Since childhood (when I learned) I’ve loved to ski,
What a great way of getting from A to B,
You glide down the mountain so effortlessly,
And land at the bottom in a clump!

To do so you must master a simple skill,
To get you to the top of that tempting hill,
The T-bar or pommel lift – both a bit of a pill,
If you don’t, you’ll come down with a bump!

You’ll be a speed monster, or, like me a style freak,
Either way you need to concentrate quite hard on technique,
And believe me, you’ll feel the wind chill upon your cheek,
As you bravely attempt that first jump!
