hahaha my boys tell me to stop whining cause I'm a sissy skier. Then complain when I get off the lift and head down the hill while they are still trying to buckle in. Although I have to admit my 40yo butt is totally jealous when they can hop right back up from a fall and I have to wiggle and maneuver and adjust before I can right myself.

I use to wakeboard back when my family had a boat. That was my favorite thing to do. But you should definatly try snowboarding its really fun and easy enough to learn. I also skateboard too

I couldn't agree more.

I telemark ski and snowboard. The tele skis are awesome for back country travel. And the snowboard can't be beat for deep pow and tight trees.

Sadly my 50 year old knees are starting to give me problems so I don't snow slide as much as I used to. The snowboard is a lot more forgiving on the knees than the telemark skis.

For exercise I like to scoot around on cross country skis.

Never tried alpine gear.
