We looked over the initial results from Subscriber Survey 2016 and realized we wanted to respond immediately to some of the questions you raised. You will find a capsule summary of responses to your questions in We Hear You.  Please note that we do have a FORUM, and it can be a useful tool if you want to connect to other senior skiers.  Look at the topmost dark blue menu bar, second menu pick in from the right, just to the left of ABOUT.  Seems as if it’s been a best kept secret all this time.  More results will be coming soon.

Curiously, one of the themes you mentioned in your survey advice was to help ski resorts and senior skiers form groups like the Over The Hill Gang that started in Copper Mountain, CO in 1976. This week, we present a profile of OHG and how it works. Can you get a gang like this together where you ski?

Our friend and skiing colleague, The Ski Diva, wrote a useful set of tips on keeping your feet warm. You know what cold feet can do to your day. Thanks to The Ski Diva for letting us reprint her advice.’s ace correspondent Harriet Wallis shows us the “Skiers’ Paradise”,—Alta— in all its glory.  Alta has much to offer senior skiers, and, in this resort review, Harriet shows us some of its treasures.

And, for those who always wanted to ski Montana but found the getting there part a bit of a chore, there is news inside about a new airline route. You can get a more direct flight into Bozeman, opening up your way to Big Sky.


Next week, we’ll be posting more data from the Subscriber Survey, a resort review of the venerable Cranmore Mountain, North Conway, NH, a profile of our favorite Nordic site in Massachusetts, more product reviews, and whatever else comes over the transom.

Meanwhile, do two things:

1) Check our FORUM. That’s where you can link up with other kindred spirits.

2) And, tell your friends about
