Slider, I'm glad I'm not that desperate
The 'experts' I'm talking about complain all year long, getting them geared up and on the hill is a gauntlet of excuses that need to be mitigated.
It's too cold - windy - sunny- cloudy
It's too icy
It's too mashed potatoey
It's too deep
It's not fresh powder anymore
I think these alleged skiers think themselves skiers when all they do is rationalize why they won't go out the day i invite them out.
Mind you I'm at a Colorado resort where we all walk to the chair lift, no traveling, parking or other hassles associated with skiing at almost every other resort. We're particularly spoiled here.
