Happy 4th of July Weekend!

Post by WildSnow.com blogger | July 3, 2009      

Wishing all of you a terrific weekend. What a holiday, celebrating our freedom and all the opportunity and prosperity our country yields. Like I heard someone say today, out of all the holidays, Fourth of July is the best one. I still like Christmas better, but The 4th is a close second in my book. Have fun everyone and enjoy any backcountry adventures you’ve got planned!

    Hmmm, you’ve got a point, but I still like Christmas…

    Christmas is about as good as it gets. There’s usually enough snow to get some good skiing in, and the ski areas (and roads to them) are abandoned. It’s easy to get in a great day of skiing and be back in time for an early Christmas dinner.

Got something to say? Please do so.
