Guess what Midwest folks, Northern Californians are taking a whole extra week of holidays. They call it Ski Week.
Maybe it's stupidly simple, but it is just what is sounds like--a week off to go skiing. Michigan? Are you having Ski Week? Ohio? Let me know, because I did not grow up with this holiday, and every time it comes around, I feel disbelief that there is a whole week off of school devoted to skiing.
Maybe this holiday was created to boost Tahoe tourism? I don't know, but I can tell you, most people I know are headed to the slopes in search of fresh powder.
Anyone out there know how Ski Week became a holiday?
