inside the snow or on its top--it's all downhill from here!
SkiMyBest is devoted to your success in the skiing sport--so you will better
enjoy the winter outdoors--with tips on skiing, ski lessons, ski areas, ski
slopes, and ski instructors. The focus is alpine, or downhill, skiing, in its
"classic" form; i.e., there's a long slider under each foot, and both
usually in side the snow or on or near its top.
"If you don't learn to ski/ski better/ski my best this year, you'll be another year older (or
more) before you do."
--paraphrased from Warren Miller
