It's exhilarating. Sometimes it's almost like flying, with wind whipping through my hair and the feeling of weightlessness. I'm really not a roller coaster kind of person-- I dislike that the thrill and danger are out of my control.
Very little hand-eye coordination required. Cool weather. Enough said. It's the sport for me.
The serenity is overwhelming, in a good way. The deafening sound of crunching powder, the roar of the wind, and the mechanical hum of chairlift motors seem to expunge my worries, temporarily. The scenery is incredible too: the sapphire sky and blindingly white snow dotted with evergreens, and the occasional view of the great Lake Tahoe.
