It's been maybe 7 or 8 years since I have gone skiing and I'm surprised how easy it was to jump back into the snow. Skiing is 90% confidence, so if you're brave enough to hurtle yourself over the side of a cliff with twigs strapped to your feet, you're basically set. Technique is just there to keep you alive on the way down.
We skied several slopes around Salt Lake City, including some of the old Olympic runs, but we made sure to take a mid-week break for some shoots and a full spa day. I definitely needed my legs rubbed down-- those mountain trails can be a workout! But just check out those birch trees and gorgeous mountains in the background! It's like Narnia.
And super exciting: while I'm here in Utah, I have partnered with Noah Waxman to give away a pair of Hudson boots!
I am in love with these boots. Noah has an all-American style that I really connect with but his training is actually in classic European shoemaking. His Made-In-America line is crafted from the best leather and it's made to last. He's a super genuine guy and his designs are spot on. Check out his full collection here and see all the details below on how you can win yourself a pair of these boots!
I am excited to partner with Noah Waxman and give away a pair of these awesome Hudson boots in English Tan ($595). They are handmade in the US from Horween leather and their Goodyear construction means they will last a lifetime! You can pass these down to your kids!
