For Die-Hards, Here’s How To Keep Going.

Signs that the season is ending are starting to sprout along with the crocuses.  In the East, many areas will be closing this weekend; there’s still lots of snow on the ground, but many lift lines are nearly empty even on the weekend.  Many skiers have had enough.  Out West, conditions have been marginal to miserable all season. There’s plenty of cross-country skiing though, even in urban areas in New England, and we’ve been out in the sunshine several times in the last week.

But, can you beat this video from the British Nordic Ski Team, circa 1957, picturing Dutch ski enthusiasts roller-skiing along?  It is possible that for some the season never ends.
