I don’t live in Boone.
But I ski here.
I’ve skied there, too.
And I know what it’s like.
Boone County, in southern New Jersey, has a reputation as a place where you can ski, but it’s also a place with some serious skier problems.
There are skiers who don’t want to go out in the winter because they fear it will hurt their legs, or they’re afraid of snow on their back, or the snow on the ground might fall.
Boone has seen its share of snow storms, and the county is also home to the state’s only ski resort, the Big Stone Gap, which closed its doors in the late ’90s and recently reopened to the public.
In the winter months, Boone ski resorts are packed with thousands of people.
It’s not unusual for the crowds to spill out onto the sidewalks of the county’s ski trails, but in recent years, the resort’s popularity has waned.
I went there recently, and while it wasn’t exactly a full-blown winter resort, there were a few spots where the snow was really, really bad.
It felt like we were stuck in a snowstorm, or we were being watched, or there was some kind of ice, and there were also people who were really aggressive in their skiing, and it felt like a real dangerous situation.
The biggest problem, according to John Schmitt, a ski instructor and ski bum from New Jersey who has been a part of Boone County’s ski community for decades, is the snow.
Boone is one of the states’ worst ski counties for skiing.
The winters are often icy, but the weather doesn’t really cooperate with the ski resorts, making skiing less of a challenge.
Boone’s snow is especially bad during the spring and summer, when temperatures drop, but there’s little snowfall to help keep the resort busy.
“I’ve never had a winter like this,” Schmitt told me when we met.
“We have no snow on our ski courses.
There’s no snow at the ski parks.
We’ve had snowstorms on our roads, but they were usually only in the daytime.”
When it snowed in January, for example, I was skiing in a field of frozen snow on a hillside in a ski area where I had been invited by a friend to take photos of it.
There were a lot of people there.
But in the summer months, the weather is often better, but not much snow is left.
“Snow in this area is not really bad,” Schampt said.
“In the winter it’s pretty good.
But we don’t have any snow on any of our ski fields.
You can ski here and it’ll be good.
And then you’ve got to get out in there, get on the slopes, and get some ice on your back and your legs.
That snow is bad.”
Schmitt said that in some places the snow is even worse than in other parts of the state.
The winter months of 2015 and 2016, for instance, were brutal, and even though the snow fell in the early morning hours, Schmitt was still having to contend with snow conditions that made it difficult for him to get on his ski trails.
“You could barely see the ski area.
And it was so dry out there, and so cold.
I couldn’t get in the snow, and I could hardly get up on the hills,” he said.
Schmitt says that he’s heard from people who have been injured skiing in the county and that he hears from people as far away as Montana who have suffered serious injuries because of the conditions.
“There’s a lot more bad skiing here than there is good skiing, which is not good,” he told me.
But the worst part of winter in Boone is not the snow or the bad weather, it’s the people.
There aren’t many opportunities to ski in Boone, but ski resorts do still exist.
There is a winter resort called The Mountain Resort, which opened in 1997, but after about 20 years, it closed in 2014.
Schampts brother, Mark, is a ski resort owner who owns the Big Tree Ski Resort and a large resort called Big Stone Mountain Resort.
Mark Schamptt says that if he were to visit Boone again in the fall, he would stay away from the winter resort.
“It’s a little bit too much of a problem for me,” he says.
“The problem with winter is that there’s so much snow, there’s too much snow on top of the ski areas.
It really doesn’t work.”
But Schmitt isn’t the only one who believes that Boone’s ski resorts should be closed in the spring.
“They’re in a bad situation,” he tells me.
“What you’re talking about with the snow isn’t a problem.
I don, as a matter of fact, have people in my area who go out,
