skiing is fun and if it was so easy to suicide with it i wouldn't be here
extreme sports cost money and are dangerous guys
Skiing itself isnt that expensive wtf. skiing trips are
Used to ski a lot, it's just the same as most "extreme" sports really, people love the risk and the thrill of it. Plus if you wear all the proper safety gear then as long as you're on properly managed slopes (and you're trained ofc), you're pretty much safe as can be.
Can't speak for people that like going backcountry, I wouldn't myself, but it's understandable I guess, as long as they have the necessary skill to not fuck themselves up.
you answered your own question
"Why do people like skiing so much? It's expensive af and dangerous as hell."
Expensive? You can literally just rent skis & a helmet for pretty cheap $$$.
Dangerous? Everything is dangerous mate, you could cross a street and get hit by a car, you could trip down the stairs & crack your skull, i mean... lol.
I dont ski since i have no interest in it, but i think its really nice to go up north in Sweden just because its chill with some nature & having friends & family up there since i live in a concrete jungle aka Stockholm. I mean you could party etc with friends if you want.
What ? Skiing isn't dangerous wtf ? I've been skiing my whole life and never felt really in danger, even tho I ski fast. Just wear some protections and it's just the best sport
apre ski is more dangerous than actual skiing. 100%
It's fun as heck and great exercise. It also is a great way to get outdoors. I would rather live 10 years with skiing than 15 without imo. The fluidity of gliding down the mountain between the trees or that moment or two of weightlessness after hitting a jump are amazing. Some of my best memories are from skiing man. I am definitely not giving up on it any time soon.
Skiing is the best shit ever.
Dude I live in a town when I can reach mountain in 10 minutes by car. Never fond of it but 70% of the town are and it feels amazing seriously. Im just another person.
skiing is fun af. flying down a slope 50mph is lit.
opens thread about skiing being dangerous after reading that German former olympic dude killed himself skiing
It's like any other expensive things. If you like it a lot, then you will pay the price.
There is no explanations possible, either you like it and you understand, either you don't and you don't understand.
I reckon we should all sit at home and play cs #incelgang, brought to you by some german hltv user :)
its fun. dont be a dick. you dont need to go 100mph.
ive been skiing and snowboarding all my life and never hurt anybody.
i agree with you OP
having played basketball coaches always recommended and advised against skiing as its dangerous and you could get bad knee/leg injuries
No if you have helmet and full kev
csgo way better
Couple things about skiing
Fat chicks don’t ski so if u looking for a nice good looking girl with a nice tight body go skiing.
U ever seen a ugly girl pull off her skiing mask???? Nope me ether.
Girls with 5 kids(unless married) don’t go skiing to expensive to take all the rugrats
Broke girls don’t go skiing. If she is out with a couple of her friends skiing she must have a decent job.
If u are looking for a girl skiing is the best place to find one.
Considering I tried it, I didnt like it one bit, too much hard work and high risk.
skiing is for beta cucks
snowboarding is where its at my dudes and dudettes
It is not that much expensive, especially for us northerners with ski stations not far.
Ofc it has a cost, especially if you don't live in a station, but everything has. And has a hobby it is not that expensive. Even compared to competitive video game that bring us here.
About its danger, and I'm someone who broke his spine among other things in an "extreme" sport incident (kite surf), as I was in deep in snowboarding before, it can be dangerous indeed.
But if you ski by the rules, danger is very low, especially death threat. To a point it is probably less dangerous to ski in regular ways than taking an highway to launch with your grand mother 50 km away.
Ofc, people going on wild path, and it worth not just for skiing but for everything, take a bigger risk, but I believe we do that willingly and knowing very well what risks we are exposing ourselves to.
So at the end, even those people, perhaps less reasonable than others (and we would have to debate between reason and consciousness here), but still reasonable for most of them chose to live that way and can't be considered in regular skiing statistics.
Furthermore, better die in a 100m high fall during an off road trip in eternal snow than hit by a car while going to a miserable job if you ask me.
Skiing is probably the safest "extreme sport" there is
Alpine skiing is too easy, one doesn't even break a sweat doing that. I prefer high intensity cross-country skiing with the taste of blood in my mouth. Then sauna afterwards, best feeling ever.
In what fucking world does skiing cost money? Do you mean ski resorts and bullshit like that?
Imagine not liking skiing in 2019 because of money and risk/reward benefits omegalul
i love it way too much, been skiining like ever since i know myself. I freeride a lot.
If you dont freeride and arent too dumb with your decision there literally no chance for you to get injured, just ski on your skill level, stay on track and dont be a retard to go freeride if u cant do it.
We need to travel less. Period.
If you like skiing, situate yourself so that you can pursue that hobby. Although some energy and effort is required to maintain an environment suitable for the average skier, it's still a relatively harmless hobby. When I say harmless, I mean for everything else but you. Other people and nature. It might be harmful to you but it's your choice to ski so...
There's plenty of worse things to be doing, like anything involving guns, cars, airplanes, golf courses... long list.
Every sport can be dangerous done incorrectly. For example:
Football (Soccer) going for a tackle wrong could lead to a broken leg.
Rugby/American Football: enough said; Paralysis, Death, Broken Bones
Baseball: Incorrect Catching could lead to face injuries or black eyes

if you think this about skiing you should try snowboarding. its great i nearly die almost every run! though usually because of people on skis thinking they own the fucking mountain
I don't think it is that dangerous tho tbh, what can make it risky is dangerous environment or if u do crazy jumps and such xd...
skiing and snowboarding is great :D
Its not that dangerous but I dont enjoy it much...
