I am totally against skiing while drinking. I never drink doing any outdoor
activity. (Cept the pool :) )
HOWEVER... I did learn a few things skiing buzzed on a school slope
(chaired, not carpeted) and I must say that, since skiing is a very
touchy feelly sport to master, skiing without any inhibitions does
offer another point of view. In my case, it was better muscle isolation.
I was buzzed at the time (probably 0.05) and was on a wide slope
during a weekday with hardly 10 people on the entire slope (600ft high, 1KM long).
This is the only way I could conceive it would make sense to ski buzzed.
Skiing drunk has no merit whatsoever.
But yeah, you do NOT want to reduce your inhibitions to feel the rush
of skiing! I want to feel the whole rush!!!
