Downhill Skiing
1 Attachment(s)
Pete and I joined a Tuesday night race league. We joined because the $70 got us 5 nights of skiing a Saturday pass and a steak dinner. We stuck around because it's freaking awesome.

Unfortunately, Pete can now quantify the fact that she is better than me. :sniff: I had better times than her the first three races but she turned it around for the last two. We both progressed a lot but not nearly enough to push any of the top racers. There is a huge skills gap there. Pete had a bronze and two silvers in her division the last three weeks and I got two bronzes the last two weeks. We are both out skiing our equipment and Pete is very fired up about this so it looks like will be in the market for new gear. The racing really helped my recreational skiing a lot and got us through what can be a bleak time of year. recommended

Awesome. It's like a mini vacation when you do stuff like that on a weekend.

I need more adrenaline in my life.

I no longer need or want more adrenaline in my life

That's a great deal! I am so much too old and fraidy cat. I've downhill skied on real snow for one week of my life when I was 17. Yes, I have lived in Michigan for 17 years where we currently have over a foot of snow. Bite me

We don't have any real slopes anyway -the ice-age took care of that.

Everyone here just XC skis. I see no appeal.....

(oh and go you, that is fabulous. I'm sure I'm not remotely envious...)

I'm envious, hanging out with, even being beaten by, Pete would be a pleasure. :blush:

way cool. It goes without saying, that the griffs are the coolest, but I'm saying it anyway.

Then you splurge, and hire a helicopter to take you to the top of the mountain.
This will be the greatest downhill run ever... and then, and then...
