Daylight Saving Time… Regular Time… Which is better?
Would skiing and riding be better off if we stayed on Daylight Saving Time? If we stayed on it, could ski resorts open from 9 am to 5 pm every day? Maybe.
In Argentina, they don’t have Daylight Saving Time, and many ski resorts do open from 9 am to 4:30 or 5 pm. That extra hour of skiing and riding is huge.
Would a system like this work in the USA? Maybe. The only problem is that hand charges for avalanche control can’t be thrown until there’s “visibility” in the USA. In Argentina, the sun doesn’t come up until after 9 am in the dead of winter. That would make for some late openings on powder days in the US.
Love it or hate it, Daylight Saving Time started again yesterday and I missed that hour in bed…
