Well I survived Snowboarding in Utah last month with no broken bones so that's a bonus! I'm definitely not a die hard addict, I think a few days every couple of years is more than enough for me :)

Today I went skiing at Klosters-Davos. The weather was sunny, but windy on top of the summit. There were quite a few other people, but not too many. The snow was also really good. There was a Ski-Cross track with LOTS of bunny hops, which give you nice airtime! There were several Bunny Hops in a row and that several times!
I had a cool day.

I'm so glad I didn't get a pass this year. It's been beyond terrible. Barely any snow.

I went skiing a month ago. I found it one of the hardest, most painful experiences of my life. I couldn't walk my feet hurt so bad (Maybe, I'm a wimp ;) )
It's also very hard to put on one of your skis while the other is sliding off. :lol:
I found it hard to stop, and I fell down about 12 times.
Eventually, I gave up. Certainly not something for me.
But, I can see why some enjoy it as a hobby!

I used to ski all the time, both downhill and freestyle. Terrain parks were my source of thrills during the amusement park offseason.

Since moving to a much warmer part of the country, I haven't gone for a couple of years. I need to get back into it.

I love donkeys more than me.

I usually do a trip to Tahoe each year in March but I didn't this year. I didn't even buy the Snowbomb Pass like I have other years. Now I'm glad I didn't. I got lucky the two times I hit the slopes this season that the snow was "good enough" - Badger Pass in December and Bear Mountain/Snow Summit (Big Bear) on Super Bowl Sunday. I also got comped tickets both times: Birthday ticket at Badger Pass and I won a ticket from KROQ for Bear Mountain.

It seems like the last few seasons have been bad here in CA except for right after a storm. This year, though, it was bad for the whole West. I met people from Calgary, Canada a week ago that said there was hardly any snow there this season and that it has been in the 60s there recently. Global Climate Change may be finally having a toll on our ski seasons unfortunately. :cry:

I just started school in Utah this year. I picked up skiing and it's amazing here! I'd been skiing before, but never like on mountains like the ones in Utah. Unfortunately it was a pretty bad season so I only went a few times, but I'd definitely love to get even more into it in the future. Perhaps I'll travel around and try out different spots in the country. Take this with the knowledge that I haven't skied much outside of Utah, but IMO it's the best place in the US to ski. The snow is incredible and the resorts are great.
