Hoping to teach my 9 year old daughter how to ski this winter. Also I hit the NY boat show and the Philly auto show each January.

Every New Years Day my former ski club near Philly Pa does "ski freeze" on the river so this year I'm going for it.......board shorts only, no wetsuits allowed!

Planning a trip to Key Largo in January, if time allows I'll get in a set of wakeboarding.

The prostar trailer needs a new brake actuator, maybe a new stereo too.

That sounds cool man. I do a polar plung for cancer here in lake Michigan every year. I think they have a ski related polar plunge thing too but not part of it.

Im headed back to dallas on saturday. Maybe pick up a new wake surf board to test if I can ever hitch a ride in texas.

We ski and snowboard during winter pretty actively. Last year's big trip was at "Between Lake Geneva and Mont Blanc, two regions have merged across the Franco-Swiss border to form a single region known as Portes du Soleil. The world's largest international ski area includes 12 charming ski resorts in France and Switzerland, among them Champéry." We stayed in a chalet in Champery along with friends of ours who live in Germany. Being not too far from Lake Tahoe, we spend quite a few weekends skiing at one of the resorts there. I also run our Scout Troop's yearly snow camping outing - nothing like digging a hole in snow and sleeping in it. I't actually pretty comfortable in a properly constructed snow structure. I also love snowshoeing. Honestly, winter is the best time of year to visit Yosemite although I've done a 50 mile backpacking trip (turned into 60 miles) in the northern section a couple summers ago and ran into very few people once we were a few miles in.

In between summer and winter, I scuba dive. Monterey Bay is not too far and has several good diving sites. I was at Pt Lobos about a week ago which is a CA State preserve. Visibility was 100+ ft which is the best conditions I've ever experienced in Nor Cal waters and most likely ever will as it is very rare to have such conditions here.

I'm going to get one last day wakeboarding on the Delta either Friday or Saturday and then I'll call it quits until spring. I'll "winterize" after that. I'll start wakeboarding again right after snow ski/board season - typically early April.

Dec 1-2 I have a backpacking trip planned for Pt Reyes National Seashore.

Short story - I don't have an off season. Just a change of activities.
