Pockets

That’s my name.  Don’t wear it out.

“Pockets” isn’t my real name. And it wasn’t really on my list of “100 Favorite Nicknames” either. But my friends gave it to me, so I love it and cherish it. Or something.

As evident from the photo of 9 year old me, I learned to ski as a kid, and, maybe not as evident, I learned it in the Alps and went skiing there almost every winter well into college age, so I have high expectations. I like tall and rugged mountains, well-groomed slopes, powdery snow, short lift lines, beautiful vistas and pretty little ski villages.

I also like adventure, snowstorms, exploring, and – to balance it out – good food and good drinks at the end of a long day. Preferably curled up with dear friends in front of a blazing fireplace.

On the practical side of things, I’m a big believer in “proper planning prevents poor performance”, which means getting the logistics right ahead of time so you don’t have to worry about the small (or not-so-small) stuff during your precious time on the mountain. Excel is your friend. 😎

On the artsy side of things, I enjoy photography and thus will also contribute some of my favorite shots, along with tips and tricks for creating your own visual memories of epic ski vacations. Let’s go!
