yup – the mountain markets to the younger snowboarder/free rider set. Not much there for mid-lifers or families with younger kids. oh well. I like the idea of “just zigging when everyone else is zagging” – well said!

Dingo is right Ken, if you’re in bed before 8:30 AM or noon you MUST be old!

Ken – I’m in bed before half those events even start.

It’s pretty easy to avoid the rest of that razzle dazzle by just zigging when everyone else is zagging.

I feel really old — all that razzle-dazzle is completely unappealing and distasteful to me.
