This year has seen record low snowfall in the Northeast US, a huge change from last year’s numbers. Although in some cases a decent amount of snow is actually falling on hills and mountains, the lack of it in valley and metropolitan areas dissuades people from actually going skiing. Temperatures have been relatively warm as well so far.
This uncommonly dry, warm weather has sent people reaching for their golf clubs instead of their skis. Country Clubs across the US have remained open through the winter and have been reporting increased business activity because of this unseasonal weather. Take it as a tip if you’re in the area, this might be a good time to work on that handicap and surprise your golf buddies come spring.
