This is more so an advert for the sport I do, as an off shoot of the swimming thread.
I'd never considered learning to ski. However, we moved to somewhere with a dry slope not far, so I thought we'd give a go. It was a disaster, my OH couldn't stop and over shot our group, and skied down another groups slope and fell over. She was so bad we had to quite for the day. However, as I'm really cruel, I booked us some private lessons. And over the course of a year on and off, we learnt to ski. In fact the OH is now maybe stages more advanced than me. Its great exercise (especially on a dry slope) but it also doesn't feel like exercise.
So we finally, after putting it off many times went skiing a few weeks ago, to Andorra. We felt like total impostors as its hard to believe you can ski miles down a mountain when you've only done 120 meters max indoors. But we progressed very quickly from green, to blue, to red. It's a bit of a weird experience because you get to learn so much and have so much practice but by the end of the holiday your legs are gone and you're skiing like a beginner.
On returning were already planning to ski in Scotland for a few days next week. It's so addictive. I'd highly recommend it to anyone, unless you need your legs to earn your living.
Anyone else skied? Or thought about trying it?
If you can't talk about the problem, how are you ever going to even start talking about the solution?
