Not ice, hardpack. To ski the stuff, all you haveto do is just ski, because if you can really turn, it is not ice, even though getting used to hardpack in unnerving because you think that crunch is ice.

I skied a few times in my teens and then went mad for cross country skiing for about 6 years, then oved to UK and started skiing (10 year ago) down hill. Love it. Closest thing to heaven that I know!

How long

I'm a late bloomer but I think that I started so late at 25, I still have killer knees...not killed knees...hahahaha. I'm 47 now, so I've been skiing for 22 years and am actually a patroller now. I can bash bumps all day long with the kids, preferrably in freshies but it really doesn't matter, I love the bumps.

I was so proud when I got up first time water skiing, I loved it, as it was the only sport I have ever looked good at, let alone be able to do (actually I was probably really crap but I stayed up right!) It hurt my arms and unless I was going to start jumping over sharks ... I got a bit board!
Skiing? Well I was like Bridiget jones and that was after 6 years! Now after 10 years and half living in Austria I cant let my kids be better than me after 2 seasons (and they are!) I taught them and now they have overtaken me!
Go out there
have fun
snow might end up as water when melted but its not the same to ski on, ask any one who has been at the end of the ski season and its heated up try skiing on a puddle of water! you get wet!
GOOD LUCK

I've been skiing since I was about 5 so this will be my 16th season. I stopped skiing for about 4 seasons to snowboard and put the skis back on last year and regret missing out on those 4 seasons.

Old, not cold

I started skiing in 1971, when I was 18, on Hart Hornets, Raichle boots and cool Marker bindings that would partially pop apart, (intentionally!), upon releasing. Nowadays everything is sooo much better. Current setup is Atomic Blackeyes/Metrons depending on conditions and mood. Skiing is still the most fun you can have with your clothes on!

hi, I have spend few days in Davos in Switzerland. It was really exciting. long slopes, in different dificulty. My soul is overfilled of imprssions. I have learnt skiing when I was 36. It was interesting indeed. Beacause I was dropped at an red slop in Austria.
In the year 2009 I want to try some areas in US
