Yes, this is a shameles plug—but a plug I'm pretty damn proud of. Almost a year ago I jumped in a car with a bunch of urban skiers in Montreal that made its meandered its way to Minneapolis over two weeks. The experience was as exciting as it was exhausting and putting that all on paper was one of the toughest assignments I'd ever tackled.

Fast forward a year, and I finally get to see my first feature in print. It's amazing how all of the struggles that went into the piece fade to background noise when you get the paper into your hand. Feeling pretty thankful right now.
