Zen is within. You can bring Zen into the mountains with you, but there is no Zen already there, for "Zen" means "Spirit of the Valley"

So when you go flow from turn to turn carving beautiful arcs in the snow on a desserted trail with your new 12 meter (radius) slalom skis, reaching ever farther out into the fluffy nothingness with your feet, feeling for the narrowing limits of speed, edge grip and control, remember: the Zen is within. It is your center. Finding it is not always a quick journey, but loosing it can be.

Put simply, "Faster and faster until the thrill of speed overcomes the fear of death"

THAT is Zen.

Get ready for snow, folks. Its gonna be a great season!
