Frank Morales Posted November 23, 2005 Report Share Posted November 23, 2005 Never thought I'd ask this question but here it goes . Every once in awhile I think that maybe I missed something not learning how to ski.I've always traced the roots of every thing else I've ever done when I was learning how to play guitar it was Robert Johnson surfing it was the old Hawaiians.But the first time I ever tried sking my friends took me to the top of the hill and said see ya later we'll meet you at the bottom. I was in levis and a sweatshirt you know the type? By the time I got to the bottom I could barely snowplow.Anyway my friends really got a kick out of that one.But also on this trip I'd brought a Sims skiboard and deciced to give it a try and the end of the day hiking up a little powder shute that I spotted on the side of the road.This time my friends were sitting and waiting for me tired and wanting to go home.Well that first run was all it took and I never looked back or at another pair of skis .After 25 years I'm thinking maybe I should try it one more time.You know the roots thing or should I get past it .I used to see skiers as the enemy how stupid is that.I know alot good snowboards that still ski and they rip.So my question is how many of you still ski and did it help you to become a better carver?
