Actually it's a hell of a lot if fun if you know how to ski. Done it a zillion times and the only time I ever hurt anything skiing was a thumb when I was sober.
60 years skiing, 8 years racing as a junior, racing in masters untill 3 years ago, right knee can't take it anymore. As far as riding goes, i've done it for awhile as well, without any major come off's, minus one in '72, which wasn't my fault, lot of crashe's on dirt but who is counting.
As for drinking, been there done that too, former, or present alcoholic, last drink in '87, rode and skied drunk regularly. Nothing personal but, i am not complaining, if you wouldn't ride or ski with me.
