Learning to Ski at Breckenridge

Challenging yourself is one of the most thrilling things you can do. I experienced this firsthand over spring break when I traveled from Tampa to Breckenridge, Colorado to ski. At first, the thought of going up a freezing mountain to ski was daunting. Coming from a warm, tropical climate, I was completely out of my comfort zone. However, after a few hours of practicing my balance, I was able to control my movement on the snow.

On my second day of skiing, I decided to push myself and took a ski lift up to where the more advanced slopes were. After I reached the peak of the mountain as seen on the right, I was ecstatic to make my way down the mountain.
