Easy did it. After a few runs in the easy slope I found my groove and actually had fun. I even helped a lady hill who had fallen and couldn't stand up. Then in the last run a lady sitting by me on the lift pulled me down and I hit the ground from behind very sharply. I couldn't move for a while and eventually crawled out of the way. I was not sure if I could ski down but I made it.
I must give credit to M and friends for their support in pushing me to ski. Otherwise I was ready to leave at noon.
Now. I'm glad it all came back to me and I am grateful that it was an uneventful day for us all.
