It's early to crank it up, maybe, but the calendar's climbing the slope of the year, and if you're like me, you're wondering when you can scrape off the storage wax and hit the mountain!
Once there's chill in late-August mornings, summer's over. Snow may take forever to show up, but the heart's already skiing.

Average or better? Time will tell.
