Well, it's been a solid month since most of us have done any skiing and so far I have done alright. But a week and a half ago I injured myself playing lax and haven't been able to do anything really active like tramp or slack line or even hit my summer setup. I was just watching all the home page edits and it hit me, I/most of NS doesn't get to truly ski for 6 whole months. Fuck that. At my home mountain (Stowe) it actually snowed and stuck there and it's still coming down, looking at all the Facebook pictures made me feel sick because it reminded me of pre-season. Plus if I were healthy I would be able to go skiing for one last time tomorrow...I know summer is gonna be fun and all but it's just not the same. No, this isn't just the feeling of oh I really want to ski, it's the feeling thats hits you in the pit of the stomach, that almost makes you feel sick and I think most of you know what I'm talking about..
Story of my life. Except in NC it is worse. 3 or 4 months of doing what you love and then 8 or 9 wishing you could do it. You should try skateboarding or blading. If you can get into one of those it will give you something else to get stoked on, occupy time with, and the skatepark crowd can be similar and really different from the ski/snowboard crowd, both of which can be good
i just had spine surgery 10 days ago. and i could still be skiing at abay if i hadnt.. id prefer to still be shreddin but hey life moves on. next season will be here before you know it. cheer up man there are ppl out there who have got it much harder than you do, and me, so be fortunate for the season you had and prepare for next season by getting in better shape over the summer. or do some flips into a pool or whatever the fuck..
Yeah I know how you feel, it sucks when you were just learning new stuff and now you have to wait another five or six months to try it out, and probably by then you will have to relearn what you could do at the end of the season.
That feeling pretty much ruins allot of the fun with summer every year, and this year its even worse than it usually is because I broke my back 3 months ago and I will have to take it easy for at least 3 more months. But at least it makes you super stoked when next season finally comes.
Prolly 90% of the people that go to Hood over the summer get jobs at t-line and make decent money while skiing 4-5 days a week. Just pack a car with a friend and road trip out....couple hundred bucks each from the east coast...couple days in the car...
Imagine living in a country as flat as the rack of Paris Hilton, only being able to ski 3 weeks a year... I have trouble sleeping some nights just because i can't stop thinking about it
Being on ns doesn't really improve my situation. Just makes me want it even more!
My sister and I play lacrosse in the spring, but me being me, would be happy to miss erry weekend to go spring skiing. However my dad is ademant that we stay home for her games and my games, so I havn't been skiing since the end of March. I finally got my mom to take a weekend off of work a few weeks ago to ski Tucks, but it rained. I always get that feeling in my stomach when I can't go skiing. I am praying that I will be able to get one of them to bring me up to Tucks on the first weekend of June.
