We went to Ski Bowl on the mountain today. (And I didn't take my camera. I borrowed an iPhone for this photo.) 90% of Ski Bowl was great fun! Especially since we got in for free. One of the main features of Ski Bowl is the Alpine Slide. You ride down a concrete track on a something like a big skateboard. It's fantastic! But you're supposed to take a chair lift to get to the top.
Now, I remember riding a chair lift once as a kid. I don't remember having any problems with it. But I'm not a skier, so I haven't been on one in probably twenty years. Turns out I'm a wee bit afraid of heights. Or at least afraid of chair lifts. Something about the swinging, the dangling. . . and my recent viewing of this horrid movie didn't help. It was terrifying and I cycled through all my coping skills to make it through without scaring my eight year old.
