Love skiing - have tried to ski every continent - when I lived in Europe, skied at least once a month, sometimes twice during the season along with a week long trip. Skied in CO and Italy (Dolomiti) last year.

Have had both my ACLs reconstructed due to ski accidents (both in Switzerland) - so ski slower now and tend to go for groomers - still love it. There's nothing like being on top of a mountain and looking down and then gliding down feeling the wind on your face. That was the most amazing feeling after my first ACL recovery - will never forget it - was in Zermatt.....lots of work to get there.

My goal is to ski until my 70's - 80's if I can even if it's only on a bunny hill :-)

Long ago when I lived in Colorado, I skied nearly every weekend and hit practically every ski area in the state.
Now, pushing 70, I just schedule one trip out west per year. By the end of my skiing week I'm exhausted, but I still have a great time even though it's practically all on blue slopes.
