So im a fan of Groupon, I have bought a few things from there over the years, mostly spa days…….. ok ok I’ve only ever bought spa days!
However a few weeks ago I purchased an offer for beginners ski lesson at Chill Factore .
It’s something I’ve been wanting to try for a while and here it was, with around 60% discount!  Such a bargain

I had a blast, an icy blast but a blast nonetheless. Once kitted out the instructor Nikki,  took my little group of to the nursery slope for our intro to ski. The session last about 1 hour and 50, we covered safety, how to put on/ take of the ski, posture,  balance and then up the slope we went. 
I managed to master parallel leg gliding and also the plough and plough with turn.

I fell, twice, but hey lost my ski virginity so it’s all good.

After the lesson I  was handed my record card and told that I’d passed level 1 and could progress to level 2!!

Before I commit to more lessons I’ve booked a beginners snow board class to see which I prefer.

I can’t wait to see if it’s something  new for me to pursue
