As the chairlift swung around the top of the hill at Snow Valley Ski Club in Edmonton, Amber Grant was nervous. She had snowboarded before but this was only her second time on skis in recent memory, and chairlifts intimidated her.
She had been coached by Vieri Berretti, her instructor, on how to get on and off the chair, but it still felt foreign to her. Several of the other women in her class who were riding the chair up with her shared her feelings. And so, as they prepared to stand and slide away, they all joined hands and rose together.
“We automatically just held each other’s hands,” Grant recalls. “Vieri was laughing, and saying it was very cute.”
