    My Risky Skiing Experience As I grew up in a small town, life was pretty boring most of the time. I've always thought about interesting ways of spending my time.

I took a deep breath and felt cold air filing up my lungs. “Woohoo, go Emilija!” I could hear my teammates and coach cheering up for me from the bottom of the ski run. I impaled my ski poles into the snow and pushed myself off the start line. My heart was pounding and a blast of adrenalin rushed throughout my body as I encountered the opening drop.

    The sun glistened down on a frosty, bitter December morning. The air was so clear and crisp; you could see for miles in every direction. Vibrantly colored hats and mittens littered the horizon like confetti on New Years Eve. Most of the snow on the hills was that glossy, jet-blown, artificial snow, because of the lack of snow up till now.

I hopped on the frosty cold bench, and after a short, tense ride I was at the peak of an intermediate slope. I slowly gazed around, absorbing m
