We had a big, windy, snowstorm last weekend and early this week. Big parts of our mountain were closed most of one day due to high winds, heavy snow, and avalanche danger. The visibility was crap, some of the snow was right on the border of the R-word, and riding the chairlifts was miserable.
We loved it.
It got me to wondering whether there are other sports where the participants actually look forward to bad weather?
Off the top of my head, I'm thinking maybe windsurfers, sailors, and duck hunters might like fairly bad weather but does any other sport actually get rewarded when the weather is at its worst?
