Let’s Go Ski
I am going skiing at the Adaptive Sports Center in Crested Butte.
Skiing on snow will be a lot of fun.
The office can get very busy.
I could go to a quiet room if it gets too noisy.
I will arrive at the Treasury Center. I will go down the stairs to find the Adaptive Sports Center.
I will look for a big sign with blue mountains. The sign looks like this:
I will tell the people at the front desk my name.
I will meet my instructor. My instructor will help me get ready.
My instructor will help me pick boots that fit just right.
Then I will get a pair of skis.
I will wear ski clothes. Long Johns
I will make sure I have each item. Long Johns Helmet Neck Warmer Snow Pants Jacket Gloves Ski Socks Goggles Hat
Itâ€™s cold in Crested Butte. I will put on my long johns to keep me warm.
Ski socks keep my toes dry. I will try and pull them up as high as I can.
The snow might be wet. Ski pants will keep the snow out.
I should keep my jacket zipped. It can get windy.
I might wear a neck warmer. I can pull it over my face and ears.
Gloves are important for keeping my fingers warm.
My hat will keep my head and ears warm. I should wear my hat when I go outside.
A helmet protects my head just in case I fall.
Goggles will protect my eyes from the sun. They should fit snug.
Now I am ready to ski! Itâ€™s time to go outside.
