It all started very early in the morning, it was very cold and I was a bit nervous . We travelled up the mountain on the Ski Tube to get our skis out from the locker room, but the locker room wasn’t open. It was a bit crazy but luckily someone had gone to get help so we could get our skis out in time for our race.
Lachlan and I jumped onto the chairlift, but Mummy couldn't get on without her skis. Mummy was helping as a race official, so we went on the chairlift by ourselves. It was very cold that morning and snowing. I skied down to the start of the race track so I could do a practice run. It was soon time for my race to start, so I skied back down to the chairlift and rode up the top of the mountain to the start line. The race officials were marshalling everyone into their race order, I was number 6. When I realised it was almost time for my race to start I got a little bit nervous.
There is a special trip wire which starts my time. I put my stocks out in front of the trip wire and then they said: “red course ready, blue course ready, racers ready, GO!”
I pushed my stocks out and raced through the trip wire and down the mountain skiing beside the flags. The course was a little bit icy but I raced as fast as I could. The boys raced beside me, their course had blue flags and the girls had red flags. After my first race, I had one last try on the race course. My first race time was 43.46 and on my second time was 46 seconds. The two times gave me a combined time of 89.46 and I finished in 31st place. There were 121 girls racing that morning. It was freezing but we had so much fun and I love skiing it is my favourite sport. Thank you to the school for letting me ski in the Interschool race.
