There are approximately 32 days before ski season is officially underway. (That is if you go off of past season’s competition between Loveland and Arapahoe Basin). Not only am I excited to don the gear, strap on my skis and shoosh down the hill, but I’m excited to be back in the industry.

Now that's the spirit .. taking a bite out of the 'Basin

As of Monday, I’ll be the digital editor for Vail Resorts, coordinating the innovative buzz.snow.com. Which means I’ll have the freedom and ability to write, talk, look at and eat up the snow sports lifestyle all day long. Perfect.

Since leaving my position at SkiNet.com over a year ago, I’ve been sitting like a dog in the window of a pet shop as I watch many of my former colleagues continue building their presence within the ski industry. I did find a great position at a natural foods magazine and really loved working with the people that I did, but it just wasn’t as fulfilling as those shots of perfectly placed powder invading my brain.

So, I’m off! On Monday I’ll be back in a winter state of mind trying to bring as much exposure to the ski industry as I can, while still expanding my knowledge of all things social media and web.

My request to you is two fold. Do you want to help me with Mountain Girls this season? I’d love another contributor or two taking pictures of badass mountain chicks and scoping out their local areas for girl-friendly ski and apres spots. Let me know.

Also – what do you want to see on Mountain Girls? I plan on doing a “Gaper of the Week,” coverage of women doing cool things and the latest reports on gear, gear, and more gear.

Ski like a girl!

Welcome to Mountain Girls!

"Yeah, you look good too."


We hope you’ve found this blog because you’re looking for information on skiing, fashion, gear, gapers, instruction, snow, mountain sports, high country living, and apres scenes written by mountain girls, for mountain girls. If not, we’re glad you’re here anyway and hope you’ll either be entertained or informed by our site.

We started Mountain Girls because we saw a hole in the ski industry for information on women’s gear, women’s skiing and more. Yeah, we enjoy publications and websites designed for the whole mountain population, but we think the women’s mountain experience is unique and we thought we could reflect that in this blog.

For now, we are still under construction, so if you have any suggestions on what we should cover or how we should do it, please leave a comment below. We’ll try to bring you as much information as soon as possible, so be patient. The site will be up and rocking soon.

Interested in being a contributor? Let Morgan know. We’d love to have reporters representing every section of the states (and possibly the world) reporting on awesome ladies taking the industry by storm.
