Win A Pair of Dynastar Skis and Lange Boots - Page 5
Actually, I'm going to withdraw all my prior entries in favor of:
"Neither Rime Nor Reason"
Common sense is overcome by the desire to ski, in even the worst conditions.
(With an acknowledged tip of the hat, and posthumous apologies, to Shakespeare)
Pukin' n' Nukin'
Oh, The Places You'll Ski!
Subtitle might be "An epic struggle between work, love, and sick powder days." Or the Pukin' n' Nukin' subtitle could be "A strange, epic tale of a gastroenterologist's tireless quest for bottomless powder"
Just couldn't narrow it down to one title.
HIS DREAMS OF PURPLE MOUNTAINS MAJESTY TURNED INTO A NIGHTMARE OF ROWS AND ROWS OF GREEN CORN
the continuing saga of one skier's fight to keep his sanity living on the Great Plains
Have to say, my favorite "ski movie" is Better of Dead! But the title for my "life of skiing" would be depicted in "Snow King, Snow Queen - Time Share" which covers twenty years of affordible ski vacations with a wide variety of mostly complete strangers from various parts of the country during week five at Killington! We have gotten to know many characters at the condo that sleeps 10 and sometimes 20 when we have both sides of the unit! But the thing that brings us together every year, is a shared love of Snow, whether skiing or boarding!
Cancel the Cold Addiction quote, this one describes my ski life more succinctly.
"STEEP OR DEEP - TAUNTING AND TEASING GRAVITY."
Title Entry: Watch This! – An EPIC Skiing Odyssey
A story of a steadily growing and maturing obsession with all things related to skiing. The comedy (and fun) aspects are embodied in the “Watch This!” sentiment –- Just when you think you know something and try to do something impressive, you get humbled. On a more serious note, for me, skiing is becoming an odyssey that is defining how and where I want to live my life. I am making plans to facilitate and accommodate my skiing needs until I am a very old man. Skiing makes me whole and completes me.
And I could use some more Dynastar skis – maybe the Distorters? My skiing career, such that it is, has been mostly on Dynastar skis. They just feel better to me. Currently, I have several Legend 4800s and an Omecarve 10 (yes, the quiver needs updated). It would make a nice birthday present in a few days. Sometimes I miss my Dynastar Legend 8000 and even my Max Three’s (remember those?), but they are long gone.
Would have to be "The Blizzard pf AAHHH's" 1988.This represents the heyday of my best ski years. Young, single, in good shape, not a care in the world. The skiing was fantastic, the outfits loud, colorful and outrageous. The beginning of what has become "Extreme" and "Freeskiing". Pioneers like, Plake, Shmidt and Stump. My buddies and I thought we were hot skiers, maybe we were. Looking back, to paraphrase something Warren Miller once said, " If you think your a better skier now than you where 20 years ago, you probably weren't a very good skier 20 years ago". Skiing is still my life and now I share it with my son. "Daddy needs a new pair of boots and skis". I think I finally earned it.
It is better for the snow to have fallen and experienced the Storms of Adventure than to have lived where the sun always shines. The Storms of Adventure have led to a greater intensity and earnestness in my life - and have refined my character along the way. There is a certain glory that can only be experienced through Storms of Adventure on and off Piste.
