Skiing Music - Page 3

post #61 of 162

Odd that ya'll have missed some of the greatest instumental music of all time. Most of these were solid chart hits in the 60's and 70's and remain popular replays today.


These were all about skiing.......................


Walk Don't Run



Out Of limits (possibly the best)





post #62 of 162

Bit of a bump, but thought those who have been posting songs about skiing might get a kick out of this one, one of my favorites to listen to on the drive up to the resort.

Found one about snowboarding, Freshies by Keller Williams. 


The word traverse is what I like to avoid,
My hobbies include popping ollies off an asteroid.
Felling the flow of the snow as we go,
The sun makes you blush in the slush,
you should know.
Fifty on the nose,
Trim nails on the toes,
Full charge on the pod,
when it dies it blows,
like the wind,
Again and again,
It's stingin my nerve ends,
the chills they send,
and the bend in my knee,
it makes me see,
this could be free,
if you hike up the trees,
Use them as a hand-hold brave and bold,
in the cold,
so I'm told.

Floatin' on the freshies

Use 'em as a hand-hold brave and bold,
You know it's not my thing,
too much work that it brings,
stick me on a lift,
stick a lighter in my fist,
I'm fightin for the flame it becomes a game,
pull jacket over brain,
works magic like David Blaine.

Levitatin, elevatin , glass box vegetatin,
Simulate, stimulate,
Distract yourself from the constant straight,
Goofy-footed, poofy hooded,
Left side as I'm shootin through the trees,
Just like the breeze,
As I'm floatin on the freshies.

Floatin on the Freshies

I think classical can be most inspiring!

Boom, Boom, Pow -- by the Black Eyed Peas.  That about skiing, right?

post #66 of 162

I've always like the Jane Siberry tune The Sky is So Blue.  Not totally about skiing, but this verse is:


We're going to the mountains
If there's still a little snow
Gonna do some spring-skiing
Go as fast as we can go
Give instructions from the chairlift
And tell all those tourists to go for it
See the shorts and t-shirts
Go whizzing through the trees
With their Hollywood sunglasses
And the scratches on their knees
Yodelling on the mountainside
And cutting the air like chickadees

I like those lyrics a lot better than the ones I posted. Good stuff. :) She's Canadian eh?

post #68 of 162

there's a blue rodeo song called 'dark angel'. at one point the lyrics go, "so colorado is the place i have to go, i heard a rumour she loves the mountains and the snow."


always makes me think of skiing, and dumb and dumber.

Yeah, that sounded right but I thought I'd confirm.  Born in Toronto 1955, changed her name to Issa in 2006.

John Mayer
I believe there was a big thread about this a few years back.

Although its not really skiing music, Tom Petty has always reminded me of skiing. Here's the story... my friend's mom played it in the car the entire trip to and from Discovery Basin the first time I had the privalege of skiing there. Later during my college years in Butte, Disco was my home area. Now that I live far away and only ski there maybe once or twice a year, I still feel like it is my home resort and it is still one of my favorite places to ski. So I wouldn't recommend Tom Petty for others, but it does the trick for me! :-)
