Could you please check these sentences for me, please? Thank you.


1) This morning we met an American couple living in Munik. They had an eight-year-old girl and were very friendly to us.
2) Their daughter does the same ski group course as our son (also she is in the same group course as our son).
They (our son and she) get on well with each other.
3) We took the chair lift up (the mountain) and we spent the whole morning skiing.
4) We didn't have time to rest (or for a rest) and when we arrived back at our hotel we were exhausted.
My son has learned how to ski (with parallel skis: I don't know how to express this).
5)Before that (?? a week ago) he could only snowplough. (Can you say: he could only turn snowplough???)
6) I tried on a pair of ski boots but they were too tight.
I decided to do cross-country skiing ( to go cross-country skiing??)
I need to find an example with "to run on skis/skiing".

    By the way beginners are taught to "snowplow", controlling their speed and direction by weight shifts with the tips of the skis together and the tails apart. Skiing parallel comes later in the training in most ski schools.

    The phrase "run on skis" is something I have not heard but have only read in very old historical accounts.
