we still use skis, just ones that get us down the hill with more fun in mind
we still use poles, just shorter
we still use boots, just with less worry for injury
we still use ski clothes, just to keep us more warm
we still use chairlifts, just to get us up the hill more times, in order to enjoy the hill more
we still use goggles, but now they make us see easier
the main diffrences may just be a helmet to keep us safe, so please do explain.....
