What other activity can you do for 8 hours a day and escape it all? You don't worry about anything while on the hill. Hell I hardly look at my phone while I am skiing. It's the only way to get away from being so attached to phones / electronics. I'm sitting at a bar right now and everyone is on their phone, including me. Skiing is the one way in my life to be real with my friends and not worry about anything else besides what I am physically doing.
