We had no classes on that day, so we thought “why not go skiing for one day?!” Nine of us decided to go; we rented a van and left early in the morning, ready for a two and a half hour drive up to Isaberg.
We finally arrived in Isaberg around 11 am, and by the time we were ready it was so late that we decided to skip lunch and take advantage of the time we had on the slopes, which closed at 4pm. Four of us opted for the snowboard, and the rest for skis. Jan and I are the only ones who know how to ski/snowboard, but for the others it was the first time! There were many falls, but everybody had so much fun! By the end of the day Nemer, David and Andres also went down a red slope, which was a big accomplishment, considering they had never skied before.
Of course, by the time the slopes closed, we were all very hungry and decided to go to eat at Max, a Swedish fast food restaurant, without knowing that the closest one was about one and a half hour away. So we finally had lunch (which became lunch + dinner) at 6 o’clock.
It was a great day, and we can’t wait to do it again!
Here is a picture of the nine of us, with the red slope in the background. It is wonderful that with IMFSE, besides getting a great education, we get to have unforgettable adventures as well!
