SKIING IN VAL D’ISERE





SKI SHOP


SKI GEAR





We had such a fun time in Val D’isere, Jason & I went skiing with our friends Hannah and Stef for the week and it was one of the most challenging physical/mental activities that I have done, but I was extremely determined and persistent to get good at it.
For the first few days I could only do parts of green (the easiest) runs and by the end of the holiday I skied all the way down the mountain, feeling exhilarated and so happy that I pushed myself!
These are the key points I would mention/suggest if a friend were to ask me about the trip and what to bring etc.
I am now itching to get back on to the slopes which I never thought would happen and if you haven’t been skiing before (this was my second trip but on my first we didn’t have much snow) then prepare for it to possibly be a difficult learning curve but just keep practicing!
I would also say to go with people of your own skiing ability – it will make it much more fun!

    I have been keeping up with your skiing adventures on YouTube and know how challenging you found it. I usually feel the same way when people do hikes. I feel like I'm just slow and don't enjoy it but glad you persevered and enjoyed yourself. I really adore your top shop ski suit and these shots are so gorgeous, some even look out of a magazine!

    Gorgeous photos Sammi, I hope you had an amazing time! My other half keeps begging me to go skiing with him but I'm terrified – your photos make me want to give it a try though x

    Always, Alice

  10. I had so many tantrums when I was learning to snowboard, that was years ago though and would love to go again! Yours, Jason's and The Michalaks vlogs made me really crave having another go!

    I feel the struggle you went through (watched your vlog as well from the trip). I learned to snowboard this year and it was one of the most physically (and mentally) challenging things I've ever done! It can definitely be frustrating, but also so fun! These pictures are all gorgeous Sammi!

  21. Hey gal! Literally had the very same experiance. At one point at th beginning of the trip I threw my ski boot at my partner.
    I think it was from two things, frustration and fear. Also its never a nice feeling when you think you're holding the group up. However by the end of the trip I was like yourself raring to go. I just looked up the ski suit you were wearing, it's out of stock.. Bummer! Anyways looks like you had fun! You should try The 3 Vallees next time, has lots of nice blues!

  26. I loved this post! Don't think I'll be skiing soon though, they frighten me! Hahaha. How horrifying that there aren't any crepes after 6 PM?!?!

  27. daniella-r says:

    Haha, love that one of your key points is 'no crepes to be found after 6pm'. That Crepe place was deff against you and Hannah getting any! Enjoying the vlogs from your skiing trip. I went in Feb and found it really difficult too!

    THESE PICTURES ARE BEAUTIFUL!!
    I have never gone skiing, makes me a bit nervous thinking about it. I did see that you really tried while you were out there so I might just have to do the same and have it on my TO DO list! πŸ™‚

    Beautiful photos! I've never been skiing before but I would love to go; however I think that's mainly influenced by how beautiful I think the scenery looks xD I think I'd be similar to you tbh, I hate not being able to do something straight away and get myself down about it. I'm glad you persevered and enjoyed it in the end! πŸ˜€

  40. I completely understand your frustrations when watching your Vlog's, it's sad to see you upset like that but refreshing to know I'm not the only one that has those moments….plus, I noticed in your recent blog you mentioned haters and not discussing things you get gifted in the post, DONT LISTEN TO THEM! They are my favourite parts in Vlogs, I'm loving Shaaanxo's vlogs and she always discusses things she get's sent! Don't let the haters get you down!
    Lots of love
