Under no circumstances should anyone sign up for this list. You will be
barraged with garbage and faced with a near impossible task of
unsubscribing.

Hi, goneskiin, while you at it, chechout this post:


T'ai-Chi-Skiing is doing downhill skiing with T'ai-Chi principles, the
harmony of Yin and Yang. (To the skier, it's the harmony of
inside/outside edges and inside/outside skis.)

Technically, T'ai-Chi-Skiing departs from the traditional
"pole-and-shovel" style of skiing. T'ai-Chi-Skiing skis without poles;
sporting a side-way stance, T'ai-Chi-Skiing uses weight shifting for
speed control and knee actions for edge control.

With such simplified skiing techniques, T'ai-Chi-Skiing is fast and
efficient. As weight shifting and knee action merge into a unified body
movement, T'ai-Chi-Skiing transcends the stereotype two ski boards into
one variable board (soft-board) that is shaped by the different
combinations of ski/edge pressures.

Such "soft" board is very flexible, thus enables the skier to "hug" the
gravity tightly and to carve-turn gracefully. Efficient and elegant,
T'ai-Chi-Skiing is an exciting new way to ski.

Internally, T'ai-Chi-Skiing in essence is to "Tui-Shou" (push hands, a
T'ai-Chi technique) with gravity. By using the technique of Nian
(sticky) to maintain a dynamic equilibrium with the gravity,
T'ai-Chi-Skiing is dancing with gravity.

When mind "sees" the trace of gravity and body "falls" with paired
gravity without hesitation, T'ai-Chi-Skiing brings the skier into the
realm of one--Unism. In Unism, the skier and gravity are "one," the
skier will have reached the state of "one with the universe."

As T'ai-Chi-Skiing transposes, the universe manifests from within.
T'ai-Chi-Skiing shows a dynamic path to T'ai-Chi. T'ai-Chi-Skiing is the
dance of the cosmos.

When Tim Leary was on the run and holed up in Switzerland, he learned
to ski and developed a number of important insights. One of them was
that (on skis, at least) the faster you go, the safer you are.

What a pity that dancing with the cosmos requires an expensive
wardrobe and equipment.

That is undoubtedly the stupidest statement with regard to skiing
and safety that I have ever heard. No one ever died skiing very
slowly (unless they were hit from behind by a mad-dogger) and several
die a year by skiing faster than they can control themselves.

Amen, but if it didn't we'd never get through the fucking lift lines.

Yeah, well (with all due respect to one of my all time heros)that probably
goes right up there with Tim's insight that the cigarettes weren't all that
bad for him. I only went skiing once, had a great day, got cockey and
wiped out on my way back down the mountain at the end of the day, damaging
my ankle badly enough that it set back my zazen for a couple of months and
still hurts when the weather turns. The "yard sale" resulted completely
from the fact that I was going to fast, given the fact that I was coming
down from an easy slope where all the folks around me were going waaaay
slower, and doing occasional panic stops.

P.K.

Actually, it is not. T'ai-Chi-Skiing adapts a theory that is "edge
pressure turns, bottom pressure runs," which means when you ski, if you
press the edge of a ski (or a snowboard for that matter), it turns, and
if you press the bottom of a ski, it runs. Skiing without poles,
carve-turning throughout a run, T'ai-Chi-Skiing is actually
"skating/riding the line that you carry [on your skis]" down the hill,
wow!

T'ai-Chi-Skiing is even more graceful [and more tiring] on three-pinners
(telemarking), the simplest functional downhill equipment.

The Dance is Free, but of course its unsafe, since it always ends in
Death.
