#1 - You Look Better

Most people look better in a ski suit than a swim suit. You can hide your sorry butt in a Bogner – same can’t be said for a bikini or boy trunks.

#2 - Beautiful View

Skiing takes you to new heights – literally. Chairlifts deliver a bird’s eye view of our beautiful mountains – and no hiking!

Unlike mountain biking, hiking and swimming, snow is very clean on contact – I am not a big fan of filthy sports that cake you in mud or mess up your hair.

Skiing is a tremendous calorie burner! Its great physical activity, consuming up to 700 calories an hour – that beats a jog on hard asphalt in my book
