ski racing isn't just about the tight suits

I have tears rolling down my cheeks at the moment; big fat salty drops that carve wet trails down my cheeks, some falling into my mouth, some mixing into my hair.

Well, truth is, I’m actually not crying at the moment, I just felt like opening this post up with a couple of over dramatic sentences. Its just how I roll.

So, the reason why I’m ‘crying’, you ask? I’m bawling my eyes out because it’s the end of the ski season, and pretty much the end of my social life for the rest of the year…until, maybe some point in the spring/summer when I actually get around to hanging out with my school friends. That almost sounds weird: school friends and ski friends. It’s like they’re two exclusive gangs or something…

I’m getting off track here.

You see, since it’s the end of the ski season, the mountains are closing (even though Revelstoke got a whole new bucketful of fresh pow last weekend), Whistler (my home mountain) will be closing up shop and Blackcomb Glacier will be the only thing open eventually. (Yay, I love slush)

So in celebration of the 2013 ski season, I wanted to make you guys a playlist of   the best ski tunes of this year (this is according to my sixteen year old brain, so hello to you middle-aged to senior skier/people, I will not have any Barbara Streisand on here, sorry)

So, here it is, I did post some YouTube links if you wanted to listen. Enjoy!

  1. Silhouette (Original Mix) by Avicii  
  2. Don’t You Worry Child by Swedish House Mafia
  3. Feel Again by One Republic (DJ Kue Remix)
  4. Spectrum (Say My Name) by Florence + The Machine (Calvin Harris Remix)
  5. Spaceman by The Killers
  6. Diet Mountain Dew by Lana Del Rey
  7. Part of Me by Katy Perry (Mia Moretti and Caitlin Moe Remix) 
  8. Animal by Miike Snow
  9. Punching in A Dream by The Naked And Famous
  10. Deadbeat Summer by Neon Indian
  11. Dreams and Disasters by Owl City 
  12. Take A Walk by Passion Pit
  13. American Girl by Dave Edwards and Silver Medallion 
  14. Shark in The Water by VVBrown (Louis La Roche Remix)
  15. In Da Club  by 50 Cent (B.C Ski Team theme song, they make videos about their adventures, how sick is that?)

That’s all for now, everyone! Hopefully you enjoyed the playlist (there is not ranking order), feel free to add any more songs that you think should have been added below in the comments!

Hope you had a great season, see you around

Ski racing is supposed to be a tough sport. No whining, complaining, moping or wimping about. However, there are always those people that can’t seem to just pull up their socks and just tough it out. But NO, their fingers are cold, or their hair is too tangled. Yeah, well….you know know what? MY WHOLE BODY HURTS.

But they just keep going off about how: the course is to long, the gates should be softer because they hurt too much.

So I just stand there thinking:

But I guess you’ll get those types in any sport, but ski racing is one of those that put up with it, but eventually those kids never continue, for if you don’t love it, then why do it, as my dad would always say to me.

Just a little short post before I go and pack my 1000 and three ski items before we go and move into our cabin tomorrow. Which will clearly look like this:

 

Ski season has officially begun!!!

Cheers,
