After three lessons featuring quite a bit of falling over and a very patient ski instructor, I've got myself signed off to ski by myself!
This lesson was so much more fun than the previous two. I took the bumps more naturally and even smiled whilst skiing (a new experience for me!). I also didn't take any tumbles although there were a few wobbly moments.
Currently my skiing still resembles a zombie on ice. I'm much more relaxed than I was but am still too stiff; I have a tendency to look at my skis unless someone reminds me to look up; and generally I pootle down at a pace slightly faster than that of a tortoise.
Anyways, I am celebrating and made the most of an hour on the slopes without my instructor. Yay!
