    As the nation's skiing populace ages, a massive face-lift appears inevitable.

    Baby boomers, long the driving force behind the sport of skiing, may have reached their demographic peak on the slopes. And the diminishing virility of a traditionally robust skiing market has Colorado resorts searching for their own version of the little blue pill.

    "We're talking maybe 5-7 years at this point until the boomers hang up their skis," said David Belin, 40, a lifelong skier from Boulder-based RRC Associates who led the Model for Growth research project for the National Ski Areas Association (NSAA). "The resorts can't wait five years and go, 'Oh, what are we going to do to replace these boomers?

    They were Mostly the Whiney Assholes on the Slopes, so Good Riddance. ;)

    And one More thing, Pick up your Trash on the way out... Don't Leave any of your Depends and Metamucil Debris all over the Parking Lots!

    peace....

    I've given that Concept a LOT of Thought...

    And I'd go with the Television Played a Larger Role...

    Coupled with the Vietnam War and the Draft, I Think the Festering and Agitating that the Young Leftist Journalists did in the Face of the Draft, was the Primary Motivator of what went Wrong with that Generation.

    ^Projection... :clap2:

    I don't Think I have ever seen this Level of Crybabying over a Newspaper Story about the Economic Realities of an Aging and Dying Generation...

    You must be a Boomer... :rofl:

    And of course, just about ANYTHING I say gets you Butthurt and Trolling.

    Considering the Percentage of your Posts that are Trolling, Shitstarting and Whining, maybe you should have Thought Twice before Projecting your way into this one, Sweety.

    Whiney, in Deed. ;)

    :)

    peace...
