Skiing music?

post #1 of 35
Thread Starter 
Anybody besides me like to listen to a little music to get pumped before going out? I don't think it's exactly safe to be listening while skiing, (although there are quite a few schmos on my hill doing that) but I love a little System of a Down to get me going in the morning. Also helps with rythim for me if I think of a favorite song.

I love a little Tom Petty the morning of a powder day.

Zac,
Don't worry, it's not bad. What is bad is when you become like me and start repeating your own posts.

They say that when you get old three things go.
1. Your mind
2. Your co-ordination

With nearly 4000 posts I think you're bound to repeat yourself.

For me its looking like the Best of the Corrs. This thing has over 8,000 km and still going strong. Sweet tunes by sweet ladies. And sure this has been done many times over, but are you listening to the same tunes as last year? Don't worry there rookie, most of us here are just old, hungover, or just jonsing for snow.

Pink Floyd for powder days. Pow has that weird floaty feel just like the music.

I like music........many different types of music. I never thought about music for MY skiing before. I do like a lot of the music that you find on some of the ski videos.

Now, for what I don't like: I detest when I'm at the bottom of the lift area and the music is so loud it is difficult to have a conversation with my ski partner. What makes it worse is when you have to hear it all the way up the lift. One of the things I appreciate about skiing is the mountains, nature, natural beauty. All those things enrich a day of skiing, but when these things are interferred with by blasting music, it puts a damper on my skiing enjoyment. I feel if you want to hear that kind of music, go home and crank up your stereo or go to a concert. I came here to ski, not have someone else's music interests bombarded upon my senses!

Anyone else feel similarly?

My feelings exactly. I like music on the way, I like music on the way back. I DO NOT like the fact that my resort has music blasting out of loudspeakers on top of the main lodge, and a small shack at the peak.

Well said, so agree.

While listening to some AC/DC, Ozzy, RATM, or Metallica in the lodge while booting up is a great way to start a days skiing, so too are the peaceful sounds of a ski area in action...shivs whirring, the sounds of happy skiers laughing, ice being bashed off lift towers, the squeak of skis on snow, zippers being adjusted, gates being bashed....and then best of all, the deafening silence of the back-country.

National Coma by the Drop Nineteens



I saw this in a CD store and couldn't resist an album with moguls on the front & a frozen skier on the back. It even has moguls on the CD.

I like listening to the Counting Crows and Big Head Todd while I'm tuning skis at night. But on the way to the mountain or before a race I like to listen to more agressive music such as Desturbed, Limp Bisket, Sum 41, so on and so forth. It really gets your blood pumping for an excellent day of skiing.

I like to listen to bukana. They are a fantastic scottish band taking influence from counting crows, beatles, hendrix, ben folds ... so their stuff fills just about every pre-ski hole there is!

Oh, come now, FlipFlopFly.. Who are you to dictate when and where on the mountain you should suddenly stop and have a meaningful conversation with your ski partner just because you feel like having a conversation, what makes you so certain that your partner wants one as well? Has it ever occurred to you that your ski partner probably finds it equally perturbing when you persistently try to interrupt his/her enjoyment of his/her favourite toons by yapping about a load of boring, repititous superlatives about this run and that run in his/her ear lugs. If you feel that strongly about it, why don't you arrange with your ski partner to ski your different ways. You can have the uninterrupted pleasure of enjoying natures surroundings and your ski partner can have the uninterrupted pleasure of enjoying his/her music and natures surroundings and not having to listen to your ear-bashing. I always ski with my walkmans and it certainly doesn't interfere with my appreciation of the mountains natural surroundings. It doesn,t interfere with my skiing ability, it doesn,t compromise my ski safety and as far as I know (nobody has brought it to my attention) my music doesn,t disturb ski colleagues. Lighten up, FlipFlopFly, and live and let live.

Nice to hear you agree Maximus!

And I can't say I blame you.

This is easy. . .

"Jesus Built my Hotrod" - Ministry.

If THAT doesn't get you moving you must be ready for planting.

Hey, and I'm a darn near 40 y/o skier. Not a young rider!!!!

excellent idea!

I've been searching my P2P for something. Today, I had White/Rob Zombie, Jack Johnson, Sublime, Incubus, Lords of Acid, Ben Harper, Bob/Ziggy Marley, etc.

While fun and pumping, not really ski music.

Yeah, I need to. I only feel about 18 anyway. It's when I look at my kids (and bills) that I get jerked back into reality.

Darn nice to know that others in the local area are intelligent enough to know good music!!

Stick around Opie, hope to meet you on the hill! [img]graemlins/thumbsup.gif[/img]

I hear ya. I'll be at Copper and Breck Wed-Friday and at Copper on Sunday again. If you plan to be in the area, come join us for a run and/or beer Just PM me.

I just have to add one more name to the list and it might surprise some -- it did me -- that it's good music to ski to...

William Topley / Blessing

WAKE UP!

Old School for sure ... 1964, The Byrds

"Turn, Turn, Turn" ... still works for me.

I just came across this new band from LA called Delinquent Habits. The CD isn't out yet, I don't think... but they have a website, delinquenthabits.com,with some of their videos. Their music is pretty tight and will be cool to ski to. Y'all should check it out and let me know whatcha think!!!!

If you want to ski agressively Rammstein is pretty good. But in German not English.
post #28 of 35
I'm sayin' dub, breakbeat, metal, and of course... punk. Can't listen to Pennywise without getting amped. they even played at the vegas ski show, cause they're so much a part of skiing.
post #29 of 35
I like listening to the Dead, or some mellow techno. It helps me relax, which is crucial to skiing.
post #30 of 35
Last time I went skiing alone I brought with me my wife MP3 player...
With Cheryl Crow "The globe Session Tour" loaded.
I don't like hyperboles, so, I will say that I enjoyed it.
