parallel pieces of plastic? I always have thought that skiing trips provide a great deal of entertainment for me during Christmas vacations.

Skiing - Falling in Love

Rushing down a snow covered slope on wooden planks– that was my reflection of skiing. I never thought skiing to be anything more and I never ever dreamed sliding down the incline myself. Until, a holiday to US was planned in December 2009. It was my first experience with snow and it was close to midnight when the plane landed.

Snowboarding: Skiing and Bright Red Mohawk

‘geezer' next to them doing the same; what if the old person next to them also had a bright red mohawk and a metal dog bone sticking through their nose, it would be like the end of the world. The ‘geezers' like snowboarding as an alternative to skiing for several reasons. They say it's easier on the joints, which I think would be really important to a 60 year old on the mountain. Most of them are there for the recreational value of it not for a workout or to be sore for the next week. Also they...
