There is snow in the air: definitely lots of natural in parts of the West, more like serious making of snow in the East.  Nevertheless, resorts are opening and the season is beginning.  And just in time for the holidays.  That means gifts. Speaking of which we have three sources…

If you are looking for a snow sports oriented holiday gift, head over the the “Ski Influencers” group at Experticity.com.  You can get major discounts from top brands of gear and clothing. If you are not a subscriber, complete our free subscription form in either the pop-up or the right column and you will get instructions on how to sign up with Experticity If you are already a subscriber, you should have registered with Experticity.  If you need instructions on how to do that, email us at [email protected] with “Experticity” in the subject line.

This week, co-publisher Jon Weisberg shares a book idea either for yourself as a gift.  The connection to snow sports is that is makes a great apres-ski read by the fire.  We haven’t seen him so enthusiastic for a book in a while.

Correspondent Harriet Wallis traveled to the New England Ski Museum at the base of Cannon Mountain for a report on its exhibits as well as its unique gift shop.  More interesting ideas for presents with a snow sports twist, so to speak.

Pat McCloskey, a veteran ski instructor and SeniorsSkiing.com correspondent, offers technique tip on balance.  It’s simple and effective.

You might wonder why you should go to a commercial xc center or resort when you can just go across the road to your local park, forest or golf club to ski all day for free.  XCResorts.com publisher Roger Lohr presents the case for visiting a commercial xc center.

Finally, we have a new advertiser, Ski~mojo, a supportive device that is said to take the pressure off knees and hips. Please check our first Sponsored Content article about the Ski~mojo product and let us know what you think.

Please note: We are working on making some of our special subscriber-only assets available on line to our readers.  This is taking a bit of engineering, but soon, perhaps as soon as next week, you’ll be able to access our recommended Skis for Seniors, Free Skiing for Seniors, Sign Up Instructions for Experticity, and our eBook of historic ski posters from the International Ski History Association. 

And remember there really are more of us every day, and we aren’t going away.
