Spring Skiing Day

   The geezer skiers were out in big numbers today.  Temperatures were to rise to near 60 F and the snow had been groomed to perfection.    With several days of warm temperatures expected, everyone was anxious to take advantage of the waning days of the season in the bright sun and blue sky conditions.   Because the snow turns to glue later in the day, we extended our early morning session late into the morning before we took a coffee break.
   The coffee break was full of lively conversation and had a couple of questions to be answered.   What are the four states in the four corners area of the United States?   The combined wisdom of the geezers was not sufficient to come up with a definitive answer.   (The Four Corners is a region of the United States consisting of the southwestern corner of Colorado, northwestern corner of New Mexico, northeastern corner of Arizona and southeastern corner of Utah.)   I think we guessed most of it correctly when we came up with Utah as the fourth state.   The other question was, how does Craig's List make money?  Answer:  Some commercial outfits are charged for their services.  Conversation also strayed to the question of who has smart phones.   I think only one of the geezers had one so I guess you know you are a geezer if you don't have a smart phone.
   After a long coffee break, most of the group was ready to hang it up for the day.   Andy and I decided to give it another go and spent another hour or so coping with the changing conditions.  By the time we were through our legs were burning from the effort.   Really a great day of spring skiing.
