I genuinely thought I was either going to fly off the edge of a cliff or stay on the baby slopes all day.
Before skiing on the mountains surrounding lake Tahoe I had skied once in my life, and that was 10 years ago.
Remarkably, everything turned out alright, my body somehow remembered what limited ski practice it had before, and after two baby slope runs, we hit the bigger runs.
We skied at Heavenly Mountain Resort. It can be a bit pricey with an on the day lift ticket costing $145.
The skiing was fantastic. There had been around two previous days of fresh snowfall which continued whilst we were skiing – meaning you had to cover your face well!
Due to the snowfall the stuff on the slopes was BEAutiul and perfect for someone like me who fell over a few times!
