16 Nov Why I Ski
I’m always excited at the prospect of winning some free stuff, and SKIER magazine is giving away Dana Flahr’s setup. The signup form also asks: “Why do you ski?” Why, I thought… it’s been so many years, since I was two years old, every fall I get impatient, every winter since I’ve slid down hills, and the cycle continues. My answer:
A mountain is a craggy, unforgiving, inhospitable, massive thing. But cover it with layers of snow and me with skis and it’s a maneuverable playground, of mostly soft landings, smooth gliding, and bursts of yelling. But it’s still unpredictable and the gift for a lifetime.
Here’s to winning.
