In case you haven't caught this yet, earlier this week I had the opportunity to dive into the Globe archives, where I found hundreds of fantastic skiing images from the past eight decades. It's remarkable to see that no matter how vastly the sport has changed, the core reasons for why we ski, and what it means to call ourselves skiers and riders, resonates with a strong presence through the photos of strangers. Hopefully we can share more in the coming months.
Until then, enjoy. And happy holidays. We'll see you on the hill.
