What does “Powder Skiing” mean to you?

i love skifoan

It’s… Lust for Live… Diving into fresh, fluffy powder that’s splashing into your face with each new turn… Causing roaring laughter and a huge smile on my face… Living the moment and leaving all sorrows behind… The feeling of being weightless… Making me faceplant downhill on purpose J… Definitely better than [you know what I mean]… Pure joy… Riding the first and last chair… Simply put: Soul skiing!!!

Editor’s note: Watch out for rocks, especially early in the season, when snow depth isn’t really all that much.
