What you listen to

Music and Waterskiing goes together like Burritos and Hangovers, like Jack and Coke, like Page and Plant, like Me and Mandy Moore.

Basically, they are perfect together.


Everyone in someway shape or form has music interconnected with their skiing experiance in some way. Either a specific song they listen to to get pumped, something they listen to post-run to chill, something that reminds them of a great moment.

What we are looking to do is put together the ultimate mix-tape of music and the reasons why.

Think of that one song you hear prior to a run that makes you kick-ass, or the one that brings you back down, or the one you have in your head when you are out.

Think these songs and post them in the comment section.

Here are my favorites (edited from initial post):
1) Bubble Toes - Jack Johnson
I don't know why, but the la da da da part keeps my in the right frame of mind.
2) Dyers eve or Damage, INC - Metallica
Always good to get pumped
3) Black Betty - Tom Jones
This is when I take myself to serious
4) I need more love - Robert Randolph and the family band
5) Drum Trip - Rusted Root
Basically there whole album that everyone owns is pretty good

Send this link to your pals and ski buds. Post all your thoughts.

Don't be afraid, one song, ten songs, whatever the reason. What gets you off?


  1. here's a few:
    1. Rage Against the Machine's cover of Bob Dylan's "Maggie's Farm" --great if you have ever worked at a tyrranical ski school.

    2. Nine Inch Nials' "A warm place" -- a tune so soothing, it induces a paradoxical effect

    3. Mussorgsky's "Night On Bald Mountain" -- ski like it will raise the dead

    4. The Pixies' "Where Is My Mind?" -- something to ponder while driving home after a great, (or not-so great) set

  2. forgot one

    #5. Motley Crue, "Kickstart my Heart"

  3. Good Choices, allthough Nine Inch Nails always seems to grate on my nerves. Don't know why.

    Anyone else out there? It can't just me Rykert and the Boathouse can it?

    For some reason I love listening to 'Higher Ground' by the Chili Peppers before I slalom... and 'In the Hall of the Mountain King' pretty much before anything, because that song is the shit.
