(Sapporo Kokusai Skiing Resort)
(half way down the hill)
On the third day of the meeting, we went skiing with our distributors at Sapporo Kokusai Skiing Resort. It is a beautiful skiing area and provides full service; including rental service for ski set, ski wear set, and private lesson (even in English), so tourists do not have to prepare the ski wear.
I had a very short experience of skiing in Canada five years ago, so this time was kind of my first time skiing. Company arranged a training class to those beginners in the morning, and arranged instructors escorting us to experience the intermediate/beginner trail skiing.
It was quite a challenge to a first time skier to ski on the skiing trail, especially on intermediate trail. To make this happen, I skied slowly with few time falling down; went through the whole trail which was over 1.3 Km.
After today's training, I think I can enjoy skiing more than ever, if I have a chance to ski again. Today we learned skiing in a hard way, but a quick way!
