Any Floridians?

Hi from Ft Lauderdale. Went to the big Peter Glenn ski show last week and now I'm ready for some snow.

It's a drag living in this hot weather all of the time. Skiing and snow is such a luxury for me! What kills me is when I fly to CO or UT is getting used to the elevation from sea level. It takes me one whole day to get used to it before I can ski. I'm so thirsty, dry and headachey. It's so humid here that we chap stick is unheard of around here.

Two more months to go!

Hey FLGIRL, Welcome!

You'll find plenty of reasons to catch that flight to the winter states.



Flying tip that helps adjust to drier climates: drink a couple of bottles of water during the flight and another once you land, it seems to help us anyway.

Where are you skiing this year? I'm going to Beaver Creek. How do you get used to the altitude change from sea level here? We have quite an adjustment!
