I'm usually pretty good at most things, but I could NOT ski. I had reconstruction on my right knee and I just couldn't keep my feet in alignment. My right leg kept going off in all kinds of different directions. The last time I crashed, I fell awkwardly and felt my knee almost blow out. After that, I took off my skis and walked to the bottom of the mountain. It was kind of funny because I was right by the ski lift and was so embarassed about walking down the mountain, I kept looking at my ski and moving the clip where your feet click in pretending it was broken.
My buddy I was with told me the slope we were on was too hard for a beginner so that made me feel a little bit better.
*edit* spelling and grammar.
