Posted by Dylan in Canada, holidays.

Day 1:Today we have just arrived at Blue Mountain and it is -1!!!.The sun was shining and there was lots of people skiing. We had a look around the Village in Blue Mountain because my and Chloe don’t have ski school and we don’t have skis because we had to pick up our skis tomorrow.it was lovely and beautiful with all the snow.Then I had a good nights sleep.

Day 2:Today I had to wake up early because we had to hire our ski and then go to ski school.At ski school we got separated I was a Beginner.The slopes that I went on was kids camp,Big Baby and Enchanted Forest.For lunch I had Cheese on Toast and Chips.After we finished ski school we went back to our hotel.Before that we went skiing again.After that we went in the Hot Tub in our hotel then we had pizza for tea at the Fire Hall Pizza Co.Then I had a good nights sleep.

Day 3: Today I wake up early again because of ski school again.Today went I woke up my legs were killing me because my mum said I would find  muscles that I have never felt before and I did!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!Today it was cold.Today the slopes I went on were Glider,Easy Street,Graduate and Happy Valley(Blue run).A Green run=Easy(Manly what I went on).Blue run=Medium and Black run=Hard.Today we had to go from the South Base to the Village because all of the chair lifts wore closed because the snow was icy!!for tea we went to a pub called Yutoo.Then I had a good nights sleep.

Day 4:Today I could sleep in because I don’t have ski school Yaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa!!!!!!!!!!!!But I also went skiing with my family.It was poring with snow!!!!!When you went up the lifts by the time you get up the top you are filled with snow then at 12:00 we had luinch in the Irish pub, did some more skiing then drove home through the snow. A lot of the roads were closed so it took 1 1/2 longer to get home!!!!!!!!!!!

Hey Dylan.
You can change the post below (‘Hello, World!’) to your own title and words. It could be the introductory post. “Welcome to my Blog” sort of thing. Just click ‘Edit’. It might also be a good place to add in a bit about your trip to Canada so far eg losing luggage, wax museum, castles etc

If you want to find out about adding pictures, go to ‘Al Upton and the miniLegends’ blog (in your blogroll on the right – remember right-click) and click the ‘Gallery’ tab. There is a cool way to just click on small thumbnail pictures and they come up full size. It will be a wonderful way for us as we share across the waters. Remember not to use identifying information (address/phone number etc) and get your folks’ permission for any photos on the blog. It’s just like we did last year – be internet safe and savvy. I really hope your teacher and your class want to collaborate with the miniLegends. 🙂
I’ll be interested to see what you put in here and how your blog develops. Just ask for any help and share any ideas you have. Explore the miniLegends and your blog (and your ‘dashboard’) AND HAVE FUN!
Cheers, Al (Mr Upton)
