Skiing, for me at least, is a bit like golf: no matter what your skill level you can enjoy it. You can find someone who is just as good, or useless, as you are. Just as the one good shot lifts the mood on the golf course, the one run at the limits of your abilities when you don’t fall over will bring you back to the slopes for more.
