I finally went skiing a couple of weeks ago in Colorado. It was so much fun! I had an instructor and I think I got pretty good. These pics are from the second day of skiing (I swear my form got much better on the third day. I might even have stopped steering with my tongue).
I did do a lot of cross-country skiing as a kid, and my instructor told me that he thought that's why I picked up alpine skiing quickly now. Here is a shot of me and my sister (in matching outfits!) from back in the day in rural Sweden :) I'm 7 in this picture.
