    I'm Going Skiing!!

    Discussion in 'The Lounge' started by Heather Louise, Jul 12, 2007.

    orytee everyone!! today at school i just found out that i am going skiing. actually, everyone who wants to and can afford it, is going skiing. we should be getting the letters tomorrow, but my sister has allready got hers and it says that you either go to Italy/France/Switzerland for 6 days for only £545!! that's not much if you think it inclued flights, flight insurance, hotel, food and skiing lessons and equiptment. we are going in the beggining of March i tihnk, i sooooo can't wait. more information about it when i get some, hopefully tomorrow. :) so, anyway, to make this an actual topic, have any of you been skiing before and how hard is it??
    love,
    a very excited Heather :p

    I have skied before, but only cross-country, never downhill. But it should be a wonderful experience. Start counting down the weeks!

    yea, i have never been to either and i am really looking forward to it. although, i would have rather went to France as i know a little bit of the langauge. i am toying with the idea of learning a little bit of italian before going, lol.
