skiing poem


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.

The Big Snowfall

It was a very snowy day on Mount Washington, our ski resort. I was finished skiing and it was dumping snow. Me and my friend were waiting for the bus but after an hour the bus was not there yet so I called my mom. I told her about the delay.

We knew the bus would be crowded so when we saw it we tried to walk our calmly like nothing was going on. We thought we’d get down quickly but it was the opposite.  We kept getting stuck even though we had chains on the bus tires.  It took an hour to get out of the parking lot!

It was getting dark. There were cars in the ditch and two buses flipped, blocking the roads, and a couple of  snow cats broke too.

Now it was pitch black out and we would move 20 feet every hour. I called my dad and he was going to drive up but there was police cars everywhere blocking the roads.  I thought I was going to be sick but we finally got down and I realized that we got on the bus at 4:00 pm and got home at 11:30 pm. Six and a half hours on a bus!

The next day the mountain was closed. There were pictures of cars buried and the chair lift too. You can see pictures and a video here. That day someone went to the out back and fell in a tree well and died. He was not found that day and the snow buried him. That was very sad.

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

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.
