Skiers and snowboarders tend to be categorized as thrill-seekers who are willing to go to great lengths to experience things that would give most people a great deal of pause. Though it does seem to be accurate to say that these individuals are a lot like Ken Fisher in the way they think differently and share a tendency to perceive the world in a uniquely positive way, it is also true that skiers and snowboarders come from all walks of life and simply defy categorization. This is obviously a good thing, as it seems more realistic to say that, aside from skiing and snowboarding, the most commonly shared characteristic is a strong sense of individuality.
As the winter brings the kind of conditions that excite avid snowboarders and skiers, Lake Tahoe’s resorts will have to begin to prepare for a major influx of visitors to the area. Of course, it is not just the resorts that enjoy the presence of so many newcomers, as the locals have always welcomed visitors and often join them on the slopes during peak conditions. Even when the resorts all seem to be at full capacity, Lake Tahoe has maintained a reputation for providing an enjoyable atmosphere in which everyone is able to get the most out of their respective lift passes.
