6 Wine Bars To Visit Around Salt Lake City

Before I worked in the ski industry, I got my feet wet in the wine world while working at small wine shops in Boulder, Colorado.

In Fond Remembrance of Powder, the Skier’s Magazine

In October 2020, Powder Magazine announced it was shuttering. The publication served as the indelible voice of skiing for 49 years, and its absence leaves an enormous void in ski culture. For people like me who grew up outside the influential sphere of a ski town, Powder was authoritative and essential, yet irreverent and authentic. It blended aspirational stories of far-flung trips to mountain ranges around the globe with tales of working-class heroes scratching out an existence devoted solely ...

Stio: Gear With a Sustainable Vision

I started seeing around the greater west a handful of years ago. Ski pants and jackets started showing up in lift lines, appearing on skin tracks and popping up at après. And every time I saw the apparel pieces, I’d comment to anyone near me on the pretty colors or how technical the fabrics looked. But turns out, what’s underneath the stunning coats and mountain aura that emanates off the soft goods is something even better—a growing mission and vision to create clothes responsibly.

2021 Sundance Film Festival Awards Go to ‘Coda,’ ‘Summer of Soul,’ and More
