Nordic Skiing

  Yesterday Greg and I did something we have never done before; we went nordic skiing.  We went with our friends, Clark and Autumn, at Alta.  It was such a nice day.  The sun was shining, the weather wasn't too cold.  The mountains looked so majestic.  We rented all our equipment and were off on our way.  Clark was a professional right way.  He watched youtube videos of Olympic cross country skiers before coming up and I think it helped.  It was a lot harder for me then I thought it would be.  I woke up this morning with sore arms and legs.  Greg is more athletic than me so he isn't that sore.  He did do the splits once and said he is hurting a little from that! Haha.

  Greg was more adventurous than me.  He would go a lot faster and went down small slopes that I walked down instead of skiing.  This resulted in him falling down in the snow a lot more than me.  Here is one of Greg's tumbles.  



 
After 3 hours we definitely got the hang of it.  It was such a fun activity.  I would go again for sure!
