Skiing is one of the best sports on the planet, as long as you do it properly, and the right kind.
The best kinds of skiing require the skier to have balls made of granite, and these include freestyle (flying 90 feet through the air doing various tricks with only two thin planks of wood on your feet for you to land on), and speed skiing (going so fast down a hill that if you fall the friction will melt your suit and burn you.... thats right, you are going so fast that fucking SNOW will burn you)
People who ski recreationally are know as punters and are hated by all serious skiers because they clog up slopes and fall over lots. However they do sometimes cause hilarity by skiing into trees, falling off chair lifts etc.
The only kind of skier worst than the punter is the racer. These idiots feel the need to wear body hugging lycra and are an affront to life itself.
