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.
One of my favorite places: Alta Ski Area
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.
