I have gone snow skiing once in my life and I loved it! I would really like to go again and take my daughter as well. How many of you ski and do you do it often? I usually watch the winter Olympics when all the ski and snowboard events are on. I enjoy them a great deal. I have always wanted to water ski but I do not swim and I am scared of water, so I don't think that I could ever do that. Do you like to water ski? Do you think that someone who is scared of water could water ski?

I haven't ever been skiing. When I was in Liechtenstein I did go up a snowy mountain in a chair lift. It was slippery for me with my shoes on. I didn't feel as if I wanted to try out skiing. I fancy going in a toboggan down a snowy hill as long as I stayed safe. I think snowy scenes look pretty but I don't like very cold weather. I prefer a tropical island and hot weather. I have been para sailing three times and I loved that. I tried wind surfing but it was way too challenging. I wouldn't ever have the confidence to try water skiing. I love swimming with my head up from the water and I adore snorkeling. I love seeing the coral reef and friendly fish.

I have went skiing a couple of times and although I had a great time, I was so sore the next day I could barely move Thanks goodness for flexibility is all I can really say about that. My grandmother had a fit when she found out I had went...she asked me if I had done the appropriate exercises beforehandhuh? Exercises? No..well..apparently there are exercises that people do for a certain amount of time before going that helps to prevent injury. I'm glad that I didn't really hurt myself...sore body and sore pride. I didn't do too bad though considering. I get pretty sore after horseback riding too where I don't do it regularly. As far as water skiing...I have never tried. I bet it would be hard for someone to water ski if they were afraid of the water. It might be a fun way to overcome the fear though. As long as you know how to swim...it might be a very good experience for you.

Jen, I never heard of exercises to go skiing- how interesting. I think that I will stick with horseback riding instead of water skiing as I don't know how to swim. I know how to ride my horse and I enjoy doing it so I think that I will stick with it.
