24: Winter Sports

Happy Thanksgiving! Sorry it took us forever and a day (if “forever” was just short of a week) to get this one online, but it’s a busy time for us and we imagine all of you, too. Anyway, on this episode, we deferred to our resident expert on Snowboarding, Skiing, and things that involve snow and certain human injury, Bret, for a lively chat about the encroaching late-Fall and Winter seasons, and what those of us who are planning to strap our feet into clamp-boots, attach them to planks, and accelerate down icy slopes should know and expect!
Don’t think this doesn’t include you, no matter where you live. Granted, our focus from last week, Florida, isn’t exactly a winter sports haven (unless the Lightning or Panthers weren’t actually in a contract dispute), but even, say, our Moroccan friends have plenty of ski slopes in the Atlas Mountain range. Californians always have Lake Tahoe, Mammoth, and a handful of other places to perform those moves you practiced on 1080 Snowboarding for the N64 back in the day. The cool thing about Bret’s experience is that, despite growing up in Southern California, he’s been snowboarding for most of his life. Tyler grew up in New England, but prefers ice skating and hockey over anything involving slopes, mostly due to a bad injury he once sustained, and also because he’s kind of a wuss.

Anyway, grab some hot cocoa, pull up a chair next to the fire, and hope you enjoy!
