    All skiing is good. Some skiing isn't as good. But all skiing is good.

    Better plan for a long future just in case. I heard a quote from Sen Ben Sasse the other day speaking about fixing health care entitlements. He said his five year old son statistically has a 50-50 chance of living to 100.

    Hoping by the time we're in our 90's we'll have cyborg legs with the ability to deploy built in go-go-gadget skis.

    This is very inspiring! We met an old gentleman at A Basin with Soul 7s and he skis every other day. these are the type of people that encourage me to want to ski as long as I can. More power to him!

    Seems lately your odds of making it to 99 are reduced if you reside on the East coast. Move West or get a hip replacement ....
