Nope. I spent most of 4 years of college (30 weeks a year, at least 10 hours 
a week) doing RLC circuits and their derivatives, equivalent to 1200 hours. I 
spent about 2-3 weeks a year, 6 hours a day, skiiing for 5 years, equivalent 
to 100 hours. Even if I over estimated circuits by half and underestimated 
skiing by half, that's 600 hours to 200 hours. I just think mental skills are 
easier to forget.
