There are many reasons why I'm uninterested in skiing. The possibility of a tumble like this ... is now on that list :)
Winter sports in general, including the various kinds of skiing, are a really big deal around here. Snowmobiling is probably the most popular, but snowshoeing, cross-country skiing, and downhill skiing all have lots of participation. None of them have appeal to me, and only partly because it involves being outside in uncomfortably cold conditions.
I love the scenic attractions of snowy and icy places – particularly streams and ponds. They look just as beautiful to me when viewed from inside a toasty warm car, perhaps with a few short walks to explore particular things. But hours on a noisy snowmobile, or puffing and panting on snowshoes or skis? Along with the risk of falls, avalanches, and prolong exposure to the cold? Not so much appeal for me :)
