No doubt about it, skiing is a blast. Man vs. mountain, with lots of thrills and exhilaration. I always look forward to it. I don’t even mind the 3 hour drive there. What kills me is the 3 hour drive home. I’m tired. I’m sore. That long in the car afterwards, my muscles just seem to tense up and the 3 hour trip home makes me reconsider even making the trip in the first place.
When I spend the night and ski for two days, the drive makes sense. There are a lot of times though when I’ve got one day free but I don’t have two. With a flying car like the Switchblade, I can greatly expand my skiing fun and cut down my drive time. And if the weather turns bad while I’m skiing, I can always drive home.
