My Trip to Crystal Mountain
by Dalron G.
On Feb. 16, 2011 our
school took us to Crystal Mountain! When we got there everyone had to
start at Totem Park. (Those are the bunny hills). A lot of people got to
advance to the ski lifts. Then we went back to the lodge and had lunch.
The school let me advance to the ski lifts. My favorite hill was J.T.'s
trail. I want on it a couple times. Then it was time to go. I took my
skis and boots back to the rental place, got on the bus and left.
I went with Taylor H.,
Tamara, Travos, Zack, Kylie. My mom and I went to Totem Park and my mom
went down four times. I went to the big hills and my mom didn't go on
the big hills because she was too scared and she stayed on the bunny
hill. I fell down three times. Do you want to know how to move on to the
big hills because I will tell you. 1. Wave to Mrs. Millark. 2. Wait for
her to wave back. When she waves back that means she has her eye on you.
3. Show her you can turn and that you can stop and if you do a great job
then she will give you a pass to go on the big hills but you cannot go
on Black Diamonds. ~Maddie
I will never forget the day I went
to Crystal Mountain.
My class and I went to Crystal
Mountain. My Mom, Dad, Sister and Grandpa came too. If you are a
beginner or have kids you should go to Totem Park. The best chair
lift is the Crystal Clipper. If you see as sign that is a green
circle it is easy. a Blue square means that it is medium. a black
diamond means that it is hard. My favorite part is skiing down Hoot
Owl. I will never forget the day I went to Crystal Mountain.

At Crystal Mountain I skied with my
dad. I went on these trails: JT's Trail, Emmy, Main Street, Jason's
Trail, Tammy's Turn, Megan's Way, Leo's Legacy, By George, Short Cut and
Canyon. The chair lifts I went on were the Crystal Clipper, North Face
and one other one. I fell down once. I went on green circle trails and
blue squares. My favorite part was when I went down Canyon. My dad only
fell down a couple of times. I skied with Justin some of the time. I had
so much fun at Crystal Mountain. I can't wait to go again. ~Jackson
I went to Crystal
Mountain with my mom, but I skied with Emma and her grandpa, mom, Mary
and her dad. Emma taught me how to dodge jumps and trees. I went down
Emmy, JT's trail, Main St. Giggles, Hoot Owl and many more. My favorite
trail was on the North Face. It was called Pipers Pass. Emma and I ate
our lunch at the lodge. It was nice and quiet in there. Emma and I
went on all the Chair lifts. We went on Locky, Crystal Clipper and Buck.
There is one more on the North Face that I do not know but Emma and I
went and I went on it. Emma and I went down Locky 3 times, Buck 3 to 4
times, and Crystal Clipper 10 times! ~Sydnee
I was so excited. I was practically
jumping up and down inside and out. It was Feb. 16, 2011 my whole class
was going to Crystal Mountain. So of us skiied before and some of us did
not know how to. Well I skiied before and I ski a lot. My mom came and
she drove there. My class and I rode the bus there. It was a fun bus
ride. I sat by my best friend Colleen. Her dad was going too but he got
sick. When we got there my class went in the lodge just to get everybody
ready to go skiing. When my mom got there me and Colleen got our stuff
on and we hit the slopes. My mom took Colleen with us. Ella and her dad
skiied with us and we went on a lot of slopes. Ella's dad had to go
somewhere so we took Ella for the rest of the day. My mom said if she
gets hurt on her watch it's not her fault. But guess what? She hit a
tree! Don't ask how she just did. She was ok thankfully. When we got to
the bottom of one hill, my friend Dalron and Zach just got off Totem
Park. They said they could go up the chair with an adult. So my mom took
us all up...all five of use up. We had a real adventure ahead of us. We
got them down the hill ok. Then they went with other people. Then we
went back on the hills. It was the best good behavior ski day ever.
Wait, one more thing, it was my moms birthday. I would tell you how old
she is but she would be MAD if I told you. I think it is a women thing.
Oh one more thing, when we were going down the hill with Dalron he fell
once and he closed his eyes and he said, "Am I in heaven yet?" Then he
opened his eyes and said, "I did not know Crystal Mountain was in
heaven" Well it was the best day in History.

Going up the chair lift is great fun
