Ski Dreams

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 

Is it just me, or do others start having ski dreams this time of year?  Or do you have them year round and I am just a slacker? 

 

Last night I was absolutely ripping endless pillow lines in the trees, which is, of course, something I have never done (skied the trees, just not any pillow lines).  I have this theory that you don't actually ski beyond your ability in your dreams, you ski up to your full potential, like you would absent fear, inhibition and sense of responsibility to family, etc.  Sorry for getting Freudian. I need to call my mom.

Hahaha. I'm with ya. The closer we've been getting to skiing, the more ski dreams I've been having. They're becoming almost a nightly occurrence. Love it!

I've been having ski dreams off and on all through this off season.  The dreams are strange because in the dream I know where I'm skiing, but the dreamscape doesn't match my "real" experience on that line.  I can't quite mange to connect this and get into a lucid dreaming state.  Normally I get confused and wake up then try to go back to sleep and keep skiing.

I dream about it all year long.  I also had a dream about Miley Cyrus sometime early this Summer.  Nothing illegal, and for the record, she bugs the crap out of me.  So I don't know what she was doing in my dream.  Maybe it was a Nightmare?

Ironically, Miley's aunt was in my wedding, and my wife and I were tasked with keeping up with her at her aunt's own wedding 13 years ago (her parents were not there).  She was a precocious 5 year old, very creative in the way she tormented both children and adults, but very funny.  I don't think she's funny on the tube.  When my oldest daughter took pictures of Miley with her parents to school 4 years ago, the kids accused her of photoshopping off the internet.  Despite all that, still try to limit my girl's (9 and 6) Miley intake (as does her aunt with her 7 yo).  Small dream world.

I usually dream I'm skiing at Sugarloaf, which doesn't look anything like Sugarloaf but does have a gondola to the top. (I haven't actually been to Sugarloaf since they took the gondola down.)  Like others, I'm always skiing far better than I really do, but not for long.  Before I get to the bottom the snow always disappears and I'm skiing on grass, or jumping over rocks.  I've finished runs in some very strange places, and I never get a second run.

 

Once I dreamed I was having a great run at Okemo, but without my poles, which I had left in the car.  When I got to the bottom I went to the parking lot, but soon realized I had no idea where the car was or even what it looked like.  I knew I'd wake up before I ever found the poles.

Hi TPJ:

 

I know what you mean.  For some strange reason, when I dream of skiing, I always dream that I am skiing at a local area named Ski Roundtop, although I am a regular at a sister area named Ski Liberty. What ever the case may be, when I dream that I'm skiing Roundtop, it doesn't look at all like Roundtop in reality, but every time in my dreams it looks and skis the same (actually skis better in my dream than in reality.  more vertical and steeper).

 

Mark of a true die hard skiier.


Think snow,
