Something I always remember is when I was skiing in Verbier (Switzerland). We were minding our own business, going up and down the slopes of the resort. We got off a ski lift at the top where the bar is and we saw lots of skiers dancing in the snow, as if they were at a nightclub. We were baffled because there was no music but they were all dancing like crazy, so we went over to see what was going on. It turns out that they were wearing wireless headphones and there were two DJs. You could take a set of headphones and choose between two types of music, by changing the channel. One was chill house music and the other was disco. It was cool to put on the headphones and see everyone dancing to the music, especially knowing that there were people outside enjoying the sun who couldn’t hear any of it. It was an awesome and really unique experience.

So far I’ve only tried alpine and cross-country skiing. I still haven’t tried snowboarding or ski mountaineering, but I’d love to give them a go. They are different disciplines and give you different sensations, and as you know, I’m all about experiencing new sensations. For now, my favourite thing is “carving” (smaller skis to turn better), going really fast, and tilting as if I were on a racing track. The thing I most enjoy is skiing down a long slope and gaining speed as I go. And if it’s a sunny day, there’s nothing better!

What about you? Do you like to ski? Let me know!

Talk to you soon!
