The Tough Old Geezer Skier

Senior skiers are proliferating as the baby boomer group matures. However, tough old geezer skiers are in a class by themselves. The dictionary definition for a geezer is briefly "an eccentric old man". I prefer to think of tough old geezer skiers as men over 70 with individual characteristic eccentricities and idiosyncrasies that set them apart in a special way. A group of us skiing at Greek Peak Resort have chosen to identifies ourselves with name tags that state we are a "Tough Old Geezer Skier". Our friend Pat Ryan initiated us a few years ago with this recognition by awarding us our own individual pins. So Pat this start of a blog is dedicated to your inspiration to give us geezers identity.

As I have observed our group in action, I am inspired to blog about the life stories of tough old geezer skiers. For what its worth perhaps some people might be interested in the profiles of geezers really enjoying downhill skiing in their dotage. And perhaps this will be an inspiration for geezers everywhere to keep on hitting the slopes.
