The waiting is the hardest part
Posted on: March 1, 2013
You've got some shiny new equipment. You're in great ski shape after a full season of ripping at your local hill. You've booked your vacation, and now you're ready for the trip of a lifetime.
Next comes the hardest part... The waiting!

What do you do to pass the time? Do you occupy yourself by tuning your skis? Do you compulsively check the weather forecasts and snow reports? Do you get sucked into a vortex of ski videos on YouTube? Do you dream about the powder and how deep it's going to be? Do you go shopping for a snorkel just in case it's deep enough to need one? Do you do whatever it takes to fill the void until your next ski trip?
An interesting way to pass the time until your next powder fix...
We feel your pain. When your trip is right around the corner, time has a habit of moving at the speed of a glacier. But not to worry, you'll be there soon, and with every passing minute, there's a chance that more snow will fall!
