Darn it, I hit you with a drunken smart ass smack down, and you come back with humility. Well, I think your affliction requires off-piste skiing. Seeking speed on featurless terrain suggests boredom. Groomers are as boring as counting bushels of BBs, my son thinks so and he's six years old and has only skied 8 days. Varible terrain and snow depth/consistancy, requires attention and mental processing which far exceeds that of gross speed over a smooth stretch of highway.
Go West young man! Sell the XJ and spend a winter in the Rocky Mountains (of course only Utah or Colorado will do
