What's to be loved about skiing?

Many years ago, if someone had asked me that very question, I would have had this short answer: “Because skiing frees me from gravity and makes me believe I fly...”

Sure there are many more reasons than that cursory reply of mine. Finding oneself in an enchanted and totally magical setting, for many, in a totally different weather environment, for even more finding a form of easy, yet full form of physical exercise.

Today, I would say that skiing is all of the above, but is best at bringing escape from the cares and tension of daily life.

Yes, a form of relaxation in motion or an active mediation are the largest and most potent benefits that skiing brings to me these days!
