Ticket To Ride & Ski this November

Typically November is my least favorite month, its dark, no leaves left on the trees, and daylight savings doesn't really SAVE any daylight - it just takes it away from 4pm and moves it to 6am..whatever.  And then there's the #NoShaveNovember trend... I am all for men's health awareness but not a big fan of facial hair, scraggly beards, macho mustaches, goat t's - not for me! Skin to win is my motto.  Grooming is the new social media. Even the Red Sox knew when to shave off their beards.

The one promising aspect of November is that ski season is coming. November means ski resort openings, Warren Miller movie showings, Ski Shows in major cities (my personal favorite is the Boston Ski Show Nov 14-17)  where ski resort reps give out swag, lift tickets and you get to meet your ski icons like Seth Wescott, Dan & John Egan, Wayne Wong, and US Freestyle, Snowboard and US Ski Team racers on their road to Sochi Russia's Winter Games. Cool!  

This year's Warren Miller movie Ticket to Ride looks like just the ticket to get stoked for ski season with ski celebrities and pro snowboarders like Maine snowboarder Seth Wescott, freeskier Colby West, US Ski Team's Ted Ligety and Julia Mancuso, legendary ski mountaineer Chris Davenport, and the beautiful Gretchen Bleiler. This 64th Warren Miller Entertainment film takes you to exotic ski locales like  Valdez Alaska, Montana’s Big Sky, Switzerland's Eiger in theJungfrau, and the remote mountains of  Kazakhstan, Iceland and Greenland.

For November skiing, make tracks next weekend at Killington, Sunday River and Loon. In the Western Rockies,  you can ski at Loveland, Arapahoe Basin, Copper, and  Keystone. Europe has skiing at Solden Austria, Zermatt and Saas Fee Switzerland and Tignes France.

Instead of NoShaveNovember, how about GoSkiNovember?! See you on the slopes.
