Many people are amazed to know that my eighty five year old grandmother still takes ski trips every season. She loves skiing and takes all her grandchildren with her down the mountain. Many of my acquaintances are amazed, but the truth is, skiing is a sport that allows for various types of skiers to enjoy the slops.
Older members of the skiing community may chose resorts that cater to senior citizens. These resorts may have wider trails and more comfortable ski lifts. But most ski resorts are built to accommodate a wide variety of skiers. As long as a skier is aware of the risks and his or her limitations, there is no age limit to enjoying the sport of skiing!
