Powell: Daylight saving time makes little sense in ski resort areas
Again, daylight saving time arrived in the midst of ski season. The resorts open at 8:30 a.m. to rock hard slopes since it is really 7:30 “sun” time. Just as the spring snow starts to soften nicely, the resorts close at 4 p.m. when it is really 3 p.m. “sun” time. Wouldn’t it be great if the resorts changed times when daylight saving time starts to 9:30 a.m. to 5 p.m.? We could enjoy the soft spring snow for an hour longer. Who would complain? The workers who get an extra hour of sleep? The guests who can enjoy more evening entertainment not having to rise as early? The Front Rangers who have an extra hour to drive up? We are not going to get the nation to change the date of DST, but I wish that the resorts would consider changing their hours. If you agree, please contact the resort of your choice.
