It’s that time of year. The time when we look back longingly on another great ski season. We know we can speak for many when we say we enjoyed our share of deep powder days, sun-blessed groomer cruisin’ afternoons and laughable end-of-season antics.

Originally from the icy trails of New Jersey, I moved West to pursue powder and a career in writing and editing. Now in Aspen, Colo. and working for Ski.com managing the website and blog content, I couldn't be happier. You'll find me skiing at Aspen Mountain or Aspen Highlands in the winter and mountain biking at Snowmass in the summer.
