CabbyArrantTo be honest I'm jealous of a lot of people on here because they grew up skiing. I didn't start skiing until I was 12 and I'm the only one in my family who does. My parents tried to subdue my skiing obsession for 3 years after I started until they realized they couldn't. They also don't know that I ski park and I probably will never tell them.
Is there anyone out there that's been in a similar scenario and if so how do you make the best out of family who hates winter.
You shall find as you get old (like me)... that its not your folks who put a damper on your ski time, my folks got me into skiing when I was 3 and took me a lot of places over the years, then I skied at university, put it on hold when I set up business no1 went back to it and then moved home with business no2 and became a semi ski bum.
My folks are the least of the issues when it comes to skiing, my clients really don't like it when they call me and find me up a mountain for a week. My ex (clue) didn't ski and didn't want to. Some of my mates who used to ski have given up (kids, jobs, nagging wifes etc), my biggest issue these days is finding enough people to book a week or two in Europe to go with.
Usually to be found working in the alps with 'Staff' on the back of my jacket pretending to know whats occurring while I slink off to go ski.
