what better feeling is there than to stomp a new trick, or to stomp a bigger booter or something, to clean the first kink or triple kinked c rail or so? The 'I did it'-feeling is just awesome.
your friends do it, you have fun with em because you ski, you can get new friends through it and you just get more respect from people if they see you pulling a 5 over a serious booter. you're cool, but not mainstream if youre skiing.
the next big thing is powder. if you look at it objectively, you think, okay, its fresh snow that is deeper and ungroomed. but like most of you know, its just awesome, if you hit a cliff, go further, do some sick turns in deep and steep conditions, enter a wood, do smaller turns in deep 'wooden'-snow, get out of it, stand still and think: 'this is just awesome, why the fvck should someone NOT SKI?"
youre head is free, no worries, if youre skiing. that is what i like, skiing is a sport, but a sport without limits. Even if sometime, people gonna throw switch corked 7's over 80ft cliffs, land em and ride away clean, i wont say skiing has come to an end.
i also do XC-biking and freeride biking, its just the same spirit. getting faster every day, uphill and downhill, its so much like skiing, but skiing is the top of the crop.
thx to ne1 for reading this, i kno its not the best grammar or stuff, i wrote more than i had wanted to do, i get so euphoric, if i think about skiing, even though my next skiing day is months away...
