Skiing is Skiing, No Matter How Much Snow

There's not a lot of snow, they say.
In fact, it hasn't snowed at all, they say.
There isn't that much open, they say.
The Skiing is Boring, they say.

WHAT?!
I'm Sorry, What did you say?!

The skiing is boring?
You have to be wrong!
There isn't snow everywhere ...
well let me explain with a song:

Skiing is Skiing,
no matter how much snow
We turn left and we turn right,
it doesn't matter how far we go.

Every DAY it is different
Every TRAIL its own way
Every TURN's a new challenge
Every DAY you get to play

I am having a sweet time,
my ski buddies and I,
we are laughing and skiing
and sometimes I even cry.

We make our own fun,
as we play in the snow,
we don't need steeps or powder
we can go fast or even slow.

All we need is snowmakers and lifties,
just to make everything go.
And groomers, ski patrol, & park crew
to help us play in the snow.

Skiing is Skiing,
no matter how much snow
We turn left and we turn right,
it doesn't matter how far we go.

We ride the poma, the gondi 
and the really slow chair
And on the way down,
we feel the wind in our hair.

There is no reason for stopping,
unless you can't feel your legs.
We not moping in the house,
with the doldrums and dregs.

We are the ones out skiing
and having a blast.
As long as there is some manmade
and we can go really fast

My friends and I will be on the mountain,
having a hell of a time,
We'll be laughing and screaming,
and feeling wicked fine.

Because Skiing is Skiing,
no matter how much snow.
We turn left and we turn right,
It doesn't matter how far we go.

So when you're sitting at home
complaining of the weather,
just remember you could be skiing
Floating down the mountain light as a feather.


May You Find the Spirit of the Mountains Within You,
Merisa
