Thanks Parky Again. Some good advice there. I will definitely go with someone experienced or else I'd end up looking like Bambi on the slopes!
Brings to mind that awful saying, 'no pain, no gain'!
Hi parkyagain. No, I've never been skiing before. If it's anything like the time I went ice skating then I'm sure the boots will be mighty uncomfortable! lol
Socks sound like very important too. I'm learning all the time. Thanks also for the tips from everyone on beginners' slopes here.
Sorry for hijacking your post Cumbrian Canary!
Thanks to everyone who had advice on skiing though
Talking of ski socks, I've never tried my hand at skiing before. I usually put total trust in my walking boots to keep my feet moving on terra firma.
I've just been browsing the English tourist board's site for places to ski here. Am I mad or are there natural slopes (not artificial ones) in this country? Sorry for going off topic.
I was about to post a similar request to the Enjoy England forum but thought it might sound like a daftquestion. As for ski socks, I can't really help you with that one Cumbrian Canary!
Well done Paul. I'm on lunch break so don't have much time to read through for long, but fascinating stuff. I would love to do something similar. It's just being able to take some time out. I'll post to your blog later though.
