You've sat pining for hours staring down the door of your closed gear closet. You can count the areas of flaking paint and scratches on the door knob. There are days you've been productive — tuning your skis for next season and taking advantage of those summer deals by buying new poles and replacing your tattered ski gloves — but they've been few and far between. The sunshine and warm temperatures aren't helping melt away your slope separation anxiety. Ask any skier or snowboarder — the pain is real. The mountains are calling your name, so occasionally you go — but the sight of so much green makes you sick to your stomach. A landscape bereft of snow is a depressing reminder of fresh powder. However, you don't have to wallow in your summer woes. There are plenty of things to do to keep yourself occupied — and even better, prepared for next season.
