Skiing/snowboarding myths and misconceptions...anybody want to play?
Can you think of ski myths or misconceptions that you'd most like to debunk? Doesn't matter whether about skiing in general, something specific to your area, or gear, technique, instruction, conditions, etc. This could be informative.
Here are a couple obvious ones for starters:
1. You don't have to be especially athletic to enjoy skiing. Good intermediate-advanced skiing is about rhythm and balance.
2. There is decent Eastern skiing south of New England. In fact there are approximately 40 operating ski areas in the Southeastern USA from Pennsylvania to Alabama, some with terrain and ski season lengths on par with mid-sized New England hills. These ski areas are good "feeders" for resorts in the rest of the country.
