15–17 Nov 2024 170 days to go! #SnowboundExpo Tickets

Graham Smith

I’m a year-round outdoor enthusiast who loves hiking, camping, sailing, and climbing when winter comes to a bitter end.

I’ve been skiing since I was big enough to walk and when my parents finally pulled me out of the on-mountain day care. Since graduating college, I’ve spent as much time on the slopes in the winter as possible.

While I’ll get a late start to the season this year while I nurse an ACL surgery, I’ll still be entering my second winter as a volunteer with Operation Snowsports through YES – Youth Enrichment Services – where I’ll coach Boston area youth and teach them the joys of skiing as well as spend some time in their ski shop keeping donated gear tuned.

This winter I’m looking forward to getting some time on the mountain in Vermont, New Hampshire, Maine, and Tahoe.
