First time Skiing: Liberty Mountain

So I skied for the first time in my life on Sunday, it was a fun experience. I went to Liberty Mountain in Carroll Valley, PA, which is about an hour and a half from where I live. I know how to ice skate, so picking up skiing isn't too bad.

I made it through the beginner courses fairly easily, but the intermediate course totally kicked my @$$. I must've fallen at least 15-20 times during the trip, which averages about 3-4 times per intermediate course.

One thing I really noticed is that I can sharply turn left really well, but not turning right. That's because people only ice skate counter clockwise in most places.

Overall it was fun; I plan on going back more often, now that I know how close it is, as soon as my body stops being sore...

Why Utah? There're plenty of places on the East Coast that you can drive to, about 5 hrs from Raleigh, where you can just get a local motel for a night, such a hassle to go all the way to Utah.
