This is old but sheds some light on the skiing

PlanetSKI | News | Bono in Verbier

Quote:
Bono has been skiing before and so has the lead guitarist of U2, The Edge.

The Edge skied in Val d'Isere a few years ago and his instructor from the time said afterwards "I taught The Edge to edge!"

I found it

Quote:
Up too early with everyone looking wrecked. Arrive in Denver and Edge discovers a ski resort 50 miles up country. The four of us head off. It had to be hushed up as a broken leg at this stage of the tour would not be welcome. Stories were fabricated and changed so that no one had any idea where we were. It was a lovely drive through the Rockies to the resort. Once there, Edge organises the activities, as he is the experienced amateur. We get our skis on and Bono falls over immediately. We potter about on the nursery slopes under Edge’s instructions. I eventually feel confident enough to try my luck on the mountain. I wish I hadn’t. I’ve never been so frightened in all my life. To reach the top of the mountain we have to hang on chair lift, hundreds of feet above the ground with no safety bar. I was so hysterical I would have gladly thrown myself off had Edge not kept me talking.


At the top it soon becomes obvious that I had been over optimistic. I tell Edge to go off and enjoy himself, I’ll walk down. The mountain very nearly claimed me. Edge goes up and down twice in the time it takes me to walk. Then he did a black slope. As you might know black slopes are very serious. And then some, like black holes and black belts. We retire to the bar for the only bit of ski I like — apres ski and Gluewein. We make the mistake of ordering Irish Coffees, which are barely coffee and certainly not Irish. The cream comes from one of those aerosol jobs and there’s a nasty green mint liqueur to boot. Once back in the hotel we decide to go and see Reds. It’s a good film but I felt it lost its punch in places, but maybe that’s because I was so tired.
Adam Clayton in his tour diary, 1982

Gluewein is a MUST when you're on skiing holidays

A sled would be my preferred mode of transport back down the mountain.

Or, you know, a piggyback ride on Bono's back. (With him NOT on skis.)

I guess that's Eve. Hard to tell with the bank robber look.

At least they have lots of snow. I live in Austria, not that far away from Switzerland, but we have no snow at all and temperatures are like in spring.

It's funny reading about their skiing experince since I'm Northern-Norwegian and had to learn skiing from the day I could walk. The result is that I can't understand why rich people would pay to stumble around in snow and freezing temprature. I'd rather get sunburned in the South of France.
