Skiing in high winds

Hello everyone 

Today I am going to talk about what it's like to ski in extremely windy conditions. 

Chairlifts 

Watch your gear on the chair. Sometimes the winds can be so strong that I feel like I'm going to fall off the chair! 

Skiing

When you are in the air and a huge gust of wind hits you it's time to pray! Pray the wind doesn't knock you down! I have been blown over just standing still by extreme winds! 

Frostbite

Better dress warm and stay covered! Frostbite is so painful! Even frost nip hurts. 

If you are going to be skiing in hurricane force winds its best to stay low and take it easy. It just takes one big gust to make you crash.
