I'm at Lake Tahoe right now. I like to ski, and usually, when we go, I rush right down the hill. I'm more a beginning intermediate level person. My problem is that when the snow gets icy, when people almost hit me, anything like that, I get REALLY scared. During this ski trip, it was kind of crowded. It was also a little icy. So, naturally, I froze. The first two days of skiing were frightening. But on the last day, it was amazing. I guess I got over it. Here are some tips if you ever get scared:
- Keep telling yourself that you can do it.
- It might also help if you do something you love. Sometimes, when I'm skiing, I sing quietly. I have more fun that way.
Fun Fact: Lake Tahoe is the second deepest lake in the U.S. It is also the tenth deepest lake in the world.
