Our center’s activities and parties are always amazing. Definitely, this Skiing Day is no exception. We enjoyed a lot. On the sunny morning, Feb18, 2012, we excitedly headed for Nanshan ski field which is the biggest one in Beijing.
Most of us were beginners. Personally, this was my first skiing. At first, I was a little nervous and afraid. Under James’ guide, who is our service manager and used to be a skiing instructor, we started from the basic gestures, controlling speed and making turns step by step. James helped us wear boots, use skiing poles and he demoed every gesture patiently and “seriously”. What he said most was “Trust me! You can do it!”. He encouraged me a lot. In addition, he told us a lot of interesting experience and how popular skiing is in the west, especially in Australia. Actually, all of us were touched by him. At last, I could ski on the intermediate slope without falling down, which was much better than I expected. I challenged myself and succeeded.
I am sure this experience is very special for everyone. It will be a wonderful memory in my life. I love skiing and WSE very much. Moreover, I want to say “Thank you very much” to my skiing instructor James. I am looking forward to the next Skiing Day.
