High season in ski country everywhere.  Seems everyone, everwhere has enough snow to last well into Springtime. Glory. What a difference a year makes. Thanks, La Nina or El Nino. Whatever.

We have a group of interesting articles this week.  In the next installment on his DIY series, Mike Stebbins advises us to keep our eyes in our turn, spotting your moves with your mind as you let your legs and feet do their thing.  Interesting notion worth trying.

We also have a video clip of a chap who has managed to take off and put on one ski while skiing along.  It has to be seen to be appreciated.  Fact: If you want to do this, you are going to need to practice for about 100 years.  Good luck.

We profile a ski industry builder in our SnowSports Leaders series.  Dave Scott is a long-time industry veteran who was recently inducted into the Colorado Ski and Snowboard Hall of Fame.

Roger Lohr, publisher of XCSkiResorts.com, reminds us that there are resorts where cross-country skiers can get a lift uphill for a ride down, hitching onto gravity.  He says this may becoming a trend in some areas.

Outdoorsman Steve Hines reports on his stay in the Goldilocks Cottage, Stowe, VT.  No bears, however.  It looks like the ultimate cozy spot for a get-a-way weekend or week.  In this secluded cabin, you can really unplug in more ways than one.

Finally, John Nelson brings us a profile of Schweitzer Mountain Resort in northern Idaho.  John has a knack for finding these under-the-radar resorts that offer so much for seniors.

Reminder:  If you have a video you’d like to share, send us a link or post it on our Facebook page. We will publish it on our online magazine for all to see.

And be on the look out for our Spring Survey 2017. Coming up soon.  We will be asking different questions that help us understand you, our wonderful readers.

Also, don’t forget to tell your friends about SeniorsSkiing.com. That’s how we grow.  And there are more of us everyday, and we aren’t going away.
