10 Questions Skiers Ask Themselves Before Their First Run


Have you ever realized how much thought and planning goes into skiing nowadays? We have to decide on gear, check out the snow/trail report, and we usually end up worrying about a bunch of other meaningless shit.

Remember when guys, and gals, in the 1950s showed-up with wool sweaters, leather boots, and 8′ long wooden planks? Times were simpler…

Here are 10 questions you probably ask yourself prior to that first run of the day.

I wonder if it snowed more at the summit?

Dude, it said it only snowed 2″ on the resort’s website…bummer. But it DEFINITELY snowed at least 6″+ at the top! I prayed for it all last night!
