January 04, 2011 (KATAKAMI / RIA NOVOSTI) — Russian President Dmitry Medvedev has accepted Arnold Schwarzenegger’s proposal to go skiing.

“@Schwarzenegger: Thanks. We agreed – I remember. We’ll definitely find the time,” Medvedev wrote on Twitter.

Action movie star Schwarzenegger, who on Monday stepped down as California governor, earlier used his Twitter account to invite the Russian leader to ski with him.

Medvedev, one of whose hobbies is mountain skiing, wished good luck and success in new undertakings to the “Governator” on Monday.

Schwarzenegger, 63, was California’s Republican governor for seven years. He was first elected to the post in October 2003 and was re-elected in November 2006. Arnold left office with low approval ratings as the state is mired in debt and high unemployment.

As Schwarzenegger left, many are asking what the actor-turned-politician will do next. The possibilities include continuing work on environmental and reform issues, writing an autobiography and making a big Hollywood comeback.

Medvedev met with Schwarzenegger last summer, when the then governor showed him the Silicon Valley. Schwarzenegger came to Russia last fall at the head of a delegation of high-tech executives and venture businessmen and visited the high-tech research hub of Skolkovo.  (*)
