What do You want as a skier?

post #1 of 14
Thread Starter 
Hello EpicSkiers!

I was wondering if everyone could help list a bunch of ideas for what skiers want?

The idea could be anything that you would want! The first thought(s) that comes to mind.

Lets see how many we could come up with....

Thanks in advance,
Alex

The body of a 25-year old World Cup skier (instead of my 53-year old bag of bones).

Cold temps, soft fresh snow, no lift lines, cheap food and beverages at the resort, unlimited strength and finess. Perfect timing and grace, no fear.Goggles like this guy has:, great ski buddys,unlimited funds to enjoy the whole never ending season, cheap air fare, great accomodations, ENOUGH ALREADY!

Seriously....

Outside of fantasy land, what do you expect or want of yourself this coming ski season?

What goals do you have?

What do you want to accomplish on the mountain this year?

First Goal - don't break anything this year!

After breaking my leg (tibia plateau fracture) in Nov. and my ankle (bilaterally) in Jan., both while skiing, my first goal is to be injury free this season. Second goal is to recover the freedom I have always felt as a skier, not to be overly concerned about falling, being run into, or going fast. Third goal, since I have been using Skier's Edge all summer, is to have better technique on the steeps. Fourth goal, to ski powder as much as possible. Main goal, to have fun!!!!!

I'd love to have tons of cash to ski all over the world. But ultimately, it would be enough just to have more time to ski.

Preaching to the choir, but after 40 consecutive seasons I'm here to testify that ski fever can have beneficial effects on overall health. Just the thought of my precious few annual ski days is enough to motivate me to pursue a moderate, if sporadic fitness regimen throughout the rest of the year. The pride and joy of laying down a few well linked turns keeps me pushing through many an off-season swim, jog or bike ride. A couple years ago as I readied for an early season ski trip to Colorado, every climb on the local bike trail induced my exercise mantra, "first day at altitude."

Just got back from a bike ride. First thought was, "the next time I put on a helmet it will be a ski helmet!" It was 85 degrees in Los Angeles today and next week we will be skiing in CO.

First ride of the summer where I felt absolutely no knee pain at start-up - a red letter day for me!
