There was a lot of press coverage last month about the annual flu epidemic. I think it hit this time a little harder than some years. Just curious, how many folks had their skiing adversely effected by bad colds or flu this winter? It really stinks when this happens on a much anticipated major ski trip. I had a cold during a recent trip and was able to ski through it, but not the most pleasant. I get a flu shot almost every fall and one of my conscious motivators is the hope of lessening chance of flu during upcoming ski season/trips. Some of my trip companions had issues beyond colds and more like the flu and lost ski time.
Just part of life, or do you guys have ways to improve your chances of staying away from colds and flu during ski season?
