Skiing
UK Elle declares that skiing is a hot thing to do in 2005. I'm not quite convinsed, I hate skiing. Do you guys ski?

I'll chime in on this one... I love going down the slopes on skis, boarding or even the occasional ski bike. I think snow bunnys are deliciously cute regardless if I see them tearing up the slopes or just having a drink near the fire apres skis.

Seriously there is nothing like a good day of skiing, apres ski, hot tubbing, a fine dinner and going out dancing...

I was in Aspen last month and you can count on skiing to cost you at least $125 per day (lift ticket and ski rentals) so if you are not very adventurous and dont like the cold, just stay in town and go shopping... Then around 2:30 go to the bar at the bottom of the slopes and enjoy a beverage by the fireplace.

Of course I think most all extreme sports are hot if that is what you are passionate about. Surfing, scuba diving, snowmobiling, sky diving, etc... How can someone not look hot that just had a major workout doing something they love that happens to be challenging and adventurous?

I adore skiing, it's one of the few sports that I can actually half succeed at. We went over the winter holiday with my family, it's sort of a yearly treat for us... It's was amazing, to go flying down, and to actually know what I'm doing. I didn't fall once either. I really like that it can be independant as well as with others and that it's not so organised that you feel like you're doing sports at all. I only wish could go more often, but it ends up being pretty expensive in the end. I've decided though, that when I'm "grown-up," I'm going to save my money and buy myself a proper ski set, and go whenever I can.

I dislike skiing. I don't like the cold, and the fact that you're on such a high risk of bone fractures and scary stuff like that

Skiing? Too many yuppies in tight one piece snowsuits. Just not my style.

I snowboard all season. Gotta pick up my snowpass ASAP. Anyone wanna go boarding?

Do you mean cross country skiing? Or downhill skiing? One winter I went cross crountry skiing on a 12 km trail once every week and it's a hell of a workout. I like downhill skiing as well though but I haven't been for like 2 years..

I used to live in New Hampshire. Winter there is so long that you pretty much have to ski, otherwise you'll be shut up inside for six months.

I'm very uncoordinated and afraid of heights. So I view it as a personal triumph every time I get down the mountain in one piece. I'm never, ever cold on the mountain. Fear generates tremendous amounts of heat!
