    Dancing Chocobo Have you ever gone skiing/snowboarding?

    That's a huge thing here in Montana. We even did it for school a few times. I actually rather like skiing but I haven't gone in a while.

    I come from a hilly area where everyone skiis, including my dad. I have never put on skiis in my entire life. I am much more of a summer sport person and luckily, my home region is also filled to the brim with lakes. I may not be able to skii, but damn, am I a super fast swimmer or what.

    I grew up at the base of a mountain with a ski resort. I spent many winters on the mountain.

    All goblin rituals serve a dual purpose as fertility rites, even the destructive ones. Especially the destructive ones.

    I've done both skiing and snowboarding. I'm only any good at skiing, though.

    My dad lives in Switzerland, about two hours drive from the mountains, so I've gone quite a lot. I've down a fair bit of off-piste stuff, but I prefer the slopes. I love zooming down steep slopes at high speed, it's brilliant.

    I've been snowboarding a couple of times mostly in Vermont. A few people snowboard in my hometown near the mountains but I never went there despite the proximity. I don't enjoy it that much because I hate the cold and the snow do anything involving both of those is a problem for me. I'd much rather be on a tropical island jet skiing.

    I'm Canadian so of cours I have. Plus I grew up near silver star mountain, then moved close to a place called powder king. However like Shiny I'd much rather stay in summer so I'd rather ski behind a boat, or strap what looks like a snowboard to my feet and go wake boarding any day of the week.

    Never gone skiing but I've been snowboarding a few times. I always find it a little hairy though. Trying to avoid trees, snowmen and giant boulders can be pretty stressful.

    Not as stressful as the climb up Gaea's Cliffs afterwards though.

    Oh yeah I almost died like how Sonny did. They should probably move those trees.
