What are your winter plans?

My I am currently suffering from motivational issues but the plan is …
  • Ski as much as is practical / at least once a week or 4 sets a month.
  • Stay at an easy pass most of the time and work on technical things I wish to improve
  • Not get fat / should try to be thinner

    Ski of course, silly question :D
    Although living in the great white north it will be on white fluffy stuff but hey, it is still skiing.
    Hopefully Europe and Canada let us in, the Alps and Powder Highway are calling.

    Doing my best to keep my PNW consecutive monthly skiing alive. Have skied every month since March 2017. Blame it on global warming?

    During the day instead of working I will be clicking relentlessly on my ski favorites hoping someone says something interesting about skiing, checking shipping status of equipment I have ordered even though I have everything I could ever need, and checking the weather conditions at my ski sites for the first signs of spring. At night I will prepare by visualizing passes before I dream about them.

    Is it time to ski, yet?

    Build a home, barn / shop, acquire more Longhorn's and ski a little, both kinds.
    Also to not put on the "winter coat" @Horton 3rd bullet point.

    Not my plan but over the winter my body will forget most of what I taught it this year. Hopefully the weather will allow a few sets a month to reduce what my body forgets. I will get in better shape to start next season focusing mostly on core strength.

    Work out to loose beer gut and prep for Steamboat ski trip. Drink lots of beer to prep for ski trip and dull pain from workouts

    I need to figure out what the general consensus is out here on the river for putting in a course. A bit tricky with 3 parties involved - the non-indigenous cottagers, indigenous land owners, and Hydro One (who have rights to the river/flood zone). If I get the go ahead, have to choose, purchase, and figure out when to set up said course. If no course is going to happen in my water, I need to find the nearest course and become friends with those who have a boat on the water there! So in short, my winter plans are to figure out how to ski the course more without paying every time at Bush's in Bala.

    A couple weeks in the Rockies.
    And, no more Covid excuse for not being in the gym.

    Ski at least 3x weekly. Ride my horses when not skiing. Enjoy the fact I don't have to mow grass every single day.

    Very interested in this program.

    I tried signing up for the 14 day free trial but it appeared the only way was to commit to the yearly subscription with my credit card then cancel later.

    Do you have an email address?

    Thank you.

    @scoke if you want, you can email us at [email protected] :)

    for the 14 day free trial, you do have to put in your payment info but will not be charged unless you surpass your 14 days. if you decide before you 14 days are up that you're not into it, just go in and cancel your payment and nothing will go through. if you do like it and want to go through with it, your payments will automatically come out.

    shoot us an email anytime. :)

    Buy the lot on the ski lake. Sell the house. Build on the lot. Simple plan, not likely that 1 winter gets it done
