Winter sports is so fun but I haven't been able to go in forever due to money issues. Haven't even been on a dry slope in about 5 years.

How many Pit users have been skiing or snowboarding?

i can do both, not either particularly well. i've done more snowboarding, but i might be better at skiing. Never could do the trick parks though. the coolest thing i did was slowly sliding off a box and landing after a 2ft drop. not that thrilling. it's pr fun though
it's all just coming back

I've been to a couple of dry slopes and that kind of thing.

Skiing is shit, and snowboarding is for people who want to be surfers but want to cover up theit bellies.

Yeah, both. Living near the arctic circle helps though

I did an intensive ski/snowboarding class for gym one year in college. We hit the slopes for two days straight.

I sucked shit at it.

Probably the most physically demanding thing I've ever done, at least relative to the shape I was in back then (terrible). I got seriously wrecked that weekend.

I think being able to ski without spending a few grand on an expensive holiday (which I'd have to go alone on cos non of my mates ski) is worth the pain of Newcastle

It's definitely something that is fairly intuitive like riding a bike. Whenever I get back on a slope I have been fine again even though the majority of my skiing was from age 5-11

I picked it up pretty quickly when I went years ago, been to the dry slopes a couple of times since. I also went to that indoor place in Dubai but it kind of sucked lol

Really want to go again tho

It's because we exist in purgatory where it's never cold enough for snow but isn't warm enough for the beach

why is he wearing a snow suit?

Because if you're doing any appreciable speed on that and deck it, you're getting friction burns on any exposed skin on contact with the... whatever the fuck it's made from.

We have a slope where I live and it's basically kept running by snow making machines. It's alright for a few visits, but short run skiing gets old pretty quick.

But what are the brushes made of?

Are they just ever smaller brushes all the way down?

the suit makes sense from the protective end of it. I just wonder how much friction it could have......never mind I figured it out

My school used to do trips up the mountains each year to ski. It was good fun.

When I was an Army Cadet I used to participate in a biathlon, skiing and then shooting made for a pretty awesome day.
