One day, my family took my brother and me to Tahoe. It took so long to get there. I brought my book with me. So did my brother, Arjun. He brought a Dog Man book. I brought Diary of a Wimpy Kid Rodrick rules. It was so funny. When we arrived at Tahoe downtown, we drove to our airbnb that we would be staying at for the weekend. By then, I finished my book. When we got inside, we put our suitcases away and did what we needed to do, like cooking and showering.
On Saturday, we had our snowboarding class. When we arrived, we got our snowboards. Then, we went to the are that we would be learning to snowboard. We met our instructor when we were putting our snowboards on. His name was Gage. First, we rode the lift up to the top of the shorter mountain. Then, Gage told us that the first thing that we needed to learn was heel stop. I went first. I tried it. When I stopped, I fell. When my brother tried it, he also fell. We both learned a trick to stand up; to turn to our tummy and then stand up. It was easier that way. After doing a few more rounds of it, we went inside and drank hot cocoa. We told jokes while we were. We mostly told knock knock jokes. Then, we went out for snowboarding again.
After sometime of practice, I finally did it. I did it again. I did it again. The next time, I fell. The next time, I tried it but I fell. I tried it a few more times. I fell the first time; the second time I didn’t; the third time I did; and then the last time I didn’t. When we went back up the hill on the lift, I learned a new thing called the toe stop. Arjun was still doing the heel stop though. The heel stop was a thing where you are on a snowboard and you want to stop, you put your heels into the snow and stop the snowboard. The toe stop was the exact same thing except you use your heels. After practicing I figured how to do the heel stop. When we finished, we had lunch and went went to our airbnb.
The next day, we went to the same place as the day before for skiing. We had a different instructor. While we were putting on our skis, we saw Gage. When we went outside, we found our instructor. This time, instead of going to the lift we were on the day before, we were on a different lift. It was on a different mountain. It was smaller than the one we were on the day before. Like the day before, we learned how to stop, but it was different that stopping while you are on a snowboard. We were supposed to make a triangle. It was easy to do, but when I fell, it was hard for me to stand up. My instructor helped me stand. When we stopped a few times, we went to the hill we went to the day before. We were doing the same thing we did at the smaller hill. We were practicing for a long time. Eventually, we got a break. My group were mostly sliding down the hill on our backs. After a few minutes, we continued our skiing practice. After 1 1/2 hour, we finished our class and we went to the spot where we waited for our parents. Gabi came and picked us up like the day before. We had lunch and went home.
Hours later, our airbnb host showed us how to turn the fire place on. We had 3 Hershey bars, 2 packs of marshmallows, and 1 box of gram crackers. We made stores out of them. They were so good.
The next day, we packed up all of our stuff and went home. It took us the same distance, but on a different way to get home. We saw Lake Tahoe on our way. It was so cool. When we got back home, I felt tired. I felt like sleeping for a little while. This is what I did on my trip.
