I know I got kinda bummed out by the end of this season. Like I still wanted to ski and had fun doing it, but I didn't get the real hard jittery stoke more than a couple days. I have looked it over in my mind and come to some realizations.
1) The crew you ski with. I have spent a lot of time with my dad skiing because he pays a lot of the time, and I have skied with some people who just don't have too much fun as well. There is no fire when I'm skiing with them, it's just the same routine of pick the run or trick and do it. Blah. Sometimes I ride with peeps who are stoked and it is just so much more fun, then you get stoked and don't want to leave. This stoke carries on and on and on.
2) Your tricks/ progression. I suck at park, just throwing that out there. So this season I spent a lot of my time thinking that I wouldn't be respected as a skier, or that I would be considered a poser because of my equipment, unless I learned some basic tricks. Well I suck at park for a reason, mainly because I don't have the real desire to throw myself in harms way and learn stuff. But I felt the pressure to perform to expectations. I was trying to learn tricks for my rep. BAD IDEA. Skiing is about fun and as soon as I stopped caring about my abilities and just fooled around it got a lot more fun. Get creative if that's what floats your boat. Do what you want regardless of what others think. Chances are it will take you somewhere.
3) The place/conditions of where you ski. If you are stuck in a tiny hill with a shitty park and no powder constantly it might get a little stagnant. Plan a trip to a place that gets lots of good snow and has real mountains or parks or both and just get in touch with skiing again. If spending a week skiing powder or pristine parks doesn't do it for you then you might just need a break from skiing completely.
4) NEWSCHOOLERS. I have taken a break from ski gabber, gear talk, and from watching any edits that aren't professionally edited. I have detached myself from the details of what tricks are what, what grabs are cool, which double flips are lame, which pros are up-and coming, what gear has what characteristics, etc. After about 4 days of not saturating myself in the skiing aspect of NS I felt a sudden urge to go skiing again. I remembered all MY favorite feelings about skiing, not other people's or the pros'. Sometimes a break to cleanse the mind and get back to what skiing is about to you is really useful.
I could go on and on and on since I have thought a lot about it, but I'm done for now.
