I sing songs to myself occasionally. Couldn't ski with tunes on from an exterior source, it would disrupt my concentration.

I used to ski with music, and it is a ton of fun. Skiing with everyone on the same tunes sounds like a blast.

Now I've always got a camera, and often a phone - it's just feels like too much to deal with.

It's all I can do to take pictures and keep up.

Like SBR I tend to sing to myself.

"Danger Zone" from the movie Top Gun when facing icy headwalls, moguls, etc...



And "The Road to Shambala" when conditions are really good...



I know they aren't the greatest tunes, but they pop in to my head.

I ski with music. It's fun to have a good song on but not so loud that you can't hear somebody coming. A little AC/DC in the mogals can't be beat.

I ski by myself way too often to not listen to music..have a selection of songs that get me going. I've noticed I push myself more and go a little faster out of my comfort zone if I'm listening to music. Otherwise I'm too careful.

Unless its a day of very difficult conditions, then I usually leave my MP3 player in the bag so I don't kill myself..

BT equipped Smith Variant helmet and I'm good to go.  Volume up on the way down and down on the way up!

I'm an outlier.  Never.  Actually that's not quite true as I think I skied with a Walkman a couple times back in the 80s.   I don't own an Ipod thing.  To me, the sound of the snowguns is music enough.

Never.  I like to hear everything going on around me.  And I don't need any kind of music to motivate me to ski better.  I ski well enough.  ;-)

I'm with ADK Jeff and Mattchuck. Never. When I am really focused on making turns music is a distraction.
