Am I lame after all these years?

I did alot of small hill skiing in high school over 20 years ago and then some medium hill skiing in Germany back in 1991 and I was pretty good at it. But last winter I hit a medium sized slope in Michigan with rented skiis and I barreled down the hill like a drunk elephant in a train wreck. I never thought picking it back up would be a problem, I can't believe I have become so lame. Did the guy at the rental shack give me skis that were too long, boots that were too loose? I can't figure out why I could'nt ski to save my life last winter. I have good balance and coordination. I am proficient in Martial Arts and Sailing. Why did I eat so much snow on my latest attempt to start downhill skiing again? Does anybody have any ideas?

Could be the snow. If the hill was solid ice, it would be tough to get your ski legs back.

don't be stupid

After 20 years it won't come back to you in 5 minutes. Take a lesson, take some time and it will all will happen in fullness of time.
