    And if they don’t care if I ski uphill, then I cut off the “I” and tell them to do it themselves (grin). Lou

    some riders simply put up with the downhill stuff, in order to get at the creme-de-la-creme, the uphill.

    Uphill skiing might not be as thrilling as the down, but it sure lasts longer…

    Lou, Are you suggesting that the uphill is more tantric?

    Lots of people think that we (backcountry skiers) skin up cause we don’t want to pay for tickets. And probably that’s true for some. But for many that I know it’s simply the way we enjoy skiing.

    It’s like saying “you ride a motorcycle to save on gas” :)) Surely some do but the majority in western world ride it cause it’s a different way to travel, the feeling is completely different.

    SASE in route. May need to edit out the I and uphill, a more general call to action.

Got something to say? Please do so.
