Skiing  

Driving up  

the sun shining  through your window   

you feel so exited  

you see the Valley  

You get all your ski gear on  

you clip in  

Hop on chair 

you’re at the top   

so happy  

we have such a nice mountain  

you ski down in to the park with snow spraying in your face 

And the nice cold breeze  going up your facemask  

And you just wish this day would never end.

Winter Night

Hi everyone,

In the picture you see people sleeping in a tent in Alaska. They’re on a ski trip and it’s most likely FREEZING. You can see how they are traveling on their snow shoes. By the looks of it, it’s just one person. I would be scared all by myself.

What would you do?

I wonder do they hunt for their food or do they have it in their back packs? It looks like there is a fire in their tent but it’s probably flash lights.  Where are they going next? Are they at their elevation or are they still hiking?

If I was up there I would be scared of BEARS. I’ve seen them a lot but if a bear was at my tent I would freak out.

What do you see?

About Me


Hi Skiers!

My Name is Nate.

I live in the Comox Valley. I’m 12 years old and I’m in grade 7.

I love sports and the outdoors. My favorite sport is Freestyle skiing at Mount
Washington B.C. I mountain bike there in the summer. I started skiing
at the age of 3.

Now I stopped playing hockey lasted year to ski on a
freestyle traveling team for the Mount Washington ski team. I’m
sponsored by Apache Pine. They saw my videos and emailed me.

And in the summer the things I do are cliff jumping, bridge jumping and
flipping, motocross, surfing, mountain biking, skate boarding, and
hunting. I don’t like the summer as much as winter because I prefer
skiing.

I have a 10 year old brother that plays rep A hockey so when I
am not skiing we are traveling for hockey.

I like dogs and I had a Newfoundland dog that was 180 pounds. I want a Burmese Mountain
dog. I learned to ski in Canmore at Lake Louse. My favorite youtubers
are Tanner Braungardt and Casey Neistat.

Thanks for visiting my blog.
