I'm writing a final paper on the culture of skiing. As I'm writing it I'm coming up with some beliefs of mine when I'm on and off the mountain, like never saying when the last run is and to always drink a PBR before a powder day. What beliefs and rituals do you have?
I smoke a fat one before the ride, then another one at the end of the day with a beer. Thats a ritual!
Before I drop in, I redo the bindings on my boots and stuff. But, I there is a gnarly section that can go wrong, I always take one breath and remember this feeling in case I get hurt on the way down. Just take the last few seconds to see the run in my mind and catch my last breath.
Yeah, I quoted myself, that just proves how awesome I am
I got it...You do future spins, you get PAYED! it's that simple!

Whenever I drop into a big jumps I always tap my poles together twice. No idea why, I've just always done it

Dingus: "In the lodge many times, I've tried on the lift but it gets awkward when theres is a family in the gondola with you."

I wake up at 6 even though it's only a 20 minute drive to the hill. Just get too stoked to sleep.
I make a giant cup of hot chocolate at home, stop at Kwik trip for an egg and sausage bisquit, and turn the music up too loud during the drive.
Girlfriend? Why yes, I have two. I give them a relaxing hot wax every week and pamper them with fancy bindings. I think I'll mount them tomorrow.
Not really a ritual but one time I saw a guy pass put when he got off the lift.
I make sure to lube the bases of my skis with a plentiful amount of goat semen
I hate shin bang, it feels like someone took a rubber mallet to your shins without mercy
I always get up early on saturdays Eat Cheerios and get to the hill by 11 for a solid day out there
