Skiing Is Where You Find It

Not every ski trip is to a big mountain.

Turns are turns and a day skiing is better than a day sitting on the couch. Thanks to Will for the fun video of a great day skiing in London's Richmond Park.

The Party's Over?

When is the ski season over? Is it when the lifts at the local ski area stop running? Do you travel farther and farther to find an open ski area? Or, do you chase winter across the globe so the ski season never ends? I haven't crossed the equator to ski yet, but I have climbed a mountain for some 'post-ski-season' turns.

Ski the Backcountry vs. Riding Lifts

'There ain't no such thing as a free lunch.' That saying applies to skiing and snowboarding as well as time-share condo seminars. Peter Frick-Wright discovered as much in his attempt to reduce his carbon footprint (snowprint?) by snowboarding in the backcountry. Peter rode a train to 'see whether I can ride the rails to a near-zero-emissions vacation'. Unfortunately, Peter wasn't able to avoid car trips to the trailhead and he got a crash-course in backcountry ski safety too.
