What music do you listen to on the slopes?

What kind of music do you like to listen to whilst going down the slopes? Rock, Pop, Country, Techno, Classical...? Or do you not listen to music whilst skiing at all?

I'm the same as Michael, the fresh sound of snow is good enough for me. Although, a little rock music could make it more dramatic

The sound of the skis and the people around me has always been enough for me. I wouldn't like to wear headphones, because I like to hear what is happening behind me.

I like to listen to music - I usually listen to dance music or relaxing stuff ... depending on how im feeling. It just so happens that when I listen to fastbeat music I seem to do a lot more crazy things.

Heh, I agree with Michael. I dont usually listen to music when I go skiing because for me it always seems like it causes accidents. Sometimes you get so entranced into the music that you dont know whats going on around you. My family friend doesnt listen to music either, she just sings when shes flying down the mountain.

I have the same routine as snoskichk. I listen to tunes on the way there to get amped. I never wear my ipod on the hill as it is dangerous as hell and most places won't allow it. I love the sound of skiing as others have said as well. Best to be able to hear if someones going to take you out, it does happen, and it doesn't matter how great of a skier you are if you can't hear them coming. I love listening to music that I see on ski videos as it gets me thinking of sick lines and awesome terrain.
