We ski!  I hadn’t for a long long time before I met my Fiance, but he’s been doing it his whole life so I let him re-teach me (I had first learned when I was like.. 10).  Our first vacation together was actually a long weekend skiing up north. 

I prefer cross country skiing, but we have tons of fun doing both together!

i skied back when i lived in japan, and then took up snowboarding as well, which i was able to do in college, when i lived in WA…now that I am in FL…not so much.  And I am kinda too chicken to waterski!

Fiance can waterski (he used to do it in lakes in Iowa where he grew up) but has never snow-skied.  I’d love to take a trip to Colorado or somewhere like that one day!!

Yeah I like cross coutnry because it’s a little more peaceful and we get to see the scenery.  We do tons of hiking in the summer, so cross country is  our wintertime alternative!

We’d both been out to Colorado with our families long before we met – but we went togther to Winter Park last year.  I’d definitely suggest that park for someone who’s trying to work their way up and get better!  I loved it.

we ski we ski!  I used to be on a racing team.  Darling Husband snowboards as well.  Ive done it once, but I was not sooooo good lol.  We were in Winter Park, CO last winter for a vaca (my favorite ski spot in the US!  Seriously, fi you have the chance, GO) and we were on a double Black Diamond mogul course at the peak and I partially tore my ACL and TORE meniscus.  And skiied the rest of the way down the mountain lol.

I LOVE to ski! I went on at least 2 trips a year throughout high school and into college, but haven’t had enough money these past few years. I would love to find a way to make a trip happen this winter.

Fiance doesn’t ski but wants to learn. I was supposed to take him and teach him last winter, but we didn’t have the money. I’m kinda worried about teaching him, though. I have been known to give up on learners because it was cutting into my limited lift time (I’m a gem, I know) – so hopefully he catches on fast (or I gain some patience)!

I snowboard and he skis.  We met at our home resort when we were both working there, and it’s a huge part of who we are as a couple and as individuals.  This is a lifelong thing for us, and we’ve lived the mountain ski bum lifestyle.  He hasn’t done as much backcountry skiing as I have, so it’s fun to go out there together.  We don’t always ski/board together though… because a lot of my time is spent shredding with my girlfirends (who kick all ass!)

We live in Montana, and had 3 inches of snow this morning and a low of 4 degrees Farenheight tonight… yep, we ski. If you don’t find something to do outside in this climate, you’ll go crazy.

I’m hoping to have a better year on the slopes than I did last year!
