I have to admit, I’m very excited this morning.
As you may already know, I’m the administrator for TheSkiDiva.com, an internet discussion forum for women skiers I launched back in September. And I have to say, it’s been a blast. If you haven’t already been there, make it a point to go. We talk about everything ski related (and then some): gear, technique, mountains, fitness, and more. And the discussions are all first rate. I’m constantly amazed by the knowledge, spirit, and character displayed in each and every post.
Anyway, today I’m finally going to get a chance to meet some of the wonderful women who participate at the site. Eight of us (including me) will be at Stowe, most for a weekend ski clinic sponsored by the Epic Ski Academy, and we’ll finally have a chance to ski together. And even though the conditions here in the east have been less than stellar (make that crappy), I know it’s going to be fun, fun, fun!!!
One of the great things about the internet is how it allows us to connect with one another in a way that was never before possible. Not only has it helped me make some wonderful friends who share my passion for skiing, but it’s let me “talk” with women skiers from all over the US — in fact, from all over the world. And though it’s nice to communicate with them daily over the internet, nothing replaces meeting someone face to face. And that’s what makes today so very special.
Gotta go now. My Divas await!
