    I like the tunes on when I ski. Roxy music Avalon when styling down a wide groomer Something like Paint it black by the Stones if I need to get more aggressive.

    Vanessa Mae is a recent discovery and the Red Hot tour is often of shuffle. She does the best rendition of Classical Gas ever.

    So, I'm searching and searching for this song, and give up. I click the first hit in the search, the lyrics scroll, lo and behold! This'll get us into some high energy skiing for sure.

    Rage Against the Machine has a lot of killer bomb tracks for psych up ski playlists.. Suicidal Tendencies also fills a lot of my driving MP3 disk space.

    Thanks! I never found the soundtrack tape (but I knew it existed), but I've collected several ZTT CDs (including Act, Propaganda, Frankie, Seal, etc.) so I have most of the songs from the movies...

    Know what? A violin is a terrific instrument to ski to. Capable of both stacattos as well as lonnnng drawn out notes, that are alive, like that of a soprano's. It pulls me, rather than push. Time to review Maria Callas' works for something to ski to.
