Skiing is a dance and the mountains always lead.

A dance is defined as a series of steps and movements that match the speed and rhythm of a piece of music.

Skiing is defined as the action of travelling over snow on skis, especially as a sport or recreation.

If skiing is a dance then I fail to see where exactly the music comes into it and where there is supposed to be a rhythm. It's just going with gravity and trying to stand straight while being toppled down a steep slope.

If you are a skier you will understand the rhythm is in your head you always have a rhythm when skiing, this is a famous saying and you can only properly understand if you ski, the rhythm is... 1,2,3 turn 1,2,3 turn 1,2,3 turn and so on, you turn in a way that is so majestical that it is classed as a dance. ThankYou for reading:)
