Oh that's right, the person was a big fat fibber. You corrected me and say it was far too difficult and I may as well not try it.

Because I was expressing my feelings about skiing on a skiing forum. You instead choose to insult somebody you don't even know and said nothing about skiing. So my question is, why are you posting in this thread?

Well, in a few years when my knees are even more tender and my bones are frail I'll probably only go out and play in the cushy stuff. For now it's a little powder in the AM when available (not much out this way) and cruising fast on hard or bumps the rest of the day. FWIW, when I ski out West I still prefer to only ski the POW early and only for about two or three hours a day. It's much better before light has been on it too long IOM. BTW, those old frail days are probably only a decade away for me.

Because I ski bumps and I listen to music while skiing bumps.

Tru Dat! I used to not even bucke my top buckles in the bumps. I still don't like them tight, but that's just how I prefer to ski

Skiing with isolating/noise cancelling earphones is awesome. Don't do it in the bumps but carving on groomers. No noise, no vibration - sweet.

I must admit, when I skied in Utah, I tried to avoid bumps. In Pennsylvania, skiing bumps is often the most fun option.

 After listening to a story by some other bears, about Lyle Lovett and his appearance at Aspen.  I downloaded some Lyle Lovett tunes and have really gotten a kick out of it.

If you turn this into a flame, then your post will be reported, deleted, and I'll flame you back until you are nothing but ashes!!!


This thread is..............
What music do you listen to that gets your mojo going in the moguls?

Does it depend on the line?
Does it depend on the ski style of the bumper?
Is it a good learning tool for someone who just can't seem to get the rhythm?

You mean Sony?  Dang, back in the late 80's that was DA BOMB!  Now kids are like "what is a cassette"?  "You mean when you were a kid there weren't remote controls and you actually had to get up everytime you wanted to change the channel??!??!  HOW DID YOU LIVE LIKE THAT!!".
