Today, I started lessons on snowboarding. As soon as I got to the top of the hill, my instructor pushed me saying, "Just believe, it'll come to you!" He said this just before I hit a tree, breaking my nose. FML

if you're paying him to instruct, it would probably be a good idea for him to actually instruct. I remember when I went skiing last year, it was 10 years after I last went skiing which was when I was 8. I told my instructor I didn't know how to turn and they were like "yes you do!" I was like "no I don't I can't remember!" Then they went off without me so I followed, and what do you know, first corner, just went straight into a massive pile of snow and my skis broke. if it was the second corner it would have been a cliff.

Me and my dad learned together, we believed in each other and started by shitting ourselves when we went on the bunny slope… but its a great sport and I love it

OP probably started on the bunny hill, every ski hill I've gone to there were trees on the sides of the bunny hill. Personally, Im finding this story a little exaggerated. I believe that the OP broke their nose, but i dont think the instructor did what was said. Im an instructor, and while we do the course to become a certified instructor, they say very clearly that the safety of others is in your hands, and if they get hurt its your fault. you can get into serious trouble, fired, and/or even banned from the ski hill.
