It's September. Summer is all but over, and Fall hasn't started the cool down. I have started my season workout cycle of lunges, burpees, Russian squats, box jumps, etc. I have my gear. I have not skied.
Instead I am passing my time working, reading farmer's almanacs, reading ski magazines, watching ski videos, and dreaming of that first turn. That first turn in fresh powder. That first spray of champagne powder. That is what I dream of.
For now it's back to work. First stop of the season is Boston Ski Expo. Until then, keep dreaming.
