Everything that has been said and more!
Things I love include:
Views from top of mountains (I live in Ontario = really small hills)
Feeling of everything else seeming small and insignificant for the time being
That instance when all of your mechanics come together and you seem to be skiing on autopilot - just along for the ride
Wife and I loving a season that others in Toronto loathe
Roaring fire after a day on the slopes
Pushing yourself to the limit and smiling all the way
Crashing after a great day on the slopes and...
This might be because I am a patroller - helping those who can't help themselves. There is no better feeling than being able to comfort and help people who injure themselves on the slopes - I think it gives people peace of mind and helps them return to skiing once they have healed.
Keep the love of skiing alive!
