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.

In 1816, incessant cold through the year drove New Englanders to despair.

This Week In SeniorsSkiing.com (May 31)

Still Spinning, Still Snowing. Still Going? In 1816, there was no summer in New England.
