Black Sabbath, older Grand Funk Railroad (nice to contrast "paranoid" by both bands), Ozzy Osbourne, Pink Floyd, ZZ Top, Uriah Heep, King Crimson, Led Zeppelin, Mahogoney Rush, Rush, Aerosmith, a few stones songs come to mind, some Clapton, Hendrix, Vaughan,  damned there are too many to name, I'll stop now,

 

Also depends on the mood.

What the hell are you doing listening to music when you're SKIING!

Tricks.  Big ones.

post #7 of 22

I haven't done it yet, but listening to music while dancing with the mountain seems reasonable.  Could be dangerous though; I recall a little mishap back in '76 when Black Sabbath's guitar rhythm induced me to go a little too fast through a construction zone...

post #8 of 22

This Magic Moment - Lou Reed

I Found Away - Alkaline Trio

The Greatest Man that Ever Lived - Weezer

Death or Glory - Social Distortion

White Riot - The Clash

Don't Change - INXS

The High Road - The Broken Bells

Sound System - Operation Ivy

Last One to Die - Rancid

Swagger - Flogging Molly

Some Kinda Hate - Blood for Blood

 

Any repeats I apologize, you did post like 200 songs.

post #9 of 22

Just a few, but I think they are good:

 

Set my Baby Free - Ian Brown

Loud Pipes - Ratatat

The Funeral - Band of Horses

1901 - Phoenix

 

Also, If you're looking to ad more Rap a lot of stuff by Kid Cudi and/or Chiddy Bang would be good

For Kid Cudi, try: CuDi Zone, Embrace the Martian, and Pursuit of Happiness

For Chiddy Bang, try: The Opposite of Adults, Truth, and Hey London.

post #10 of 22

Its more than reasonable, its motivational and done right fun. I find personally when I'm listening to music I get so into the act of skiing that I never think about the pain. This is really helpful for skiing intense mogul runs where you need to give every ounce of effort that is humanly possible. Although it is always a good to remember to keep your music down and pay attention to those around you.

 

Its really no different than running to music, yeah its possible you the music distacts you and might do something stupid like run into a 4 lane highway. But as long as you pay close attention to your surroundings you should be fine. I guess it really depends on your skiing ability, good skiers find it easier to stay focused even when other things are distracting them such as music.

I too find this to be true, however, not necessarily because I'm such an awesome skier but because I've been trained to focus. I'll be focusing on my skiing, the way my skis feel, the feel of my speed, the way my body is orientated, what's going on around me, etc and not really the song playing. Most times after an intense run I'm not even sure what songs were the last ones that played.

post #14 of 22

You already have a bunch of sick songs on there, but you should definitely to check out Gogol Bordello. Sooo good to ski to, and not to mention, they put on a mean live show.

post #15 of 22

do you want a ski list or a ski library?

 

I personally like avenged sevenfold. There newer stuff their first 2 cds where screamo and then they got away from it. There's some really good stuff on the self titled album

post #17 of 22

I listen to music all the time when I ski. Helps me focus. Just like underpressure said. I use Bluetooth Skull Candy Headphones in my Smith Helmet and it is a great distraction at lower volume, especially when I am on Ski Patrol. If the injury is really bad it helps keep my focus and also distracts me from focusing too much on one place or becoming too stressed about the injuries/situation. Of course, I might just be strange also. I am the only patroller I know of that does it.

post #18 of 22
