Sister Ray has always been my favorite song to listen to in the moguls. it has been a sad week for rock.

Anyone else have specific songs that they associate with certain types of trails?

You'll need a really long run for that one.

Not into the headphone thing, but in my head I tend to go with the heavier stuff. Overkill by Motorhead would be a good one.

I sometimes listen to music when skiing alone to offset the tedium of the chair ride up. When I'm actually skiing, I either cannot hear the music over the wind/ambient noise or I just tune it out, because when I get back on the chair I usually notice that I've missed a few tracks I was anticipating on the previous ride up. I guess I could experiment with turning up the volume....

yeah the trick is getting that sweet spot where you can hear the music as well as what's going on around you

They used to have loud music playing in the bumps at Okemo on Sel's Choice. Not sure if they still do.
