Outdoors is an equalizer. If you do the outdoors, your body sweats and your hair is a mess. This is Smuggler’s Notch, not Vail. These are outdoor families and people that feel real. I like places like this and people who are comfortable being like this. Dog walkers in Breakheart; bare-boaters sailing independently & living on a boat; scuba divers vacationing to dive all day & night; skiers on green runs; snow shoe-ers descending a mountain in the dark.
This is my outdoors persona this week:
I liken my look to Olympic “shredders” – even though I’m gliding my skis on gentle greens. I know. I’m taking extreme liberties in borrowing that term. I’m 47. I don’t snowboard. But I do like pulling off the balaclava and knowing that massive hat head is OK here.
Much like Spring’s Gate Girl.
