You click into your skis. Snap! your slowly pushing yourself up to the lift. Your turn! You lunge forward! You sit like nothing just happened. On your way up your gut tingles with anticipation. You rase your skis and push off the seat. You pull yourself to the edge of the slope. Snap! Your boots go tight. You look down the mountain at the glistening snow. You jam your poles into the soft snow! your rushing down the mountain! Kicking up snow as you turn. Right, left, right, left. You go airborne. Everything slows down as you glide swiftly threw the air. You land softly. As you speed up the crisp cold air lashes at your face. Right, left, right, left! You go into a straight away and tuck down. You slash the snow as you speed down the mountain like a bullet. You find yourself at the bottom ready to go back up!
