When it’s cold and frigid outside and the temperatures are low, my friends and I like to go skiing.
Last weekend there was a sale on lift tickets and my friends and I decided to spend all day Saturday and all day Sunday skiing.
We woke up early on Saturday and made the 2-hour drive out to the ski resort. We were there all day long. We decided to stay somewhere close on Saturday night. We were going to get a room at the lodge, but it was booked up. We ended up at a holiday inn about 5 miles from the ski resort. The hotel was in really good shape and it was still pretty brand new. There was a nice electric heater in the room. The heater was on my side of the bed. I was cozy and warm all night long. There was a bar downstairs and a restaurant. We had dinner at the bar and restaurant and a good night of sleep. Sunday morning, the slopes were not as busy as they were on Saturday. We decided to try one of the more difficult trails. I was going too quickly and I ran right into a tree. When I got up, I could tell that there was a problem with my knee. Later during the week I decided to go to the doctor when my knee was still bothering me. I need surgery to repair the damage from the skiing accident. I have to take off four to six weeks from work in order to have it completed.
