snowblading here (those small ski's)

I prefer them over all the rest. You got all the advantages from ski's (easier in elevators, handier to carry, you don't always need to sit down when you want to rest, you fall less on your wrists and knees,...) and you can do all the stunt of Snowboarding.

true, can't deny that, then I use a board, but I don't often go on heavy snow. I prefer shoeing down at high speed, evading fat woman that just learn to ski and start panicking when I come towards them at 70km/h and start turning just a few meters in front of them  :twisted:  :twisted:

yeah, tell me about it. Bah, don't ppl have a sense speed anymore these days.... when the slope is flat you gotta get speed or else you stop 20 metres before the lifts and need walk all the way to it.

it's not hard. basically all you need to do is stand on top the mountain, slide down and when you can't break, make sure you aim for a fat lady (they are softer to fall on then a tree or something. The fat works as a pillow)

Only done it once it was a Valentines gift. I enjoyed it but I've never gotten the chance to go again. Most likely won't for awhile now as well.  :|
