Fiscal Cliff Skiing


Politics and powder skiing don’t mix. It’s not cool to get on a chairlift and go off about your party affiliation or your frustration with our economy and who is to blame. So, with all the chatter about the EFC, economic fiscal cliff, I am going to Canada. No, their economy is not what I seek over ours. I just want to go ski, and enjoy the “joie de vivre” away from the fray.

Le Massif is 100% open having received 100 inches of snow in the past month, Mont Sainte Anne is in excellent snow shape as well. Perhaps I will find a snowy cliff to fly off. Physical cliff skiing anyone? Ok, maybe a baby cliff or just a small jump so I can say I did.


So I will let you know how the snow is in Quebec, eh! And I will investigate the après ski scene too – as due diligence, like a complete congressional report on my EFC- (Emmenthaler fondue cheese?). Wouldn’t you rather ski than hear about debt ceilings, tax hikes and economic downturns? Riding on fresh snow beats any recession discussion any day. See you on the slopes.
