Winter is all but here and that means everybody everywhere is going through their preseason checklist. Do I have my season pass? Is the workout routine ramped up? Where is my outerwear? What is that smell? Why is that smell coming from my outerwear?
But for a ski writer, it's little more than that. Bookending Thanksgiving are the pivotal few weeks where we decide what we're doing with our lives (okay, maybe just our winter, but still), presenting our finest ski ideas to our favorite publications and hoping that they think we're as cool as we think we are. Pitch season. It's a fun dance, but a time consuming one, so I'm thankful to have still gotten some writing done this month. I even made my debut in a new (to me) print publication, Coast Mountain Culture, which, if you haven't checked it out, is just about as close to art as you can get in the magazine world.
Thanks for checking it out guys. Now, let's get ready for the Niño.
