    Tense Form

    Winter holidays have just passed. What tense form do I need to use describing repetitrive actions that time.

    1. I went skiing every day.
    2. I used to go skiing every day.
    3. I would go skiing every day.

    If there are more than one option, which one is more frequantly used?

    Re: Tense Form

    Only the first is common, unless you have more context. Maybe you should try to write a sentence or short paragraph including the context (ie. that winter holidays are just over).
    "Winter holidays have just passed and I would/used to go skiing every day" are both wrong.
