Yesterday I was in Ellicottville, aka the Aspen of the East, home of our local ski resort, Holiday Valley.
And standing proudly outside the Post Office was this..
Yep, a tree made of skis.
Something tells me that this phenomenon might not be all that uncommon in the ski-ing world but it's the first Christmas Ski Tree I've seen.
It got me ruminating that if the global warning doom-mongers are right, there will be a lot more things made out of redundant skis in the future.Perhaps they can grind them down to make artificial snow.
Still, I wish Holiday Valley a successful season along with my friends in the gallant Wednesday Ski Group. I had many happy times there, though, sadly, I now spend the winter in Flat Florida and I will miss them.
