I love this tidbit from Heather Burke - at this time last year, there were fewer than a dozen ski areas still open for the season.
That is indeed not the case this year, with dozens of mountains still spinning the lifts after yet another bounty of snow last week. So, as long as we're still skiing, we'll keep talking skiing.
