I was inspired to ask about this by the winter thread. Is anyone here interested in skiing or snowboarding? If so, where is it that you like to go? I live in the mountains, a short distance away from the Telluride mountain town/resort, the most expensive place I've ever seen. You've got all of your richest folk up in Telluride. Oprah has a giant house there up on a hill (that I think you have to arrive by helicopter to get to), if you want an estimate of how expensive I'm talking about. Still, it's popular, and if you wanna go skiing/snowboarding without going far, that's where you go if you can afford it. I used to get a pass there for a Christmas present and would go there to ski with kids from middle school, school bus and all. I was the suckiest skier ever. I'm talking falling down every five seconds sucky. This is the sort of thing you have to start practicing young, not just never ski in your life and then go up on the lift to the top thinking you can handle it- lesson learned the hard way. I can't afford to go anymore. Thousands of dollars? No thanks. Can't even afford a few hundred dollars. But I realllllly want to go and learn how to snowboard. If I ever save up enough, I'm going to head up again and get some snowboarding lessons. What about you? If you do go, what do you like most about it? Are you good or as sucky as me? Do you prefer skiing or snowboarding?
