I don't think I've ever posted a thread but today has me feeling down as fuck and I'm hoping someone on here can relate or provide a new perspective.
I don't know how much longer I can keep skiing. I live in a small town called Granby a few blocks from my best friend who I've been riding with since the 4th grade. We moved here as soon as we graduated highschool and I've been skiing and celebrating skiing every day for the last 5 years since then.
Lately, my body has been wanting to give up. I have had no acl tears or things like that. But I have terrible arthritis, bone spurs, new back and knee issues, and my shoulders fall out if you look at me wrong. When I finish writing this crap I may not even post, I'll go get 11 staples out of my dome.
I was discussing this with my friend yesterday after skiing and he told me that his back and neck are pretty much done skiing and that he is looking at school this fall.
I don't know what the fuck to do. I love skiing and ski videos and everything skiing. It seems like its time to move on but I'm not ready to change my lifestyle so drastically. Skiing every day is all I know. Packing up the shit every day even if I'm sick or don't feel like skiing. That's pathetic if it's the structure I'm clinging to but skiing is all I have. I don't know what to do.
