    Do any of you skiers or boarders have tunes playing whilst you ski/board?

    At a safe low volume, a bit of music in your lugholes can be great to focus your mind and build a rhythm whilst you head downhill!

    I've been on Google play searching for the elusive best tracks to download. A bit of Euro dance seems to be the way to go. I suppose similar music could easily be suitable for anything from the gym to running too.

    Faves so far for me are Town Called Paradise by Tiesto, True by Avicii and Motion by Calvin Harris.(y)

    Any other suggestions? This is Motorhome Fun and I AM expecting silly humorous ideas too!:groan:

    We have a theory on that Michelle!
    If you are relaxed and skiing with a good rhythm, you are more predictable in your movements. Anyone overtaking you will find it easier to figure out where you are headed and not hit you!
    Also, wear something camouflaged, ie a white jacket! Novices at anything will always look at what they want to avoid and then subconsciously end up hitting it anyway! A bright colourful jacket makes you more visible and a better unintentional target! (y)

    Shell was always a snowboard magnet, this year she bought a new white jacket and didn't get taken out once!
