Have been skiing over 20 years - have rarely missed a year and sometimes managed more than one trip! Love it and am so glad I persevered when I was hopeless in my 1st lessons!

I am 34 years old. I started skiing when I was about 16 in high school. After I graduated I started a career and din't think too much about skiing being busy and all. It was about 12 years later in 2002 that I started again. Since then I have been trying to ski more and more often. This year I plan to ski at least once a week maybe more. I can't wait for snow!

On a side note; I was really quite surprised in 2002 when I started skiing again after 12 years of not skiing. I was able to pick up right where I left off. For me skiing is definately like riding a bike.
After 12 years i thought that the best way to get started again would be by skiing the "bunny" hill. My wife and I both agreed to start out there since she had not skiied in several years either. We took the short lift ride to the top of the bunny hill and laughed at ourselves the whole way down because it was so easy. From there we went and skiied all of our favorite runs just like we had done in our youth.
We were able to ski just fine and didn't really think too much about it because we were having so much fun, but by the end of the day we were both so sore we could hardly walk. While we both still knew how to ski, our bodies were just not ready to spend all day skiing and they let us know in a big way!

I started skiing when I was 5, stopped at the age of 17 after almost loosing an eye in a accident. I got to the mountain about 5 times last season for the 1st time in 10 years. This year I've gotten over 100 days at Whiteface. I am proud to say I am a re-addicted skier

On and off (depending on the complexities and curveballs of life) for about 20 years. Although I ski mainly black diamond terrain (groomed trails only), I still classify myself as Intermediate (I guess I am adanced), but I do refrain from calling myself an "expert". I still feel there is more I can learn. Practice makes perfect and I still make mistakes sometimes.

I have been skiing since my dad first took me when I was about four or five to Taos. Since I moved to the east, I forgot how to ski powder.
