Winter (ice/snow specifically) Sports

#1

Short quiz:

What winter sports interest you?

Have you tried any of the following (or would be willing to try):
- Ice hockey?
- Ice skating?
- Skiing?
- Snowboarding?
- any others not listed?

~~~

I like lots of winter sports but we don't get a lot here. No snow, you see. Our winter sports are usually things we can play in the rain. :p That said, I have skated and skied (indoors only at this stage) and had a few goes down a hill in a sled!!

I'm not too interested in trying out ice hockey... but I'm going to try snowboarding later this year!! :D

Skiing is my favorite sport to "play" and one of my favorites to watch. It's very good for the legs and after you get down the mountain you feel like you accomplished something if you went through the steep bumps.

I tried skating once and hated it; I broke my chin on the ice.

I'd think you'd have quite a bit of snow in July or August in Perth, but then again the only place in the southern hemisphere I've been to is Buenos Aires so what do I know? -CSM

I've done ice skating before (inside)... and I'm willing to try ice hockey and skiing... and just hope to god I don't break a leg or something.

It just doesn't snow here, so I'd have to do it somewhere else :p

I've done some ice-skating - my family and I used to go all the time, but I wouldn't say I was ever very good. :D

I've always wanted to go skiing/snowboarding, but living in Arizona really limits that... >_>

favorite sport to folow it's ski's with sports people like charlote kalla and Björn Ferry it's getting rather interesting to say the least.

And ice skating never interested me much but i can watch hokey but when im out and doing anything myself i do fairly well on skis not slalom though i can't jump to save my life.

Though i have manage to do a good 1.5 Km skate a couple of years ago and the noble art of drive snowmobiles im very good at if i have to drive fast or it's difficult terain jumping not so much

I probably could have been a pro snowboarder if I'd kept at it, but the kind of injuries you can sustain doing that and my location have never been enticing, even when I lived in Ohio. 4 hours isn't a long way to drive to the mountains, but it isn't accessible when you're 18-24 and mostly too broke to rent a hotel room and lift tickets.

I had a DREAM that I was somewhere and it started snowing, last night. My subconcious is ****ing cruel.
