Have you ever been skiing? Do you like it? Why /why not?
I really do like skiing.
The act of skiing requires nothing more than skill, snow, and gravity. Like surfing, it's pure in its connection between person and the Earth. The Earth gives snow and mountains, and we receive joy in the forms of movement and accomplishment, and for the most part we leave little trace of our ever having done so, just a time-echo, our tracks imprinted on a transient medium that is sure to replenish itself before the season is over.
No, because it's very dangerous.
