A ski company that is BY women and FOR women? Yes please!

The past decade has been huge for women in the outdoor arena. We don’t have to wear mens mountaineering boots anymore and I finally retired my first hardshell {a men’s size XS} in favor of the dozens of female-specific shells on the market today.

Whew! March is rolling by at a ridiculous speed and I’m barely able to catch my breath. I had hoped to go live with a more substantial post today, but that’s going to have to wait. Until then, let’s catch up on what’s current in my life!

When winter rolls around, there’s one place you’re likely to find me: on the ski hill, yelling “BRING ON THE SNOWS!” But for awhile this season, the snows just weren’t happening. Fortunately, the weather gods finally got it together and spent the past few weeks dropping inches upon feet of the fluffy stuff. Naturally, the entire state of Colorado came out to play, and I was no different. I rounded up some friends {along with my sister, who was in town from Hawaii!} and headed to one my fave ski hills: Copper Mountain.
