Skiing at the Remarks

On Sunday I went skiing with QAST to the Remarks ski field to train because it is much flatter than Coronet Peak which will help us on the flat racing courses we do on different mountains.

We trained all day. First we practised hi tucks and low tucks. For a hi tuck you move forward in the middle of the turn and the low tuck is when you are going straight.

Then after lunch we did a course. I liked doing this the most.

When training finished dad, Fraser, Gally and I hiked up to the chutes and skied down to Lake Alta. The hike up was hard dad took my skis I had trouble because I kept falling over. The steps in the ice were big because they were made by adults and not for little kids and my feet didn’t reach into the holes.

The first run was called Alta Chute and the second was called elevator. Alta Chute was good it had lots of powder to the side. Elevator was really steep and had a little alley way through the rocks. I was on my big GS skis and it was hard for me. We skied down to Lake Alta which is a frozen lake.
