    I can't imagine the drives some of you guys do.

    My local hill is about 25 - 45 minutes away (depending on the weather) from me.

    We should probably be using the term ski-hobo because "ski-bums" have gotten away from their roots.

    Also people who aren't experienced with "on your right" sometimes only hear "right" and think they need to move to their right to get out of the way.

    A few years ago I was skiing every weekend day and every other day I could.
    Lately I've been into winter biking, as a result I ski less and less each year. I generally only pick days when the snow...

    Halfway down my first run i felt like I had it back.

    I also laugh at this.

    I wonder how much that came into play, he probably knew how to get on the chair without anyone seeing (or even had someone help him)
