I’ve always thought a “good start” was overrated anyway.
Frankly, I’d rather still be skiing in leftovers seeping into May rather than putting the rush on the season in November and December. That doesn’t settle the itch to pop into my bindings for the first time. It is just a sense of patience that I’ve always kept knowing that the best was always yet to come.
But this? This is ridiculous.
As if the pandemic and all the travel restrictions related to it weren’t already putting a damper on the 2020-21 skiing and riding season, there’s the matter that it feels a heck of a lot like October outdoors these days. Even if we are fewer than four weeks away from the Christmas season.
