How old were you when you began skiing?

If, for some reason, you're not sure how to answer - "I first skied when I was three but not again till I was 30," then the answer to the poll question is "16 and a-half."
No, it isn't. Use your discretion.

Good question, Ryan. I hope you get a big response.

I hope so, too. So I hope Bears will be understanding when I DO occassionally bump this up from time to time over the summer toward the actual beginning of ski season, when there's more likely a larger sample group.

In true Bears response to polls, I must find fault. There was not option for womb skiing. I was born with a set of Rossis on, then smacked the doctor.

I started skiing about 7 years after I first discovered the joys of Apres-ski.

I am gonna try and teach my kids to ski before they can walk, that way they don't pick up any bad habits

My mother would get me out of bed by whispering, "Bobbie... skiing." And I'd be out of bed before I wake fully awake... in about of half second. Problem with this is, she'd do this on a school day too. I'd be out of bed before I knew it wasn't Saturday!

Acutally I was sent to Panama but when I returned from X-mas leave I was in for a surprise, I was reassigned to Alaska. However, the service did teach me one thing, make the best of what you have. So instead of sunny beachs, I got to ski.

It's October, snow is falling, and I'll BUMP this again next month.
