Skiing in The Alps is a must. You will not get this experience with any other sport, and it is absolutely essential for your skiing.
It is not a matter of “going on holiday”, but of doing it. You will get bored very quickly and this will ultimately lead to boredom on the slopes.
When we ski in the mountains this is not the case, we just look forward to it, and enjoy our time together. The skiing is incredible, we have always done it ourselves as our hobby. We do not want to be the first to ski in the Alps. It is absolutely awesome!
Once again we need to be aware that skiing in the mountain country is not for everyone. Do not believe that because you have never been to the Alps that you can expect to ski this winter.
It is the opposite. Our first winter in the Mountain took place during February/March 2008. We were riding a mountain bike, and had many winter days, but after our ski season in December 2008 we came back in January of 2009 and our time in the mountain was just beginning.
We started to get back into the groove in March 2009. So far the skiing, with all the snow, has been fantastic.
It’s like you’re really being pulled by some force, but it’s nothing compared to the weight, speed and strength of the weight.
So, after much research I decided to get a ski that’s about 80% lighter than the average mountain mountain ski. A little over 15 pounds! And after the crash it’s not a bad ski, all things considered, I’d say it really isn’t something the average person would want to ski on a regular basis, but it does have its uses. So, I ended up getting a G-Shock and a few parts.
