Holy tits man this is deep, just read it all.
This thread definetly deserves a like! :] props dude
1.) You have mad writing skills.
2.) You're exactly right. Once a skier, always a skier. You can get tired of it but atleast in some point of your life you were obsessed. Addicted. Skiing will change your life forever.
something i can definitely identify with. i've kind of lost that loving feeling, and it wasn't something that was an active decision. other priorities come up and the time just flies. before you know it, seasons pass and you're left wondering how.
good read though. pretty heartfelt piece. the great thing about skiing, though, is that i feel that it's like riding a bike. i could go out and do it at any time and feel like i've never really taken any time off. of course, my muscles would probably say differently, but you never really lose it.
just do what makes you happy. if that involves skiing, well great. if it doesnt, well that's ok too. it'll always be there when you have the money and time for it. that's probably the worst thing about skiing; time and money. it's not really one of those things you can just do for an hour here or there, as you please, unless you actually live in the mountains, which is really the reason i've taken up other hobbies. it's a feasability thing, i guess. or maybe im just not super passionate about skiing, which is why i don't really strive to get out there where others might make it happen.
any way, i don't want to rant too much. be happy, do what you need to do before you do what you want to do, and know that there are good people and good times lurking around every corner. there's always fun shit to do no matter what direction your life seems to carry you in.
Real deep. Very well written. Kinda sad though. I really hope i never get to this point and lose my spark for skiing. Getting older and growing up is inevitable but i don't think that means you have to lose your fire and passion for skiing. It just means you have other priorities and resposibilities that sometimes come before skiing, and thats allright.
Skiing will always be there for you when you need it. Once a skier always a skier.
