on 

up here at starry pines mountain resort and ski lodge, the winter sports are like nothing you’ve ever seen

first of all, trees can’t grow here because the low gravity messes up the nitrogen uptake cycle in their roots. the snow never gets packed firm — it just kind of hovers at knee height, what little of it has enough of an earthward vector to actually arrive on the ground.

also, this february, bring a friend and get half-off your lift ticket! yow! what a saver
