Yes.My father is very good at skiing.He had a licence as well to teach.I started to ski when I was 4 yrs old and I didn't like it at all because I kept falling and hard to stand up and stuff(you can imagine,right?). I and my family went to ski trip at least twice a year.I left my home country(Japan) when I was 19 and I haven't been to ski since..:( I miss skiing with my family.

I tried skiing for the first time last year. It was difficult!!! I fell a lot too – that was the only way I knew how to stop. I was using muscles I didn’t know I had. I’m from a tropical island so skiing was totally new to me. I did enjoy the challenge though and at the end of the day I could at least stay on my feet for a while. I want to go back and learn to ski properly, but that would take time and money. So it will have to wait.
