After three years at The Skier’s Magazine, I’ve decided to say goodbye to POWDER and step away as managing editor in order to pursue other projects. Who knows. Maybe I’ll even restart The Ski Show. It’s a comforting feeling, going out on top, after the mag won two Maggies for our December issue and one for best use of social media. Three years ago, nobody on staff had Twitter and today we’re winning awards for excellence in speaking to the POWDER readers. Very cool.
POWDER gave me the opportunity to see the world and for that I will be forever grateful. I’d like to thank the entire Grind Media staff for memories that I won’t soon forget and the POWDER staff for being an extended family.
Jake Moe, one of POWDER’s co-founders, said the secret to life is to “move to the mountains, have a ton of great friends, and ski your hearts out.” As such, I’ve moved to Truckee, California, and can be reached via email at RoggeM85@gmail.com. If I don’t get back to you right away, it’s because I’m working on that third part of Jake’s advice.
