Just watched this, surprised no comments yet. I  live in W WA and used to stop skiing by Nov & start up again in April. I work  full time so am lucky to get out one or two days on the weekends.  I never felt like I was back in ski shape again until late June/early July.  I joined HT in 2017 and found a great group of skiers that love the challenge of skiing year round. Only thing that keeps us off the lake is ice (Gordon doesn't like what it does to the fiberglass!) I have been able to ski at least one day a month year round since April 2017, ave 2-3/month. Finally broke my streak due to hip replacement this month. For me, the biggest plus of winter skiing is the feel that I never get out of ski shape, so now at 65 yrs old, May-Nov are really great ski months for me. We wear dry suits, have a big cooler of hot water on the docks; everyone has their own preferences for winter gloves, hats, layering. As long as the water is over 45, feet & hands tolerate it ok.  Have also found by staying with it all year, it's much easier to stay acclimated to the cold. Will be interesting to see what kind of ski shape I am in in when I am released to ski again in June.
