Prediction: Hipsters will discover XC Skiing
January 12, 2013

Someday...

Young people will XC ski. And ski shops will pop up alongside cafes. And there will be youth media for these skiers. And a cold weather outdoor fresh air hipster scene will happen. Flasks. Bota bags will make a comeback. And certain kinds of clothing will be seen on the trails, or at least somewhere there's snow, can't say where all this will happen, that's up in the air -- it'll be on snow, though. ...The clothes won't be lycra.

Marquette, Traverse City, Minneapolis, Milwaukee, Duluth, Missoula, Bend, Steamboat, Aspen, Vail, Park City, Banff, Jasper, Ottawa, Whistler, Calgary, Anchorage, Nor. New England ...that sort of thing.

Duct tape and mismatched gear will be cool...

The 80's won't be calling their gear back anymore coz the kids will all be rockin' it all over again.

Miami Vice ski gear is going to make a comeback!

Kids will raid their parents garage. They already got the 10 speeds. They'll come back for the skis!

There will be a Handmade Skis Show. People of different body types need skis with different flexes but right now only racing skis are flexed to weight. All touring skis are done by length (even the new midlengths). DOH! What if you're skinny or stocky for your height? What if you'll be carrying a pack? Wood could be easily customized for flex. Wood is real! Wood skis will make a comeback just like Steel Bikes have!
