…WITHOUT WHOM THIS ISSUE WOULD NOT HAVE BEEN POSSIBLE
A former editor at Powder, Strokes—an Oregon native who landed in Aspen in 2010 and has written for The Atlantic, Outside, Surfer, and other publications—penned three stories for this issue, including a roundup of the season’s must-have gear (page 124).
What piece of gear can you not live without? My Felt e-bike. It’s my car and kid transporter. The pedal-assist means we can cruise at 20 mph with little effort and maximum fun. Sunny Saturday in Aspen—where can you be found? I usually take my 3-year-old to the farmers market and then up the gondola to play in what we call the “highaltitude sandbox.” In the evening, we play and picnic at one of our favorite river beaches. Who would be your ultimate interview? Freya Stark, a British explorer and travel writer—and spy!— who was the first Westerner to travel many regions of the Middle East.
