a skier's body language

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 
great skiers express so much emotion when they ski: I can totally feel what they are saying with the way they move their body, perhaps with arms way-extended, lots of strong calm presense, positions that are not strictly correct, but highly emotive: I see them express things like: This is total, awesome freedom; Speed is my god and she is with me now; Give me steeper 'cause I'm on it and I want it...

Do you project your feelings in certain body positions? have you seen something in a skier's position that expressed total stoke?

How about standing on the side of the trail leaning with my armpits on my poles panting like a dog!?!

or, getting back to the lift after finding a stash and smiling and laughing so much that every one follows you off the lift... this happened to me on sunday after 2 feet of powder fell

Hmmmm, like the difference between .........
Oh Sh!t! :
Whooo hooo!

Perhaps you should read the article in SkiPress magazine that I/we stumbled upon while at Aspen/Snowmass.

The Joy of Sliding, why our feet make skiing feel so sexy -
Quote:
<snip> Luckily for skiers, it doesn't take much to get a touch receptor's attention.........."a little pressure produces a flurry of excitement,then fades, and a stronger pressure extends the burst of activity."<snip>......the joy of skiing resonates with touch's craving for nuanced, diverse experience.


Lets just say, if you have a chance to pick up a copy of SkiPress, this article is worth reading........
Speaking of Touch, That is a very nice corner of the diamond to be in tune with.

...or how about coming into the liftline, laughing your butt off and being covered in snow?

I always get funny looks when I'm in the lift line with snow up to my waist. And looks that seem to say "oh that poor guy must keep falling" when covered head to toe. Having fuzzy hard shell pants helps.

I live in Minnesota - if you come into the line covered in snow, you fell. Generally, that also means I'm buying a pitcher of beer too...

I'm sure I've often been seen with my body language expressing, "Jesus Christ! How the hell did I get onto this thing?!"

I agree. Usually my skiing expression is something like, I may be a 320 pound powerlifter, but I make prettier tracks in the powder than anybody at Snowbird.

Sounds more like bragging, Hercules.



My ski expression?

Depends, drunk or sober?
