I grew up skiing and skiing provided the foundation for many of my fondest childhood and adulthood memories. What a bummer it is to think that our kids might not get to experience it in quite the same way. Even further with the cost of operations ever increasing at these resorts and community ski slopes, the price of lift tickets keeps rising further and further out of reach for many families.
This article made me realize how much I've taken this amazing experience for granted. In a world consumed by constant communication being out on the mountain with your family and friends with no distractions is a rare and awesome experience. Just this year while I was on a ski trip with my family, the storm clouds rolled in and my sister and I decided to take a break in a lodge while the others continued to ski. Before this moment I couldn't tell you the last time I had a chance to sit down alone with my sister and just talk. Living on different coasts our relationship is usually sustained by text messages. Looking back, this conversation was such a highlight in my year. Thank you skiing.
In short: Grab your loved ones and get out there on the mountain while you still can. Embrace that wind-chill and revel in those frozen toes, because before we know this awesome experience might be out of our reach.
