With the 2012 Presidential Election finally behind us, it’s time for our nation to look towards the future. One thing is for certain; there is still a lot of work left to do if we want to get our beloved America back to kick-ass status. President Barack Obama is going to be one busy guy, with a great deal resting on his shoulders. Mitt Romney on the other hand has plenty of time on his hands, and the means to pursue any career or recreational activity he desires.

After such a tough campaign, Mitt deserves a some good old fashion R&R. Running in a presidential race is a grueling experience, and losing one must take an unimaginable toll on one’s psyche — especially after coming so close to securing a seat in the oval office. In the midst of wrapping up his post-campaign operations, the New York Times reports that Romney told close friend, Fraser Bullock, that he was planning on traveling to Utah for some winter skiing. Now that’s a policy decision we whole-heartedly endorse!

While we’re not sure which mountains are on the agenda for this season, the Romney family will have a ton of great ski resort options to choose from. The state of Utah is populated by some of the best mountain resorts in the country, most of which are located less than an hour away from the SLC Airport. There’s Alta Ski Resort, Brighton Ski Resort, Snowbird, Solitude, Canyons, Deer Valley Resort, Park City Mountain Resort, Sundance, Beaver Mountain, Powder Mountain, Snowbasin, Wolf Mountain, Eagle Point and Brian Head. On average, Utah receives over 500 inches of snowfall a year, which typically exhibits a low water density resulting in dry snow. Utah’s calls it “the greatest snow on Earth”, and to be perfectly honest, after taking a few turns, you’ll be sold on its greatness! If there ever was a “Powder Debate”, you could count on Utah be prepared with some epic zingers.

Mitt Romney’s life has been consumed with campaigning for the better part of the past decade. With the election concluded, Mitt is free to take a step back from the spectacle of party politics, and catch his breath. There’s no better place to sort out your feelings, and reconnect with the important things in life than atop a beautiful snow covered mountain. Happy skiing Mr. Romney!
