Dude, I'm sorry, but your being pretty ignorant.
If you don't live right by the sea, you can't be in to surfing? If you don't live right by the mountains you can't be in to skiing? Just because you're not into it, doesn't mean others aren't. I come from Denmark, one of the flattest countries of the world, 6-7 hours from any legitimate skiing, and skiing is HUGE there. I think somewhere around 400.000 people go on skiing holiday every year, out of a population of 6 million. Your reasoning was flawed because you weren't able to look beyond your own little world.
