i was 16 and too old

it was horrible

first off snow is wet when you fall over 

it was the end of the season so the snow was thin on the learner slopes

ie rocks were visible especially when i got tangled in the tow rope

it was at a ski field better suited to intermediate and advanced skiers

my 2 friends picked it up much faster and left me on the learners with all the little kids wizzing past at 60 miles an hour
