It's skiing, even when it sucks its fun.
When the snow sucks, I ski switch more, I try to make every little bump a jump, I spin the whole way down ala ski ballet, I take runs at full speed (I mean if the snow sucks, the hill is empty), I run stupid drills where you hold your poles like a lunch tray, I ski with one ski, I hit the park, I ski with a camera and try to take shots while moving, I attempt moguls, I run slalom around whatever debris/lift towers/gapers/bare spots I can turn into gates, when it gets really bare I see how many bare spots I can jump over, I'll pretend that death cookies are a puck and my poles are a hockey stick. I think I am going to start skiing with two different skis on my feet, hell maybe two different boots.
I'll borrow friend's snowboards. If I ever get tele gear, I'll learn to do that. Maybe if I get bored with tele, I'll go one leg tele the other alpine.
Just be real light hearted about the whole thing and try to be as creative as possible
(Can you tell I'm from the East Coast, where we have lots of bad days??)
