Vacation is Hard Work

I understand why some people do not like winter sports, there is a lot of work involved... from the point you put your boots on, till the time you make it down the hill at the end of the day. On the other hand, anything that is worth achieving requires hard work. Skiing is the embodiment of said feeling. The moments you reflect on for the rest of your life are not the casual groomed days with clear skies… they are the days you fight the elements to find the perfect snow conditions or the ideal run.
