They say that lightning doesn’t strike twice, but I beg to differ. Because for the second year in a row, TheSkiDiva blog has been granted the Harold S. Hirsch Award by NASJA, otherwise known as the North American Snowsports Journalists Association. Created by the founder of the White Stag clothing company to promote professionalism in winter sports coverage, the Award recognizes creativity and excellence in editorial and artistic content in both print and broadcast journalism.

EpicSki, the biggest ski community on the web, announced they’d be going offline on April 27*. And yes, it is indeed a tragic loss.
Since 1999, Epic has been the go-to source for ski information and fellowship. Whatever you wanted to know about skiing, you could pretty much find it on EpicSki. In fact, it helped inspire me to start TheSkiDiva.com more than ten years ago.
