Skiing

Recommended Posts

Expensive? Around my neck of the woods, you can rent all the gear, get a busride to the mountain and a lift ticket for around 50$. Which reminds me I need to get off my ass and git to the mountain. Skiing > Snowboarding

It's crazy expensive. I think my ticket alone at Steamboat was 80 bills. Add 300 dollar pants, a 550 dollar board, 250 dollar boots and 250 dollar bindings. 80 dollar gloves. 120 dollar goggles. Gas money.

 

 

Bank!

I started skiing when I was about 6 years old, and did it until I was about 16. I'm starting to miss it a lot.... but I'm in the same boat as I.C. Shadow on the shitty knees tip.

oh yeah, I just went snowboarding Saturday to a mountain in NC which was a complete waste of time. I should have just driven a couple more hours and gone to Snowshoe WV. :hatred:

One of the largest sporting good stores around here just went out of business and I copped a shit load of gear for about 75% off.

 

I haven't been skiing since I was a kid... But, I board a few times each winter month.

thats a pretty smart idea....to bad I don't have a laptop yet

and totally agree about after going to Vermont that everything in the east mid atlantic is totally depressing

Killington is by far the best I have ever been to

Well, I started sking young. Then when I was in middle school snowboarding was coming up, and I was like "Well thats way cooler." And I got into snowboarding. Then I moved away from the Rockies, and I kinda stopped all together. I was going to start again this year, but I busted my knee pretty good and it wont be happening this year at all. My current debate is when I actually get back up there, which do I do? Ski/Snowboard? Either way, I have no gear anymore, so its kinda open. Say wrd.

i went skiing when i was 16.

i spent a lot of time on my arse and fucked myself up alot...

 

one of my more comical falls involved me skidding to avoid a young kid, hitting a patch of ice or a rock so my course was altered. ended up flying over a little jump, took off and flew straight into a huge floodlight. i was so high, i cleared the 6ft of padding and clattered into the pole and fell back to earth where upon landing i knocked myself out and popped the shoulder out too.

 

i woke up in a body bag / stretcher sliding down a hill and had to find my way back from the doctors surgery to my hotel without speaking french or knowing the way...

 

...sure as hell wasnt the best way to spend the day of my 16th birthday as a kid but i did get a lot of sympathy beers that night!

 

i had a fucking great time on that holiday all things considered!
