Sliding Down the Hill

Saturday I was finally able to coak R2 into doing downhill skiing - he was using miniskis, whereas I used my Big Slider. Remember my Big Slider? If not, here's the pic:

So the bottom line is that I sat down on the "butt" section and held on to the rounded part while sliding down the hill. The problem was that it was TOUGH for me to get up the hill without skis under my shoes. I kept on falling deeper and deeper into snow so that R2 had to go back down and make "snow steps" to help me up. When it was getting steeper and steeper, I almost had to crawl so that I wouldn't slide down ha ha ha ha ha...

The first time I slid downhill, it wasn't smooth since the snow was too thick. The second time I did it, it was FANTASTIC!!! But I made a mistake...R2 told me that I should've kept my legs up so that my legs wouldn't hinder my I did as told the next time and WOOSSSSHHHHH...It was SO MUCH FUN!!! I could do it MUCH MUCH better than when I tried miniskiing ---> it was more scary standing up while sliding down and not knowing HOW TO STOP!!!

With my Big Slider, since I was sitting down safely, I could really let myself I kept on going back up the hill and down...WOOOHOOOOO!!!! Unfortunately there're no pics since R2 advised me not to take it up. I'm GLAD I took his advice, remembering how hard it was to get up there without skis. However, I promise that next time I'll take some pics or short video clips, OK?

I'm ordering myself some snow shoes that R2 said would help me go up the hill easily. This is the pic of the snow shoes I ordered (the cheapest pair we've found online HO HO...):

Can't wait to go to the hill again HE HE HE HE HE HE HE...
