Mt. Bachelor season passes went on sale September 1. It is hard to believe that ski season is so close. I am not a skier but I have a lot of clients that are. This year I am spending some time getting myself into better physical shape than I have been in the past. Who knows maybe next year I will take a lesson or two.

If you are an avid skier you will find that Joanne Hanson of Summit County Colorado’s post about skiing in Colorado interesting here is a little about what she had to say about their upcoming ski season.
“It is time to buy season passes to Breckenridge, Keystone, Copper Mountain and Arapahoe Basin. It is also a time when we anxiously await the equipment reviews in Ski magazine, the ski swap announcements, the Labor Day tent sales and Sports Authority’s Sniagrab sale. We watch the weather forecast closely, hoping that it will get cold enough to snow, and every morning we check the peaks for traces of white stuff.”
