First rule of skiing....

post #1 of 16
Thread Starter 

In in a mental place where it doesn't take much to humor me so I cracked up when I saw this, even though I'd seen it before.

It sort of reminds me of how I was taught to ski by my boyfriend back in the 80's.

 

Please share some of your light hearted thoughts on the first rule of skiing.

Love that scene top of KT22 (actually chute 75) stood there many a time thinking of that very scene. Snorted me some sierra cement and dropped in. Gives a whole new meaning to brain freeze, slurpees got nothing on a big pile of freshies.

This one was created by a friend: Don't stop skiing until your skis do.

Think about it.

I HOPE THOSE WHO HAD BOYFRIENDS WHO GAVE THEM THIS ADVICE SURVIVED THE ATTEMPT AND LIVED ON TO SLAP HIM SILLY AT THE END OF THE DAY.

THIS IS A GREAT SUMMARY OF WHAT IS ACTUALLY GOING ON IN OUR SPORT.  POINT AND SHOOT IS WHAT I CALL IT!  IT IS NOT SURPRISING THAT ONLY 13% OF
THOSE WHO TRY OUR SPORT RETURN TO TRY IT A SECOND TIME.

Look where you're going, not where you've been.

Thought of another one, courtesy of an instructor at Steamboat some years ago.

 

First rule of tree skiing:

 

You do not ski the trees, you ski the spaces in between the trees!
