But winter sports are a little harder. The skiing surrounding Orange and San Diego Counties is, well, wanting a little bit: wanting for acreage, terrain, and snow. Of course, Mammoth and June Mountains are only 6-8 hours away, but seriously - if you had only 2 days off and a minimum wage job, would you:
- participate in a year round sport with a one-time investment in gear like surfing or bouldering, or;
- buy a season pass annually at an over-priced ski area, or;
- buy lots of gear for to climb frozen water at a few published locations in California when the conditions are just right.
It was a great two days, and I'll show photos of them to you once I find the cable to my camera, lost somewhere in the backseat of the Subaru. Until then - Cheers!
