I've definitely been getting that feeling as I've been exploring the state and running into skiers at BC areas as well as on some peaks/trails. Many seem to live in Aspen and other ski resort towns. Out there skiing it, instead of talking about it!

No time to talk about it when you're out skiing every day

^^^this...when you live in the mountains or right next to the mountains it's pretty easy to just ski/bike/climb/run/kayak, ect after work/before work. We eat/sleep and breath mountain sports everyday here, so naturally it's a lifestyle and 99% of it is never blogged about. No commute necessary.

Do you guys realize how ridiculous this sounds??? "I'm too cool to post about skiing", posts the cool guy, referring to skiing.

Very cool. No doubt they'll finish this season assuming at least an average snow year.
