Many people ask me why I ski. When my students ask what I'm doing after school, I always seem to answer "I'm going skiing!!!!" They reply "Downhill? where?" I say, NO!!! CROSS COUNTRY SKIING !!! They think it's boring, they think its for old grandma's and grandpa's shuffling along enjoying the scenery. They're right, older folk do like it. But, so do youngsters and 43 year olds... BECAUSE ITS ALSO VERY FAST and EXCITING WHEN YOU DO IT RIGHT !!!!!
