I am a fairly new skier. This is my third winter skiing. I did my first black diamond runs this season and had a few loop-di-loops in my belly on the first run. After that I was ok.

Oh, I think that doing the same scary run again is really important, because it's *never* as scary the 2nd time around.

Got the link working. Went back to Snowbasin last Saturday. That run isn't nearly as terrifying as I remember it now. So we found new challenging terrain. emoticon There's always room to improve :D

I can't get that link to work...

Whenever I try a new expert run, I'm nearly always terrified. (Even though I generally do fine.) I guess it's just a matter of working through it, one turn at a time.

There is this run at Snowbasin - the olympic downhill run from 2002. It's off of the Mt. Allen tram. My mom took me on the tram just for the experience my first season living in Utah.

In the tram I remember thinking "what ever comes down off this thing, there's no way I'm skiing it." But I was told it's not as bad as it looks, so I took a chance.

There's a narrow icy bit at the top to get to the real start of the run. I side stepped and snowplowed down that. Afterwards, I was free to ski/tumble down the mountain without fear of serious consquences.

The run's a rush. I didn't do it with style or grace, but it feels good to say I skiied the olympic run.

I'd love to share with you some victories we've had over our fears, particularly those involving our skiing adventures, I'm sure we all have something to share.
I was so scared of trying a new pair skis on the other day , but, once I tried them, they were perfect....
