180. Skiing at Christmas © Hélène Levasseur


Every skier is full of tremendous glee
The mountains are snow covered
The aid sportsmen are exhilarated
Preparing for their shopping spree

It’s Christmas and they have a list
New skiing equipment is mandatory
Must keep up with the Jones’ Theory
Thanks mom for being such a loyalist

Whistler and Blackcomb are perfect
What a wonderful season for an episode
Of endearing friends scheduled for a social setup
Amongst devoted skiers on sites made for the elect

It’s good to know this sport is not just for the rich
Thank God that cross country skiing exists for us
People sharing their snowy land for realists
Great health and wealth to us does enrich
