Why am I writing about skiing? Now? At the end of March? Well, there is still plenty of snow around in some places and at least three of my students have gone skiing this week!  I confess, I have never been skiing so I have done my best to find the essential English you need for a ski trip including what to pack clothes wise and more. If you have already been skiing I hope you enjoy this!

If you are going skiing be careful and wear a helmet and if you aren’t you can still dream you are skiing like in a James Bond 007 mountain snow ski chase!
