I did meet and play with this guy recently who talked nothing about his game but hit a mile from the tips. I have never seen anyone hit that far and that accurately, AND is humble about it.

I have played behind plenty of guys who played from the wrong tees, barely made it on the fairway, then get all excited about their “350yd drives”...

The female golfers I know don’t talk much about their game or how far they hit. They like to gossip about something else. But...I have met a gazillion female skiers who are posers!!!!! I am in a couple skier forums where we actually do meet up to ski together. Most from the women forum think they are higher levels than what they really are! I kid you not! They all claim they are advanced/expert level skiers and yet when I finally skied with them, I realized they are, at best, advanced beginners. Oh my...but not a single male skier I have met claimed to be more than what they really are.

Hi Ace:

Yes, golfers who have game don't talk about it and let their sticks do the talking....oh ya...the POSER on Tuesday also said his prior scores were in the 70's.....he sulked many chips and every time he said he never does this....LMAO.

A Korean lady I used to golf with (she moved back to Korea) said she didn't like to golf with some Koreans because they gossiped too much. Back in Feb...my friend got paired up with 3 Koreans....they started to chat and then the Koreans started to gossip about a woman....that woman was the lady I just mentioned....LOL.

That's hilarious....I've never met a ski POSER, never mind a female ski POSER......so are these female ski POSER's just ski bunnies in their $2000+ Descente outfits who just hang out in the bar for ski apres???

25 years ago....a co-worker from Toronto was out here for business....he had never skied Whistler...so he stayed the weekend. On the drive up...he said he skis the black diamond runs back in Ontario. Ontario doesn't have 'REAL' mountains....700" vertical....while Whistler/Blackcomb has 5300' of vertical drop.

So I take him to a groomed blue run as our 1st run to get our legs warmed up.....he wouldn't go down this run....he ended up diverting to the green run....LMAO....I ended up just meeting up with him at the chair lifts for the rest of the day.

Skiing is so expensive now....a full rack rate one day lift ticket at Whistler is $200 including taxes....WTF.

So is Taos the best ski hill in NM?...where do you ski?....you getting a season's pass?....Covid will likely restrict the # of skiers per lift chair/gondola.

I have 3 local ski hills only 15 minutes to switch back up the mountain to the parking lot.....Cypress Mountain held the 2010 Olympic mogul events.

I lost my drive a few weeks ago and I was terrible when I played with this guy. I had to remind myself to not say “I am usually better than this” 😂 Thank goodness I found an instructor who spotted the issue and corrected it immediately. I am back, stronger and better than before. I was starting to drive ~210yds on average, then poof! I was back down to 160 if I am lucky. Now I am creeping into the 220-230 range but my husband kindly reminded me that air is thinner at Paako🙄 I also drop my loft to 8 degrees.

Yes, Taos is the best MOUNTAIN in NM. It is about 4 hours from home. I am still planning to move up there in December and stay until March. I just bought my season pass...$1600+tax. OUCH! Last year was only $950 and they will limit capacity to 50%. I am not sure what is more expensive - ski or golf. I ski about 70 days a season so the pass is still a better deal than buying a daily ticket. But skis are expensive - I buy a pair every season and they are about $2000, and I do private week lessons too just to ski with a former world champion racer (he is from Canada). A former gold medal Olympian just joined Taos so I want to ski with her this season too! Damn...I may need to get a job or my husband can moonlight...

And the female ski posers sound like your guy. Most are from the East with experience on ski hills. Not mountains. Their black diamond is equivalent to a green at Taos. Sure they can “come down” in one piece but that’s not the same as being able to SKI IT🙄 They all talk like they are master carvers but they are barely turning parallel...my goodness..delusional!   I am a much better skier than I am a golfer, and I consider myself an intermediate at Taos if anyone asks me.  I think it is ok to be a poser in golf - worse that can happen is a bruised ego, but in skiing, it can kill you...

Hi Ace:

@FlyingAce

So what was wrong with your driver swing that got corrected by the instructor?

Your husband is correct....NM is at approximately 5000' elevation......so your ball will travel quite a bit further than what you find here in Vancouver at sea level or vacation i Hawaii.

So are you going to rent a place at Taos for 4 months?....skiing 70 times a season is A LOT of skiing....good for you....even $1600 for a pass is considered somewhat cheap still.

I thought you had bum knees that impede you from walking a lot with golf....wouldn't your bum knees affect your ability to ski and ski many times?

Huh...WTF....you spend $2000 each year on new skis???....you are so SPOILED......I guess HAPPY WIFE...HAPPY LIFE...is your husband's motto?.....or maybe he doesn't have a choice😁.......I haven't skied since 2005.....I think my last skis I bought in 1999???....were $300 and I think I installed my old bindings......what skis do you have now?

With local accommodations, ski passes, new ski equipment & apparel each year and high level private ski instructions...ya .....you may spend more on skiing vs. golf.....at this rate your husband may ask you to quit both and you can only play tennis on the free public tennis courts in NM without instructors.🤣 

In the past...my company bought ski teaching packages from Ski Escapes for customer entertainment....I hosted some customers up at Whistler....our instructors were Karen Stemmele and Lisa Savejari (sp??)....past Canadian ski Olympians....they were so crazy good even in retirement....at one point they were skiing backwards talking to us while instructing the group.

Based on the below link on ski ability from Whistler ski school....do you still consider yourself an intermediate skier?

My swing was fine. What changed was somehow my weight was on my toes, causing my body to dip forward at impact, catching the heel of the driver. Not sure why I was doing that but I did get new shoes a few weeks ago. As soon as I adjusted my weight distribution, everything was back to normal. I better still be able to hit at least 160 when I play at sea level or I am quitting golf😒😂

Yup, still have shoulder and knee pain after golf but that doesn’t stop me from playing. Neither will bad knees stop me from skiing. As soon as I see snow (or grass for golf), all pain goes away😅 Instead of golfing/skiing every day, I do every other day now. 

I am a level 5.5 in both skis and snowboard according to your link. I don’t ride parks and I don’t jump off cliffs. 

Here’s my quiver - I don’t have all in one photo. I got rid of 3 and narrowed it down to 5 pairs last season: Stockli Laser AX, Kastle MX Limited, Kastle MX84, Kastle MX89, Kastle FX96. I can probably add one more if we ever get more snow...

Less than 2 months of golf left for me. I am feeling sad - maybe I should go play 9 now...

Btw, I played Varsity tennis in high school and I have played enough tennis for my lifetime...

Hi Ace

@FlyingAce

LOL....you're OUT OF CONTROL....5 pairs of skis and a 6th pair coming...that's whacked....just did a Google...and Kastle skis aren't cheap....so with bindings you have $10,000 worth of skis....let me guess....you have 3 ski boots in rotation.....let me guess you have 6-10 pairs of golf shoes....I have 4 pairs of golf shoes in rotation.

Didn't know you snowboard too....I have never snowboard....I wanted to find some friends who have never snowboard and try it once but that never happened.

If you consider yourself a 5.5 skier....and a 5,5 cap golfer....I think you're a better golfer than skier....I got my cap down to 6.7 recently and consider myself a far superior golfer vs. skier.

I'm a 5.5 skier too....my right leg paralysis and atrophy limits me from going up level because of the limits in my right foot movement.....my ski accident happened in 1987....I was surprised to even get back up on skis and even play golf too...I thought I'd walk the rest of my life with a cane....but I do wear a plastic ankle&foot orthtotic.

So are you working with an instructor to ski the steeps and tight moguls with more confidence?

Didn't know you played varsity HS golf...you're quite the little jockette.😁.........I still find it hard to believe you find it difficult to find regular golf partners or have golfers invite you to play....makes no sense to me.

Kastle and Stockli are both very expensive but worth every penny! Lol you guessed WRONG! I only have one pair of ski boots. It is fitted and has a pair of very expensive insoles in there - I can only afford one pair so no point getting extra boots to rotate. I also only have 1 pair of golf shoes😂😂 They are regular walking shoes and I only switch out when they are worn.

Yup I do both, actually I was a better snowboarder until I started taking race clinic and got hooked!

I just finished 18 and shot an 81. I am happy with my score but I really struggled.  Lost my distance again😡 I have not shot double bogeys in a long time but had a few today. Oh well. Will try again tomorrow!

Hi Ace:

Typo...I meant Varsity tennis....not golf.

Hmmmm...if you have custom ski boots with fitted sole orthtics....those puppies are worth a lot.

HUH....you only have one pair of golf shoes....is that because your husband keeps on tripping over your 50+ pairs of shoes in the walk-in closet and only gave you $100 for golf shoes.

In a way...I think golf shoes are a SCAM....I have golf in running shoes....not much difference for me...just a bit less traction....I've decided to go to Gortex trail running shoes to play golf in our winter MUCK.

So your instructor(s) are focused on teaching you gates....we did a clinic on gates at a charity Ronald McDonald House event at Whistler it was fun...the high level skiers and pros can really lean into those gates.

Are you back to hitting heels shots on your driver?.....contact is most critical.....on the face of recent TM drivers..... if your rub some water on the face and then hit a shot....you can see your impact.....I always want to know where I hit the club face on all shots.

Too bad your new club is so far away...you'd play more often if it was closer....the weather turned for the better today....so gonna do twilight later and more golf on Monday....Thanksgiving dinner tomorrow and rain.

Have you noticed my new avatar?....it's me 55 years ago🤣...find the attached video...it went viral....I think you've seen it before.....that missed putt cost me 2 skins.😁

Ya learn something new everyday....I never knew "Ski POSERS" existed.

In male dominated golf forums....it's great to have female forum members like @FlyingAce to share a few laughs with...she's a nice lady and a PLAYA too😁...it's great to read her posts of spending all her husband's money on all her expensive toys.

I'm sure you can....does that mean you are going to get fit for a new bag of Parson's POSER PXG clubs with the most expensive shaft upgrades....heck while you're at it...why not a new fitted Scotty.🤣

But I think your husband is saving a bit of cash...didn't you say you're not much of a clothes hound...some women's apparel can run up to $1000 per outfit...not including the shoes....I've seen some stupid expensive women's clothes at Par Tee Golf here...rich Asians are their target market.....lots of size 0 and 2's...LOL.

I play fine with my 4 years old clubs - I don’t think expensive clubs/clothes would help with my game, so no thanks! I do have 3 Scotty already, no need for more either...I can, however, use a new car...so...😉

Here’s my pretty Scotty...
