    Will Get Better Next Year

    Living in Minnesota, you just have to be involved in some kind of winter sports. I've been playing hockey and snowboarding since I was just a kid. A few years ago, I started to ski. Not really crazy about cross country, though, it's just not me. Besides, I just love how...

    Just spent two days in the mountains skiing.

    What made this trip better than any other is that now my kids are old enough to ski with me. We stuck to the easiest green and I loved having company on the ski lift. My hubby doesn't ski, so he was our ski concierge. He dropped us off close, brought up snacks to the base...

    Ya Think???

    I started skiing at age 10. Not early but not late. I grew up in a non skiing family and being the oldest of 6 we were not rolling in money. However, my very wonderful and supportive parents saw to it that my strong interest in skiing was given the means to grow and see where it...

    Around Wa State..

    There are some great hills and places to go...but having to check and see if it might rain (!!!) on the mountain before you head up? That is just not right! I miss the Rockies!

    My First Time

    Picture this: Circa 1991.  I was on a swim scholarship and our coach banned us from skiing.  As soon as I got out of school, some friends of mine took me up to the mountain for my first ski weekend.  Lucky me, I trusted them and they took me to the top of the...

    A Long Journey

    I had two boyfriends try and teach me to ski. I just COULD NOT get it. I stormed off the slopes both times....in total frustration. Then my husband taught my 8, 6 and 5 year olds how to ski. I thought "How hard can it REALLY be, if they can do it????" I took...

    Skiing Is the Bomb

    I love to ski. I'm not professional about it. But skiing is the bomb. The best part of skiing is standing at the top of a slope (top of the mountain sometimes) and looking out at the expanse spreading out around around you. You feel so disconnected from all of your problems and a...

    Skiing Vs Watching Wwe

    I currently live in Florida. There is not much skiing in Florida. I have never been to a live WWE show, but until recently, I watched it all the time on TV and I watched about 1/2 of the pay per views on DVD. I lost count of the number of matches I seen where I waited in vain for...

    My ability level is where I want it to be.

    I went skiing with my cousin the other day and we were doing some fairly steep trees with powder, and I made it down fairly well. As long as I don't lose the line I'm trying for I am pretty good.
