Lately I have noticed that instead of highlighting a downhill skier, cross-country skier or other outdoor enthusiast in your Outdoor section "Outsiders" column you have concentrated on average people with little skill to share. Isn't this column supposed to inspire us to get out there and enjoy all the snow? How about an Olympic skiing contender or an ace snowboarder or an avid cross country skier? I loved your GPS article today and always enjoy this section. Please put a little more effort into this column for all the young people who might read it and all the couch potatoes who need a little encouragement.
