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.
