u can never be too old to ski
I dont think it matters how old you are you still can progress. I am 27 and I am still out there trying to better myself and try new things. The only thing that holds me back are medical bills, they can be expensive. There is a good cult called "over the hill" which talks about this as well.
I would like to say, my dad, is freestyle skiing, and he is 42 years old. I know it's not amazing so don't bash or anything. But this year he started to spin 360's off 10 foot jumps and things, and got better at boxes (coming off switch and things) and my guess is that he will start hitting more then just flat boxes this upcoming year, and will spin some bigger jumps. I mean, he's not out there because he wants to go pro, he's just doing what he loves.
I'm 22 and am still pushing my limits. due to knee injuries I've had to slow down. I am just trying to get stronger and stonger and get back to where I was. I have also been a bit more conservative I guess about jumping. I wait until I'm feeling it, and its good snow. I am now over trying to dodge too many bombholes and hitting massive tables in the park. I think its mostly due to the fact that I know I can get hurt badly sometimes and I want to ski the rest of my life like this. so I take it easy sometimes, and sometimes you just gotta fuckin send it. I mean it is skiing.
I landed my first 3 in late May 2008. I turned 35 in March. Enough said.
me personally.. ive taken my skiing to the woods, trees, bumps, and concentrating on more style to 3's and stuff like that.
