glad you at least admit the bias. i used to skateboard but then i switched over to inline, seems like it's usually the other way.
the way i see it, skiing is the rollerblading of the snow. not only because we have something on each foot, but in that we don't do the norm (snowboarding). except were slowly becoming more like skateboarding with how popular skiing is becoming. and also, i love inline but skiing just looks way cooler than either skateboarding or inline could possibly look imo
