Skiing recurred again. We were on a slightly faster slope for most of the time, and it had a few scary bumps at places, but I'm really enjoying it. With speed, I was not turning as much as I wanted, but the guy said it was actually quite good. When the man said I could, I skiied across two slopes (they run side by side) and continued the turn to stop, essentially my worry before was simply a lack of room.
Apparently I'm not quite over my skis though, and am leaning back a little. Not a massive amount, but enough to mean that my thighs are quite sore right now.
It's good fun, am looking forward to the snow.
