With fall surfing and biking trips complete, now comes the patient wait for skiing. We’ve winter temperatures here in Rossland, but just a dusting of snow on the ground. Red’s making snow, with enough stockpiled to put a few turns together if one were desperate. I’m still getting out my bike, but not having embraced the fat-bike craze, every ride could be my last. Skis are tuned. Pass is in hand. Storms are coming.
