Non-Snow Activities: Senior Divin’

Something Else That’s Cool For Seniors. Are you ever too old to dive? What concessions might you make? I’ve been diving since I was in college, back in the 60s. On the concession front, these days I am happy to cavern dive. My days of dragging reels and half a dozen lights into the bowels of a cave are behind[Read More…]

Isn’t It Time For You To Go Home? We’ve all hosted house parties where one or more guests have decided to hang around long after everyone else has gone.

Non-Snow Activities: Dude Ranchin’

From Yodeling To Yippee-ing, Yvette Rides The Range.  I’m not sure if skiing gets you into shape for horseback riding or vice versa, but, yes, a lot of the same muscles are at play.  Either way, both take strong legs. I confirmed all of this at White Stallion Ranch just outside Tucson, AZ at the end of last ski season. [Read More…]

SeniorsSkiing Guide: Silver Star Update

SeniorsSkiing Guide: Silver Star Update

I hadn’t been to Silver Star Mountain in probably two decades. I remembered a mellow, family resort with an Old West theme and very easy runs. Boy, has Silver Star in British Columbia, Canada’s interior grown up. Yes, the main street still has a bit of Old West, 1900s mining town vibe. But that’s where the original Silver Star ends.[Read More…]

How BC Resorts Show Love For Senior Skiers

Big White, Sun Peaks, Silver Star Create Programs For Seniors. Ok, one thing most senior skiers—those folks in their 60s, 70s, 80s and even beyond— do a lot is ski.

Dog-Sledding Is Another Snow Activity: Don’t Say Mush!

Other Things To Do In Winter For Seniors (Part 2): On You Huskies. Ok, nobody says mush. Nobody, outside of maybe movies, has EVER said mush, though the folks who drive sleds are often called mushers.
