from a mountain top is breathtaking. You are dancing toward the valley below, and experience the grandeur of nature with your capability to play in it. Your proficiency grows with every run as you hug the fall line or sail wide open radius turns, add dynamic rhythm and flow. Just like in dancing you let choreography unlock an other world. Your world.
For now a bit of history: SKIING in America caught fire around the 60's, when hundreds of local lift installations and most of todays major ski resorts erupted onto the scene. Stratton Mountain opened it's doors in fall of 1961 and introduced the sport on a high level with the iconic skier Emo Henrich: Notice the smooth flow from one turn into the other, while you effortlessly hoover along. A key for this freedom on skis is in finetuning Edge play.
What a wonderful activity, though, it is seasonal for most of us unless you rock the ski shuffle all year long. The shuffle is not a specific dance but has its roots in other dance types like, jazz, or swing, or blues. We just take a rhythm and freely interpret it our way. (More under Music, Ambiance & Dance.}
