Nowadays, skiing is one of the most popular winter sports.  Many people enjoy skiing because it is challenging and it gives them a sense of excitement and freedom.  I learned to ski for the first time January 31, 2015 with the PHS Ski Club.  The ski club took an overnight trip to Belleayre Mountain and Ski resort in Highmount, NY located in the Catskill Mountains.  This trip was a very exciting!  It gave me a sense of confidence and it helped me to develop a healthy lifestyle.  I was so ecstatic when I heard Mr. Anudjar told us that we would be going on a ski trip in the upcoming winter.  I had never been to any ski mountain nor had I ever seen any before.  My mother, my best friend and her mother went to a sports equipment store almost immediately and bought skis, boots, poles and a whole outfit.  I was very excited about the trip and wished it could come earlier.  It was a very long night the day before my ski trip because I was so excited.  I was checking over and over again to see if everything was in the right place because I wanted to be well prepared for this trip.  On the first day of the trip, I went to school at 6am in the morning and our bus soon began to move towards our destination.  The bus took almost 2 hours to get us to Belleayre.  Once we got there, our instructor, taught us how to put on our skies and how to use our poles.  After that, he showed us how the body should move when we ski in order to prevent any injuries.  We finally got on the chairlift that took us to the top of the mountain.  Although I was nervous, my heart was racing because I was having so much fun. On this sunny day, I skied down a hill for the first time in my life.  I will never forget how I felt at that moment and how I thought that it was great to be alive.  This trip was so important because it allowed me to really feel excitement of skiing for the first time ever.  I cannot wait to go skiing again!  What a great trip!

    Everything seems to be fun with Mr. Andujar and the great kids as PHS! Naieka, you are a great writer and I remember we wrote an article together last year which turned out to be great. It seems like you guys had a blast. I am so happy that I could be a part of this as well.
