As I write this morning I can look out the window and see a couple of inches of snow on the ground and a snow shower in progress. Ridiculous! The ski areas are closed, my skis are on the way to storage, ski clothing has been washed and cleaned and the inside of my helmet sprayed with Febreeze. (How else does one maintain a good smelling helmet?) Here is my attitude about this new snowfall.
"If I can't ski on it, I don't want it". Also an irony that I had my snow tires replace with all weather tires yesterday.
So where do we find pleasure in the off season? Many geezers are golfers or fishermen or both. My pleasure is the outdoor tennis season with my wife. We enjoy daily tennis time whenever the weather permits. A special bonding time after she has been a ski widow from December through March.
Post season is also a time to be attentive to delayed chores, landscaping, mowing and household fix ups. Visits to the Cornell campus and with the students I advise on their curriculum and independent study also takes up some days as well.
Finally, for some geezers it is time to search for new equipment for the next season. Feeling good about helping a friend with skis and bindings selection. Geezer skiers are probably the best experts to help fellow geezer skiers!
