i LOVE skiing! been doing it for 15 years now. fallen down too many times :P shame the only place in UK worth skiing is MK :lol: been there once, but the slope isn't long enough... IMO best place is Alps, closely followed by Japan.

love skiing but the best part is the sitting in the lodge in front of a log fire with a nice drink and a burnt face when your done! :cheers:

I went to the dry slope in MK once....fell down too much and then decided my time was better spent rock climbing - then promptly skinned all my knees and elbows in a freefall chimnying fiasco.....

Me and adventure sports really don't mix...... :wacko:

i have never been on skis. but i have taken up snowboarding and let me tell you at 33 years old it sure has kicked my butt! i am having a blast with it though, i've been 3 times this year and plan on getting at least 15 days in this year. that's alot considering having to work for a living in between those times.LOL

Yep! I called it a dry slope, cos I know that the slippery stuff didn't fall from the sky....there was a roof!

Like I said, did it once, fell down lots, went shopping instead!

They had an ice rink there this christmas, that was fun! Hadn't been skating since they closed Alty years ago! Bruised my bum slightly doing that too..... :lol:

I love to Ski, grew up on the slopes, started when I was 6 due to my greataunt and uncle skied in the Olympics years ago and were my teachers. I wanted to do the Olympics but blew out both knees when I was 16 and that kind of ruened it for me. But I still ski all over the US. I am going to try the skiboard this year, got a new one and one for each of my girls too. I also like to water ski, but dont do it much any more due to my fear of the water.

lol the snow is real, so it's not a dry slope. dry slopes don't have snow as such :blink: quite evil & very painful.
