Misty Mountain High

Mountain High
Having seen many people so sozzled they can hardly stand up, before they don skis or snowboard to make the last run home (Think Crazy Kangaruh in St Anton or the Hennu Stall in Zermatt), I was interested to read that the upstanding ski lift operators of Colorado have reminded visitors of the dangers of getting high.

Of course I don’t mean altitude, I mean indulging in something the state has reputedly made legal – but the reality is somewhat short of liberation. Vail, Beaver Creek, Breckenridge and Keystone in Colorado are handing out reminders to their guests that cannabis is still illegal to consume in public and is banned from Federal premises. Ok, unless it’s been purchased as a pet-care thing, according to the post at https://swellcbd.com/product-category/pet-health/.¬† I’m not sure about Mountain High resort in California, but the rule probably applies there too, rather sadly.

Dutch skiers who visit my Dutch language ski site may well visit their local coffeeshop before travelling down to the Alps, and they will be gratified to know that Switzerland is pretty cool about the whole thing. Dope is not legal but the Swiss smoke openly and the police are indifferent as long as you are not behaving badly. Similarly it is fine to walk down the street in Switzerland clutching a beer, or to crack open a bottle of wine on a train on your way to the piste. Not something I recommend you doing in the land of the free.

Plus the skiing and snowboarding is better. Natch!
