On this day of thanks I can think of many things to appreciate. Family, friends, amazing freedoms — not to mention Dynafit bindings. But specific to WildSnow I want to thank all you guys who’ve supported this crazy endeavor over the past four years. If it wasn’t for your emails, comments, criticism, guest blogs, advertiser support and more, we’d be gone by now or at least look very different. Instead, we’ve got what we need to keep it all coming at you.
What’s been amazing is the realization we can do all (and even more than) we used to fantasize about when print media was the only option. In those days, the cost of ink and paper underpinned everything with a penalty. On top of that, you had a heinous built-in delay that made publishing hot information feel like running backwards in a marathon.
The web changed all that, and we intend to revel in it — with all of you along for the ride.
So happy Thanksgiving everyone from WildSnow.com!
