Seems early in some ways to start this thread before July is out, but is it really too early to start thinking and planning for this upcoming season? I've been getting so many ski related emails in my box lately too. Skis.com has been running their Christmas in July specials. This week my local ski shop, Country Ski and Sports, opened up again with new stock. Ken Jones in Manchester, NH opens again on August 12. I was filling in dates and info on my new calendar, and looked up the dates for the Boston Ski Expo so I could put those on too. It will be from Nov 14- 17 this year. Wachusett sent out an email about prices going up soon, but I'm pretty sure that you can still get these early season prices at the ski show. At least you could last year. Nothing like dreaming of skiing to get you through the dog days of summer!
