If Aliens Exist - Do They Ski?

post #1 of 29
Thread Starter 

This has been a topic of conversation all summer at SkiEssentials.com, so we decided we'd put it on our blog and see what the general public thinks.  If aliens exist, do they ski?  Click the image below to read our "Totally Legitimate" Investigative Report then leave your comments either on the blog or right here in this thread!

That depends who is President come ski season. I'm pretty sure most aliens will be heading for non-skiing climes if Trump wins the election. Oh wait you mean the other aliens... 

 

(This post was meant to be sarcastic, please don't start a political war in here).

I don't know nuttin' about space aliens, but I always wondered what it would be like to have a Star Trek holodeck so that I could ski every day on the best snow and terrain.  In fact I would like to make the snow warm, so I could wear shorts and a T-shirt in deep powder.  If it's all a hologramish sort of thing, why not?  Uncut every run, all day.  Sort of like heli skiing, but at home.

 

Aliens would be welcome.

Aliens definitely exist and they do ski. I use to work for one.

 

Never wore a hat. It could be 7 below zero, blowing like stink and there he would be, no hat, sunglasses plastered with rime trudging along on a control route.

 

I asked someone what was the deal, they said, "yeah on his home planet it is much colder than here".

Silly question.  Some Earthling named Drake developed an equation that addresses this question.  You honestly think you may be the only species that can have fun on a planet with snow?

Not here if their mountains are bigger and better. 

 

They are more likely to ski than play golf.

That is a fantastic idea!

She was the ex of the IL senatorial candidate that ran against Barack Obama,  in his first election.

Jack Ryan would have crushed BO, but the press got his divorce proceedings opened.

Turns out Jack was a little kinky.  The press ran with it and he dropped out of the race.

 

I would have voted for him, for that alone.

I never detected any Jack Ryan kinky-ness in any of Clancy's books.

Who needs Seven of Nine when you have a holodeck?

Aliens exist and they definitely do ski.

But, since they have gravity defying know - how, (developed for their intergalactic travel), their skis are equipped with the same technology so they ski UPHILL only.
They have special ski lifts which then take them DOWNHILL.

Ocassionally they fight in the lift queues, but this is solely for the purpose of keeping them worm, thus preventing them from cooling down too much between the runs.

How cool would skiing in a low gravity environment be?  

 

What wax for Mars' polar ice cap?  High fluoro for CO2 ice?  

 

High deuterium snow on Mars - would heavy water make heavy snow?  "In March 2015, a team of scientists published results showing that the polar cap ice is about eight times as enriched with deuterium, heavy hydrogen, as water in Earth's oceans."

 

Maybe Volant can be revived to make stainless steel skis with both the top and bottom made of metal.

Without  a doubt. However, the more important question is whether Ancient Aliens taught our ancestors how to ski thus making them more proficient hunters in areas where snow covered the landscape. 

 

 

 

 

I expect to see an episode on this topic.....

South Park assumed that aliens ski....

Sure they exist. Lots of them come to Park City. They're lousy skiers. Around town you can tell they left their brains on the home planet, or in the mother ship.

So you're saying they can float on top of powder on 65 mm skis?

Precisely that!
Furthermore, they don't need any heavy, dump skis in order to ski the crud. All their skis are feather light. So instead of busting through the crud, they just glide over it effortlessly.
The material they utilise for ski production is that "liquid metal" stuff, a technology that we've seen demoed in the new, improved, version of "Terminator 2".
So when they come accross some frozen potatoes, the never need slowing down. Their skis just turn into a liquid, thus conforming to the surface, glide over it so smoothly as if it's the finest Japanese pow, and then assume a solid form again - once the surface becomes smooth.

That's why you never see any aliens with knee problems wink.gif

I guess since they float on top of the powder aliens don't get face shots.  A sad state of affairs.  2D skiing all the time.

Maybe they can turn the 0 gravity thing down a little. That could be a really good technology

Well noted! smile.gif Of course they can.
It's adjustable. Otherwise they would never be able to land on any planet.

It's like driving a very fast car - just because it can do 200+ mph, doesn't mean you can't drive it at 10mph, if the mood takes you. Or even come to a hault. The 0 gravity tech gives you choices!

So on the contrary - instead of skiing in 2D, they actually ski in 4D! biggrin.gif

Aliens do not exist but they do ski.

Aliens seem to arrive on planes and get in our liftlines, particularly during holidays. They are loud, pushy, have no grasp of the Responsibility Code, use their ski poles to point at things while standing in crowds, walk in crowded areas swinging their arms with said poles without regard to where the tips are sailing around, stand in packs clogging critical junctions discussing where Bobby is, etc. There seem to be more of them every year. They need to work harder on blending in and not being so obvious.

They're from Alberta:D.

The real question is "Do most of them use 8 skis or 6 skis and two ski poles?"

They are so lucky either way!

 

Carvers cruisers and fatties all at once. Wonder how they pair them up, powder boards to the outside perhaps?

 

This offers so many possibilities. 

 

Wonder if they portal into Skinwalker Ranch when they want to do the Wasatch? 

post #29 of 29

I wonder if they just used saucers like the round sled thingeses. Also what if they sand skied, any ways if they have drugs then anything would have happened.
