I just spent a four day weekend skiing with my cousin.  There is nothing like flying down the mountain and carving some great turns, feeling like you are defying gravity.  I dare say after having so much fun, that I might enjoy skiing more than golf.  At least for the moment.  We had a great time despite the conditions being foggy, low visibility, and mostly crappy snow.

I’ve been skiing since I was a little kid, many decades ago.  My preference is powder (photo above), and I’ll often hike or go off into some crazy places just to get a few seconds of that feeling of floating on the snow.

Top 10 Ways Skiing Is Better Than Golf

  • No 3-putts
  • No slices/hooks
  • No silly rules
  • No unfixed ball marks
  • No slow play
  • No unreplaced divots
  • No tee times
  • No waiting behind the slow group in front of you
  • No feeling like a fool because the gear you just bought is now obsolete
  • No sandbaggers, or as I prefer to call them, cheaters

See you on the course soon, but now that it is winter in northern Utah, I’ll see you on the slopes.
