a team with my brother, cousin, and another girl. We crushed it!! My brother, Kevin was the one who threw the ball in the hoop. I was the one who got it out of the players hands. And lastly, my cousin was the one who dribbled to the back of the court.

On our third day I didn’t ski in the morning because my family went to drop of my oldest brother to the airport because he couldn’t miss a lot of school. So that meant I was in the condo…alone!! I watching tv all day untill I went with Sarah to ski at night. We went on the lift, and as we got closer and closer… we got really exited!! We went up and down about 8 times with of course a hot chocolate break!! We were on our 9th run and we were at the top when the lights turned off!! We couldn’t see a thing!!! We got down, but as we got closer to the bottom, the lights turn off down their too!! We screamed!!! But we survived!!

On our last full day… my dad and I went to the new lifts in the afternoon. We went up to the highest lift — that took us 3 lifts to get up to— and started to go down. We were at the first lift when one of the workers told us that they were shutting down the lifts because a giant wind/snow storm was coming. He told us that we were the last people on the mountain!! We went up the lift and I stared to get scared. A giant gust of wind blew and made our skis lift. We went down another slope and I skied the fastest I could because all I wanted to do was get down. We went on the 2nd lift and they told us to come inside the operator room because the wind was up to 70 mph!! A snow cat came and picked us up. (its a giant snow mobile that can carry a lot of people) We were saved!! After that my mom came and picked us up.

Today!! Right now I’m sitting in a airport chair typing this!! Our flight isn’t untill 8:00 but we had to come at 3:00 because my cousins flight is at 5:00. That means I’m not going to get home till 1:00 in the morning and tomorrow morning I’m going to school!! I still have homework to do for math but not a ton so I’m doing all that on the plane!!

It’s only 6:30 here but 7:30 in Austin!! I’m going to go watch a movie before I have to start my homework!! I’m counting the months untill next year when I get to ski again!!

  1. Hi Erin! This trip to Utah sounds awesome. I also love skiing and I didn’t hear where you skied, but I ski in Deer Valley if that sounds familiar. My aunt has a house in Utah and that’s where we ski every year.
