Dude, I'm shattered...that's not YOU..?
Living in Atlanta...it's difficult to find decent skiing conditions, yes, ice abounds at times...but that's not a great choice for a 63- year old guy.
Last trip I took...North Carolina...the semi-snow (man made stuff) was good BUT that brought out half the populations of NC, SC, TN and GA...very crowded, dangerous...
Seeing friends in Switzerland the year before in January, was nice...as temps were 75 Degrees F...in Luzern...we tried skiing one day...my girls immediately falling getting off the gondola...Ohio icy conditions even at 12,000 FASL...despite my experience, skiing carefully, caught my trademark downhill edge and "flew over the handlebars"- glad we rented helmets. So we stayed in town, played tennis...ate fondue...came home tanned. Nuts.
We did Maui 2 years ago...drove every square foot of it...diverse landscape...very cool. Big Island someday hopefully.
Happy New Year and Best of Health to you.
