As election day, Tuesday Nov 2nd, approaches we rather be thinking about waxing our skis or watching the latest film premier, but local elections can have some of the most immediate and lasting effects on the day-to-day lives of skiers. CY Whitling explores how the outcomes of these elections will impact where you live, where you work, how you get to the ski hill, where that ski hill builds lifts, how educated the kids at that ski hill are, how the roads to and from that hill are maintained and policed, and what you can do after a day of skiing.
