Skiing..exactly at the time when half-the-world is heading to Miami to escape the snow?
That’s my kind of mountain. As I find I cannot tolerate altitude I spend more time searching fro 3 foot mountains.
My aunt and uncle used to have a home in Lake Wales (just 45 minutes or so south of Orlando) – home of Florida’s highest point – 800′ or so. With the Bock Tower.
Reminds me of a bumper sticker I saw many years ago:
yellow background, a flat line across the bottom, a wilted sunflower, and SKI KANSAS!
Makes my ears pop.
I lived in Lake Charles, Louisiana, for several years. My house was located on what I was told was a “ridge”, that was 11 feet above sea level. My friends here in Colorado always smile at that, as the community where I live now ranges from about 7000 feet to about 9000 feet above sea level.
Did you climb that hill on your bicycle without stopping? If so, congratulations!
On his skis, Dan. Double congratulations.
@George – X Country skying would work!
I expect they have a runaway truck ramp on either side.
