    I started grass skiing with Horst Locher in 1976 at Bryce Mountain Resort in Virginia which is the home of Grass Skiing in America. We had shirts then that said Ski Your Grass Off at Bryce Mountain Resort. We lubricated the rollers back then with automatic transmission fluid and oil. It made them roll faster. We then cleaned them at the end if the day with palmolive dish soap and a hose sprayer. Helped me carve my turns.

    Late last June I skied the "No Trespassing" grass slope at Pepperdine College in Malibu. Great weather and an ocean view. Early July I skied at Presidio Park in San Diego, it was a bit hot. Last Sunday I skied at Emigrant Lake in Ashland Oregon and it was hotter than it should be. There's not enough snow here for our Mt. Ashland ski park to open. Grass skiers are the only skiers in So.OR right now. I have 5 pairs and have introduced 8-9 locals to the sport so far. -We kinda gotta little grass ski thing go'n on! It just adds to the excellent mountain biking, hiking, river rafting, snow sports, disc golf, etc, we do here. Roll on everyone…

    I can't believe anyone could be negative about Grass Skiing. I'm thinking those who are, couldn't launch themselves down these un-groomed grassy slopes that are steeper than the vids show, at speeds higher than you think. It's WAY harder than it looks and can be unforgiving if you get it wrong. It's not a poor alternative to snow skiing, it's it's own thing. If you look up at a green hill and think it would be fun to ski it… well… we do it. And, BTW, it was just another thing that we did. We lived close enough to Lake Tahoe to do snow skiing day-trips, we raced moto-cross in the late 70's, we were on the forefront of BMX and mountain biking, plus Ultimate Frisbee, were into karate… and more… how about you haters? Ever do anything of note? Have I seen you in a Warren Miller movie?

    Yep, I remember this. It's great… until you fall and you have ANY exposed skin.

    Now take any major wipeout done while skiing and put it in this context with no soft snow to fall into… well I guess that's one way to thin the herd. Keep on skiing awesome 80's bros!
