    Am I dense? I don’t get what skiing has to do with “matrimony”.

    ps. if it were me writing it, I’d do something like:

    Q: A state upbeat skiers avoid.
    A. Depression

    It’s often referred to as *the state of matrimony*, ron. You know, as in *marital status*. — YUR

    ps. It’s rumored that the writers sometimes read this board. Maybe they’ll take a cue from you, ron. — YUR

    I second Ron; the “skiers” bit through me off, and it has nothing to do with the answer. I was thinking about bastardizations of “Maryland” (ie, Marryland)…

    The key word in the clue was *bachelor*, JW. Their activity/profession/sport was semi-irrelevant, accepting that snow skiers would avoid the state of Florida (the map) like a confirmed bachelor would avoid the state of matrimony.
