This roller coaster of a winter season has had us skiing all kinds of terrain, with a great variety of all-natural snow conditions at play, at all elevations. From the fast grass of October to the fluffier days of Deepcember, to the high speed pasture ripping and dust-on-crust cruising of the past two weeks, Northeast skiers have been working on redefining natural-snow skiing this season. So here goes…
Skiing /skeiNG/ noun: The joyful act of sliding on something resembling snow, with two planks attached to the feet, no matter what the coverage, weather, terrain or snow conditions… A form of travel that is at once exhilarating, efficient and beautiful. An activity and pastime that should not be viewed with contempt or negativity, as Old Man Winter is a sensitive one.
Ski you out there.
