Skiing and Snowboarding

Have you ever been skiing or snowboarding? The wind, the rush, the thrill, Skiing is easy to learn but hard to master, While snowboarding is hard to learn, but easy to master. Or so the experts say. Well I got the chance to go skiing yesterday. It was amazing. But mainly, It was easy to learn, I found myself struggling on the bunny hills, But in three hours I was going down the blue hills. (Levels go: Bunny, Beginner, green, blue, diamond, double diamond) One small Challenge needed to master is the ski lift. The Ski lift. I felt, off it a couple of times. But It soon became child's play.

Did you know you can ski with out poles? Poles are used for balence, but some people are so good at balencing that they go down without poles.
I have not tried Snowboarding but I have seen it and know some people who do it.
IT's like skateboarding they say. You have to master taking the snowboard boot off and on. It's harder on the ski lifts.

For Skiing you use more lower body strenghth while with snowboarding you use more upper body strenghth.

If you are looking for a first time never ever ski package and you live close to or near Toronto. Dagmar is the place to go! Visit their site at

The Package:
First Time Skiers or Snowboarders:
Package includes:

4 hr ski lift ticket
1 hr lession
All for only $65.

Other places they charge $20 for rental, and $70 for lession and you don't get a lift ticket. Wow! You learn how to actually do it! You then can go shred some snow as they say it!

Skiing and Snowboarding are the types of sports that don't really take Years of practice.

What some people even do is they all get Season passes, Then they all go together skiing or snowboarding.

    PARIS (AFP) – Like the Roman god Saturn who ate his own children, a star 600 light years from Earth is slowly gobbling up one of its own planets, according to a study released on Wednesday in Nature, the British science journal.

    The planet, whose discovery was reported last year, is a "gas giant" with a mass about 40 percent greater than that of Jupiter, the biggest planet of our Solar System, and with a radius 79 percent bigger.

    But whereas Jupiter takes nearly 12 years to plod around the Sun, it takes WASP-12b a mere 26 hours to race around its star, WASP-12, located in the constellation of Auriga.

    So close is its orbit that the gravitational tug of the star has helped to squeeze the planet into a prolate shape, meaning that it has taken the form of a rugby ball, or American football.

    Searing heat is stripping away layers of the gas, whose mass is then captured by the star.

    The disk of captured matter around the star may mask "a detectable resonant super-Earth," whose presence may cause WASP-12b to orbit in a remarkably egg-shaped path, suggests the study.

    Most planets that orbit close to their sun have a more circular track.

    The investigation is led by Shu-lin Li of the Department of Astronomy at the Peking University, Beijing.

    More than 400 so-called exoplanets -- the term for planets that orbit stars other than the Sun -- have been spotted since 1995, although none has turned out to be a rocky, watery world like our own.

    Most, like WASP-12b, are so-called "hot Jupiters," or huge gassy balls that are heated to scorching temperatures by proximity to their planets.

    A planet with water would have to inhabit what has been termed the Goldilocks Zone, meaning that it is not so close that its precious water evaporates nor so far that the water freezes, but somewhere in between so that water can exist in liquid form.
