At Tenjindaira, you earn your turns by using the gondola. There's enough time to do some work and finish up a few projects, make some calls and have some tea and scones on the way up.

Actually, I asked for his opinion.

So, thank you, SKI.

Well, I'd be jolly upset of course.

But at least you're not threatening to smash my head in like you usually do, so that's a relief!

I'm giving some thought to gearing up and taking a shot at back country, not because of any ``earn your turns'' nonsense but due to the overcrowding at Hokkaido resorts that's making it more and more difficult to get the goods.

I like to urn my terns.

Though that probably belongs in the Monkey in a Bucket thread.

Perhaps you could explain to me why it isn't?

You like expending more energy than is necessary to do something that you enjoy?
Does it make it better?
I don't think so.

I earn my turns by having to get up at the ridiculously early time of 8am to make the first lifts at Mt Granview or Maiko Snow Resort.

Well.....so far in this life of mine I've....earned my.. stripes, keep, chops, wings, scars, living, some people's trust, and salt...

"Earning my turns" needs much, much further attention.. :wave:

I don't think so.

Since I don't get out much I generally like lots of lift-served laps. If I lived in snowcountry though, I'd probably hike more often. I dunno, Mr. Ski, I think it's kind of fun to walk up a big mountain sometimes. - not trying to get all spiritual or any of that shit, but you know -- feel the energy of it all without the crowds, that sort of thing. You should try it. You might even like it.
But don't listen to me, I live on Shikoku <<GRAEMLIN_URL>>/shifty.gif
