As skiers, sometimes it's easy to steer clear of political debates. It doesn't matter side of the fence you're on, if you're a skier, we speak the same language: powder days, first chair, skintracks, face shots, spring corn.
But you can't always just turn your back on the issues facing America right now. And immigration is a big issue right now. So big that the ski resort industry is lobbying hard to keep certain international visas in place to ward off a potential hiring crisis if the Trump Administration eliminates a collection of short-term visas for international visitors.
