While some of us head to warmer climates this time of year, others can’t wait to get out on the mountain- or along the trails- to take advantage of winter ski conditions. Ron Chase, for example, is a Maine-based outdoor enthusiast whose blog, Seniors Not Acting Their Age, recently extolled the tremendous exercise virtues of cross-country skiing in a post titled “Cross Country Skiing Is For Old People.” For those of you who may be more “traditionalists” on skis, you need to know about SeniorsSkiing.com, an online resource for the over-50 skier. Check out this New York Times interview with the site’s co-founder, Jon Weisberg, Here. So, whether it’s downhill or across fields, skiing, even for the novice, can be a tremendous source of aerobic exercise and pleasure for seniors. Happy Trails!
