had eyes set on this objective in Haines, AK but the help couldn’t drop him at the top of his intended line. So he sidestepped up the narrow and exposed ridge line, trying not to let his fear of heights get the best of him. Ultimately, everything came together and he laced his line in the Last Frontier.

“I’m still not sure what I want to be when I grow up,” my mom told me. At the time, she was in her 50s, and I was in college. I was baffled. Didn’t adults already know exactly what they wanted to do in life? Or better yet, didn’t they kind of have to at that point?…

As I’ve navigated life’s twists and turns, I often think back on my mom’s statement about growing up. How we never really have to decide exactly what we’re going to be. Not because of a lack of commitment, but because we’re never too old to learn something new. We’re never too old to challenge ourselves. To go deeper into the mountains, to ski more, to never accept that something is out of reach…

Excerpts from “When I Grow Up: Mother’s Day From The Mountains” written by .krass.ritter. It’s a heartfelt tribute to her backcountry skiing mom and all the rad matriarchs of the world, now live on the site. Drop in through link in bio. And from our crew to yours, have a happy Mother’s Day.

The Ski Journal is very pleased to welcome Katie Lozancich () to the team as our new Photo Editor.

Katie Lozancich has worked as an action sports photographer and storyteller for the past 10 years, working for Teton Gravity Research as Digital Content Coordinator & Contributor before starting her own freelance photography business.

Growing up in Sacramento, it wasn’t until after high school that Katie fell in love with skiing. She remembers seeing her first Warren Miller film as a teenager, which later prompted her to drop everything and move to Truckee, CA to pursue life in the mountains. She earned a degree in Photography from Sierra College as well as a degree in Visual Communications from Seattle Pacific University, before chasing winter to Jackson, WY. In 2023, Katie was recognized as a Red Bull Illume semi-finalist, and has produced features stories for Freehub Magazine, as well as multimedia campaigns for Arc’teryx, Red Bull, Pivot Cycles and Destination Queenstown.

She now calls western Massachusetts home where she also works as a ski instructor at Berkshire East, sharing her love of the sport with others.

“First, we want to recognize and thank Andrew Marshall () for seven years of being a great photo editor and emissary for The Ski Journal. We look forward to his continuing as an emeritus part of the family, helping with special projects and features,” said Publisher Jeff Galbraith. “And we very much look forward to Katie Lozancich helping lead us into the next chapter. With her keen eye for imagery and a deep love for ski culture, The Ski Journal remains in great hands. Katie’s appreciation for both ski history and the wide-open future continues and strengthens The Ski Journal’s nearly twenty-year mission.”

Look at the license plates of the Tacomas in Alta’s parking lot, and most of them will have the slogan, “Greatest Snow on Earth.” This catchphrase has long been used by Utah’s ski marketers. Is it true? Professor Jim Steenburgh is the person on the planet most qualified to answer that question. So, we asked him.

Gordy Peifer mugging in the parking lot at Alaska Backcountry Adventures and later pushing steep skiing into new terrain, circa 1998/2000.

“There was definitely an explosion, but he lived to tell the tale.

The whole scene around Valdez, AK was so cool back then—a parking lot filled with campers and degenerate ski bums just over Thompson Pass. You could go heli-skiing and pay for it by the run—$45 a bump.”

“Another minus-22-degree Fahrenheit night in Joensuu, Finland. launches air to fakie over and old saw machine. It was so cold my flashes stopped working, so I had to take a long exposure with a tripod using manual flashes. This shot is composed of two different photos because I had to light both sides of the image separately.”
