I started when i was around 27...began with hockey inline skates and skating on basketball courts...forced me to learn how to turn really well. Gradually got all the equip needed for ice and started playing pickups. Playing a ton really helped me. Two pickups a week as well as played in to adult hockey leauges. Plus I started playing with guys who played some college and that forced me to get my skating. After a couple of years I started playing in a much higher league...i could keep up as a defensive center because of my speed but I couldn't be as offensive against guys playing D who played college, heh. Only thing I still haven't been able to master his hockeystopping to my right...guess I'm sugarfooted, heh. Have the same problem skiing though.
