A sign of a good winter is less talking about skiing and more powder shredding. Well, that's the excuse I'm using for not blogging since December... Nonetheless, below are two stories I wrote that were published this winter in The Ski Journal. Issue 7.3 highlights the history of Vermont's Smuggler's Notch Road - relating the clandestine tradtions of bootlegging and tree cutting for powder stashes, and in 7.4 I sit down with pro-skier Ian Compton. Both issues are available at books stores and newsstands.
