Q Breakfast presenter Cate Conway learns how to Ski at We are Vertigo

Ahead of a very exciting ski trip in February, Cate Conway took to the slops at We are Vertigo for some beginner ski lessons! 

The Q Radio Breakfast presenter had been feeling anxious and wanted to learn the ropes before heading off to Bulgaria. 

Cate headed to the We are Vertigo centre in Belfast and the legend himself, Eddie the Eagle was on hand to give Cate some top ski-ing tips. Eddie trained Cate with a one to one ski session. Eddie aka "Eddie the Eagle" (Michael "Eddie" Edwards) is the most loved British skier, who in 1988 became the first competitor since 1929 to represent Great Britain in Olympic ski jumping. 

Check out the pictures below to see how Cate's ski lesson went...

That's a high five from Eddie the Eagle!

By the end of the lesson, Cate had perfected her stance and was a pro in no time!

And of course there was time for a quick selfie....
