The great thing about geezer skiers and perhaps all skiers is networking. Wherever skiers assemble there are stories to be shared and experiences to be relived. And often useful advice happens unexpectedly. I was using a new set of boot heaters this morning and wondered why they wouldn't turn on. Allen B. with the same heaters straightened me out. You have to hold down the on button for a significant period of time to activate. Probably reading the instructions would have been a good idea too.
So today's skiing with an ambient temperature of 7 to 9 F and a wind chill for way below 0 F made for a longer than normal coffee break. But as some of us say "It is good to be this side of the snow".
Happy New Year everyone.
