With all the snow here recently I've been getting a massive longing to go skiing (damn exams getting in the way).

So I've spent the evening watching skiing vids on vimeo (http://vimeo.com/channels/118020#15230694), was just wondering who else here skis?

One Christmas I went to Michigan and went skiing. I almost crashed into a tree, it was scary as hell! After that I got better at it xD

I think it's fun but personally, I prefer the ocean biggrin.gif that's why I live in Florida

I really do hate you right now, I lived in Orlando for 12 years and moved to North Carolina in 06, big regret. I miss the beaches. sad.gif

As far as skiing, I think I'd prefer snowboarding personally. Have never done it, but would love to give it a try.

I can do both, although I'm a much better skier. They both have their advantages and disadvantages and I love them both XD.

I don't have a ski-trip planned this year (can't really afford it), so going to have to make do with soctland's short runs sad.gif

Ah right. Now i know where you are, my Dad spent alot of time in Stavanger a few years back, flying helicopters for Norsk Helicopters (he flys for Bristows over here but Norsk were lacking pilots for a bit and he used to do 2 weeks on over there, and then 2 weeks off).
