    and bluster‚ prodded by the restless wind. Ski resorts don’t like to talk about wind–or storms in general—because it scares away the tourists‚ who somehow forget that winter is messy‚ cold‚ and wild‚ as if snow were laid down softly each night like a blanket over a sleeping baby. But wind is a fact of life in the mountains‚ as much a part of the weather as snow itself‚ and those who grumble about it or say it does nothing but blow overlook the fact that the wind gives as much as it takes.
