Elisabeth is a freelance writer who likes to think she has cornered the theater-and-skiing niche. Now based in Brooklyn, NY, she grew up on the French island of Corsica, in the Mediterranean. And yes, she used to ski there as a kid, at the Asco, Vergio and Ghisoni hills. (Did you know that Corsica's highest peak, Monte Cinto, tops out at 8,878 ft.? Not too shabby.) She also went on yearly trips to the French Alps with her family. After a long break from skiing (the usual reasons: not enough time, not enough money), she went back to it with a vengeance. She tends to prefer unfussy resorts like Alta, Grand Targhee, Loveland, Powder Mountain and Taos. Her favorite way to hit them is on road trips fueled by gas-station coffee.
Elisabeth loves watching World Cup ski racing on TV and can wax poetic about it at great length. She does not race herself, though she doesn't mind looking foolish on a NASTAR course whenever possible.
Favorite Resort / Trail:
Catherine's Area @ Alta
Niseko in Japan. Pending that, a road trip on the Powder Highway in Canada.
2020-21 Season Goals:
Ski more than I did in the shortened 2019-20 season — shouldn't be too hard!
Most Days in a Season:
Still not enough!
