Out of School Sports


Name: Dylan Jackson

Grade: 11th

What out of school sport do you do?

I ski.

When did you first start getting into skiing?

My first time skiing was in 3rd grade. My brother and my mom always skied together and one day they asked me to go and I was like “heck ya!” It wasn’t until we got our house at 7 springs in 8th grade that I became obsessed with skiing.

What’s your favorite part of going skiing?

I have many favorite parts it’s hard to chose. I would say that one thing is that brings me back time after time is the people. Whether its my friends, the workers, or my family, everyone is just happy and we just want to ski and have a good time. Also the fresh air is great!

Do you have a favorite memory?

A memory that sticks out to me is the first time I went skiing I got a lesson and halfway through I was bored so I skied away from it and my family always called me “ski school dropout” and we always get a good laugh out of that.

How often do you ski?

I ski quite a bit, basically just any time we go up to our house in seven springs or when I go with friends.

Do you plan on skiing a lot in your future? Do you see yourself going anywhere with it?

As much as I love skiing I don’t see a future with it. I’ll still ski for fun on occasions when I grow up. My main goal has always been to move south and fish a ton!

Is there anything else you would like to add?

Skiing is a ton of fun and a great way to spend the winter season. I highly suggest going if your interested.
