Quitskiing with tunes on a while ago after getting stuck upside down in a treewell between Shadows and Closet at Steamboat. The volume somehow got turned up when I went in and it was so freakin loud. Couldn't get my arms unstuck for about four minutes. Zeplin it was, Dazed and Confused.
Now I just listen to the lifts squeak, the goofey girls singing or screaming, people in the lift lines yaking,
The best is silence of the powder, or the squeak of the snow under your skis on a real cold day. Or the wind through the tree branches as you ski past. I could go on.
