Preparation for Skiing - This is to remind skiers how to prepare for the ski season and to remind non-skiers why they do not ski.


***I did not write this, but as a skier who misses the snow and skiing like crazy, I am posting this as a reminder. It is supposed to be 104 degrees here on Saturday, so this might come in handy. (I miss Winter. Sigh.) And yes, that is me skiing in shorts and a cowboy hat. They opened the hill for one day in July and I was there. Life was good that day!



Preparation for Skiing - This is to remind skiers how to prepare for the ski season and to remind non-skiers why they do not ski.


-10. Visit your local butcher and pay $30 to sit in the walk-in freezer for half an hour. Afterwards, burn two $50 dollar bills to warm up.

-9. Go to the nearest hockey rink and walk across the ice 20 times in your ski boots carrying two pairs of skis, accessory bag and poles. Pretend you are looking for your car. (Awww, look at my babies, er skis, with snow on them. Happy day!) ----------------------->

-8. For ski boot simulation at home, put a pebble in your street shoes and tighten a C-clamp around your toes.


-7. Buy a pair of gloves and immediately throw one away.


-6. Go to McDonald's and insist on paying $6. 50 for a hamburger. Be sure to wait in the longest line.

-5. Clip a lift ticket to the zipper of your jacket and ride a motorcycle fast enough to make the ticket lacerate your face.

-4. Drive slowly for five hours - anywhere - as long as it's in a snowstorm and you're following an 18 wheeler.

-3. Fill a blender with ice, hit the pulse button and let the spray blast your face. You'd almost believe you're skiing in front of a snowmaker!

-2. Dress up in as many clothes as you can and then proceed to take them off because you have to go to the bathroom.

-11. Repeat all of the above every Saturday and Sunday.

Hahaha - how funny is that! I have never heard or seen those 10 reasons. They make, of course, perfect sense. Puuuh - it has been two years since I last skied, probably forgot everything :(
