    I hate to say it; but I work for a heliskiing company, and I ski. Everyone who cooks should work for a company like this. :D

    I used to ski a lot, but not recently. I really want to get back into it though this winter.

    Winter is our slow season so I instruct snowboarding as a way to keep busy, get on the mountain, and kepp from getting fat. ;)

    Snowboard, when I can. When I was apprenticing back in Canada, I worked under a chef in the mountain resort Panorama. Best 2 years of my life. :)

    I have always found that those who like to ski cannot imagine that anyone would not like to ski. I am not a skier (or snow boarder.) I have this image of flying down a hill going a gazillion miles an hour in the freezing cold and a tree or rock looms up in front of me and I'm asking, where are the brakes to stop these things? And besides, I believe that ski boots were invented by the Spanish Inquizitors who would make the heretics wear them till they confessed. Why would anybody voluntarily do that to themselves? Beats the **** out of me :)

    I XC Ski. There's no good location for boarding or downhill here. I also whitewater kayak when the water's not frozen. That's actually my main hobby, I've been doing it for a long time and do it at every opportunity. I bike but that's more for fitness than hobby and I also play bass. I'm not a master of any of these things, don't have the free time, but I enjoy them all.

    Phish, I used to Whitewater Kayak also, when I lived in Georgia. I loved it!!! Can't imagine why anyone would want to sea kayak. Seems pretty tame after whitewaters.
