Ugh, hopefully Friday will be day 3 for me. I gave up skiing on the weekends. I hope to get 10 days in this season. With small kids, its just difficult.

Never been, way out of my price range and I have zero interest in that.

I'm fortunate that I don't have to deal with the I-70 sh!tshow. I try to ski twice a week when work allows. Some years I get 40 days, some 25.

And if you are "older", not worth it to even try.

Like all sports you have to learn very young (I was 4) to be any good at it.

I started golf in my 30's and totally suck at it. Tiger Woods is a great example of when to learn (!).

I totally disagree. My mom didn't take up skiing until she moved to CO in her mid-40s. She's an excellent skier.

I agree with the disagreement. I didn't start until I was in college.

Me bad- I should have said it would be hard to be an "elite" skier if you learn later in life, just like all sports.

Even elite athletes slow down later in life- Tom Brady excepted (!).

How many hobby skiers have the goal of being elite? You stated that if you were older it wasn’t even worth it to try. I think that’s ridiculous.

My 75 year old dad still goes skiing 2 days a week. His goal is to have fun, just like most of us.

He sure won't be learning to ski at that age (!).
