Confessions Of A Snowboomer

By Pippin Ross [3/15/2002]

Skiing generates a lot of travel in the U.S. over the winter. Upwards of 60 percent of all skiers on any given mountain, on any given day, have traveled there from afar for the downhill thrills. The other 40 or so travel too, from fairly nearby.

Our contributor Pippin Ross is a lifelong skier. She's been driving up to the slopes of New England for years.

But this year, she decided to join the younger, grunge set and ride down the mountain on a board, instead of her trusty skis.

Like any good traveler anywhere, Pippin's always up for trying something new and daring -- no matter how painful.
