The long dark ski time of the soul

On Friday, my church and I went to the Wisconsin Dells to ski. Unlike my last church trip, my mom came skiing with us, and there wasn’t be extreme amounts of loud singing! It took us about five hours to get there. I watched Monty Python most of the way, and I also watched the Simpsons Movie. When we got there, it was around 10:00 PM.

The cabins were pretty good, almost exactly like the ones in Carlinville. Our youth leaders had a talk about not having purple. (If you need a hint, red=girls, blue=boys) So we have a boys bathroom and room, and a girls bathroom and two girls rooms. After that the camp director talked to our group. Then I went to bed.

The next day I woke up and went to get breakfast. I got cold pancakes and syrup. It was surprisingly good. After that, we got into a car for half an hour. When we got out, we were at Devil’s Head Ski Resort. When we got our boots and skis, my mom and I went down a green hill. Big mistake. I couldn’t go ten feet without falling. We got down eventually, and I got to go down the bunny hill a couple times. After that, I could get down the green slope without falling. The next slope I went down was a blue. The first time I went down was fine, but the second time I wiped out and hit my head hard. I was able to get up and and go down the rest of the way. The resorts food wasn’t the best, but there was a lot of it. After lunch, we went on some more hills then went back to camp. I was so tired I could barley listen to the lesson. After the lesson I went to bed.

The next day was pretty much the same, except most of us went to an indoor water park. I went skiing. The next day was pretty much the same as the previous day except my mom talked me down a black diamond. Other than that it was the same as yesterday. When we got back to camp I went to sleep. We went home the next day and it took us about five hours to get home. On the way back, Dominick really liked to watch Young Einstein. When my mom and I got back to the church we had to go to my sister’s dance practice. Then we went home.
