My complete skiing CV consists of a trip to Falls Creek in high school, a couple of weekends at Perisher in my 20s and some gentle cross-country in Canada a few years ago. Still, when asked to check out the ski scene at Vail and Breckenridge, Colorado, I say, “I’ll be there, with sleigh bells on.” I am 52 years old. Crazy, or what?
