Warren Miller always warned us, “If you don’t do it this year, you’l be one year older when you do.”
But with all due respect to the legendary ski filmmaker, last season left for much to be desired. In many cases, New Englanders couldn’t do it last year. Aside from a few stretches here and there, the Northeast thirsted for natural snow. Which left plenty of to-do lists unfulfilled.
So, here we are, one year older…
A skier’s aspirations in November normally outweigh reality. Like an incessant Christmas list, there isn’t enough time — or, frankly, money — to do everything we originally planned to that season. Right now, I am considering booking a winter trip to Japan. The chances of me going are less than one percent, and that sliver of allowance might only be made possible by PowerBall. But hey, maybe, right?
