Perseid Meteor Shower Now at Your Local Ski Resort

The Perseid meteor shower is expected to bring an incredible show to tonights sky with meteors showing themselves at rates up to 150 an hour. For the best viewing you need to be in a dark place with little ambient light from the ground so we racked our brains and then realized that a ski resort would be the perfect spot.  Many resorts even have moonlight chair lift rides for the romantic and/or astronomy inclined.  So get to the mountains and catch the best show not on earth.
