Five Things Every Skier Says At The Office


Everybody has that guy at work that is always talking about skiing. Hell, I am that guy. Odds are, you probably are too. Here’s the shit we say that probably drives our co-workers insane.

“Uhhh one interesting fact about me is… I love to ski.”

We supply this answer to every single ice-breaker. It’s easy, it’s convenient. Everybody knows this about us already, but who cares?

Our Co-Workers, probably

“Hey, (insert boss’ name), I’m feeling a little under-the-weather.”

We’ve all done this. The classic playing hooky on a powder day. Hell, I live in Wisconsin and I’ve done this at least 5 times to ski rock hard ice patches. Sometimes you just gotta scratch the itch on a random Tuesday in January.

“Oh, you ski too?”

There’s nothing that makes our ears perk up more than hearing a fellow co-worker talk about anything remotely close to skiing. However the following conversation is usually disappointing.  We usually realize that our co-workers are just a classic ski-on-the-holidays-only Jerry.

“This reminds me of skiing.”

We relate every single thing to skiing. I once related a sales strategy to how I plan my line during a meeting. Nobody understood me. I guess it just comes with the territory.”

“My dream job is to be a ski resort owner, lift operator, ski patrol, etc….”

Another classic ice-breaker answer. I have told everybody in my company at least 5 times that I want to be on Ski Patrol and run shop with an avy-dog. You tell me a better job out there. You can’t because there isn’t one.
