It's all about winter tourism, years ago the ski lodges and and their lobby argued for a mid-winter holiday to help support the winter destinations. They saw the profits beach resorts got from Spring Break and wanted a piece of the action.
My son is enjoying his first day off of "ski week", a concept that both troubles and confuses me a bit, especially considering his spring break is only five weeks away.
