Despite growing up within a day's drive of some of the best skiing in the world, I have never - not once in my life - strapped boards to my feet, stood upon nature's version of ice cream, and allowed my body to succumb to the forces of gravity.

I am a big skiier. I live a few hours away from Sunday River and Sugarloaf. They are both great,and offer a lot of variety.They are probably 2 of the best mountains on the east coast. Sometimes the top banner has an ad for them :-D

I love skiing! Best and most famous place I've ever been to has probably been Snow Basin in Utah, where the winter olympics were a couple years back. I live on the East Coast though, and the best skiing around is the Poconos, which is nothing compared to Snow Basin. :-b

Snowboarder here. It's sweet, I also get a 75% discount on boards due to having an uncle who's, shall we say, pretty high up there in the Burton ranks. ;-) ;-D ;-D

Totally pumped, very fun stuff. I don't go nearly enough though.

I have gone boarding once both of the past two years and could easily do it every other weekend or more if I lived on a mountain and had the money. It could easily become my favorite pastime. :-L

I'm usually pretty good at most things, but I could NOT ski. I had reconstruction on my right knee and I just couldn't keep my feet in alignment. My right leg kept going off in all kinds of different directions. The last time I crashed, I fell awkwardly and felt my knee almost blow out. After that, I took off my skis and walked to the bottom of the mountain. It was kind of funny because I was right by the ski lift and was so embarassed about walking down the mountain, I kept looking at my ski and moving the clip where your feet click in pretending it was broken. :-D

My buddy I was with told me the slope we were on was too hard for a beginner so that made me feel a little bit better.


*edit* spelling and grammar.

Aw man that sucks. I never had balance problems with snow skiing but I think that was because I never snow skied till I knew how to water ski. The whole balance thing is similar I guess but something about water skiing was always tougher for me. The sudden pull when the boat punches it still catches me off guard. I probably could have saved myself choking down half the river if I learned balance on snow skis first then tried to water ski. :-b
