I’ve just read that the ski season in the Pacific Northwest will extended into May, and even on weekends in June at Crystal Mountain.
While I am not an accomplished skier and so, admittedly, will not be taking advantage of this longer ski season, I do wonder if there is a natural cut-off point to doing what we assume to be winter/cold weather activities well into a time that could be spent doing milder spring/summer activities. And, yes, I know that spring skiing doesn’t require the heavy clothing, but it is still a union with the cold snow (especially if one falls)!
Hmm---things like hiking, bicycling, boating, and exploring out-of-the-way small towns come to mind as we get more of these beautiful weekends this time of year.
Of course, no one ever seems to think it is unnatural to take a vacation to warmer weather climates during our cold, rainy months…
