Summer is a wonderful time. Blue skies and warm temperatures and tans and swimming. Summer can also be the opposite of a good time. What with bugs and 100-plus degree heat waves there are times that even the non-skier among us might miss winter and the beauty that it brings.
What is there to miss about winter? Glad you asked.
Close to the end of the dog days of summer many weather prediction agencies start looking towards the future and what the winter season may bring. Like many things in the ski industry, we try to take weather predictions with a grain of salt. No matter what the weatherman might predict, we always err on the side of optimism because that’s what winter sports enthusiasts do! After all, we’re the ones who decided it was FUN to be outside when the snow and temperatures are falling. Optimism is just in our nature.
