It's the end of December, the new year just around the corner and I am ready to hit the slopes. Just one small problem....no snow yet. While we did have a big storm back on Halloween, since then the weather ha been downright balmy. It finally turned cooler about a week or so ago, and the moutains have been churning out snow as best they can, but sadly 21st century snow making technology cannot compete with the awesome power of mother nature. I'm sure that she is just saving up and biding her time before hitting us with a monster storm. In the meantime, my new skis are sitting here waiting for that day. I can't wait!
