Fave Bands to Ski To

4.6k views8 items
I have a very carefully chosen skiing playlist w 100s of diverse tracks. But this year I didn't get to update it quite enough, and God forgive me if I would listen to the same song over a 3 day period, so I found myself going back and listening to albums on the slopes. For some reason I usually gravitate to these bands when i do so.
  • Back in the day I used to ski cranking a broadcast of Oasis from Fairfax Virginia 1996 over and over again (cuz you could only fit a few cassettes in your gear along with your Walkman if you were going out all day). It has stuck with me and I never get sick of Oasis on the slopes.

    Particularly the Panopticon album, but I like all kinds of ISIS on a mountain especially late in a cloudy or whiteout day
