About 3 days ago my parents and I decided to go skiing. Little did we know that it would be 6 inches of powder! Powder is snow that is soft and puffy. You have to follow other people’s track. To stop you have to turn in to the powder. This sounds easy but it isn’t. When your tips hit the powder you have to lean back and then lean forward. If you don’t do this, you will fall! I learned this the hard way. It was like this, fall and fall and fall! My sister didn’t come that day but she went the next day. Unfortunately all of the powder had been skied off the next day! And this is how it happened, one of the employees told a friend that there was powder. That friend told a friend and that friend told everyone in Laramie!
