Old Skier on the Road

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 

Today the Wall Street Journal reported on an 84 year old skier who is dedicated to skiing at all ski areas in North America.  There were 700 when he started. It is a great story and should be an inspiration to all old skiers who are just happy to be able to make it to their local hill.  Those old skiers who venture beyond probably don't need inspiration.

Cool!  Love his answer to Why This Path?: "I needed something to do in retirement, so I tackled a difficult goal that keeps me healthy and happy.”  He's been working on the list for 19 years after retiring at age 65.  Has included plenty of little places, including the one in Alabama.

 

Here's the article:
