More generally, I wonder whether I should give skiing another chance.
I've been thinking that the next time I go skiing, I'll probably try snowboarding. My legs aren't as good as they used to be, but I was lucky enough to be taught to ski on technically demanding terrain as a teenager, so the kind of skiing I like to do consists of ticking off black runs and interesting-looking bits of off-piste I see on the way. Bumps'n'rocks'n'ice :-) Snowboarding would bring the challenge back to easier routes, and let me challenge myself while staying with my friends.
Then again, if I go skiing with my Scottish friends, they'll probably all humiliate me with their elegance, poise and technical accomplishment on near-vertical ice :-)
