The first day of Summer brings all sorts of feelings to people around North America. The seamingly endless days on the lakes and rivers, the warm evenings, the alluring aroma of the BBQ, and of course, the hope that Winter once again will return. Yes my friends, the days are getting shorter. Ski mags will hit the shelves shortly. The barrage of ski flick trailers will be upon us. It will not be long before you tire of the BBQ smell and yearn for the wafting scent of ski wax to dance around in your nose holes. Do not despair my fellow skiers, this purgatory we call summer will soon be over. We shall be knee deep in Winter in no time.
