im startin to look at schools and hawaii is lookin like my first choice right now and that means no skiing. I will be playin baseball and probably learnt o surf but im wonderin how it will be with no skiing. Anyone else ever have to leave skiing and if so how did it go?
when i was in 5th grade my family moved to puerto rico so that meant no more skiing on the weekends. i remember i cried on my last ski day. but after like a year i completely forgot about it. i dont think it would be as easy now as i am way more in to skiing then i used to be
Mauna Kea (Hawaiian for 'white mountain') is a 13,796' (4205 meter) volcanic mountain whose summit sometimes gets a skiable/boardable mantle of snow. There are no lifts, no grooming, no resort, but a road goes to the summit to serve the dozen or so world class observatories located at the summit. You must have a 4-wheel drive vehicle to get to the summit, which serves as your "lift." Basically, skiers take turns being the driver, who picks up the other skiers at the bottom of the runs and ferries them up to the summit. Conditions at the top are extremely variable. Winter temperatures range from 25 to 40 degrees F (-4 to 4 C), but wind chill and the high altitude can make it seem much colder. Between April and November the weather is milder, with daytime temperatures varying from 30 to 60 degrees F (0 to 15 C).

don't sweat it too bad. you'll come back to the mainland and ski. skiers make it happen, regardless of how broke we are.
Also, I do NOT reccomend going to Hilo. Manoa is a much better deal, and Oahu is fucking sweet. I grew up between the North Shore and California. I've only been skiing for 3 or 4 years because of that. I grew up surfing and its really easy to get hooked on.
But there's also something completely irreplacable about skiing. When I'm back in Kuilima during any winter period, theres a wierd feeling i cant describe. Warm winters just dont seem right, you know? Youll miss skiing, for sure.
Good luck, guy!
I'm a pretty big fan of skiing. No big deal.
I think it's UHawaii thats mascot is the "rainbow warriors." Have fun with that.
i waked into hot topic and bought myself some arm fishnets. I was so psyched to get onto my myspace account to post some pics. Thats the closest ive ever got to hitting an urban rail.
Calling me emo? You're the one with a myspace, bitch. -skiierman
