on Westword’s Best Of List!

01 Apr, 2010

Each year Denver’s alternative weekly newspaper Westword hands out awards in their Best Of list and as an alternative paper it’s the best list out there for being funny, honest and a good voice for the people.  I read through the best of list for last year and love that they include snowboarding/skiing in many of the sports awards.

I had gotten wind that my blog was recommended to their best of list but I didn’t want to get my hopes up in case they changed their mind.  Today I saw through twitter and then verified online that had won BEST SNOWBOARD BLOG!!!

I’m honored to make their best of list for sports and recreation for best snowboard blog, has the best readers and I’m so grateful for the recognition.  I found a way to express my passion for snowboarding and it’s become such a rad journey that I feel extremely lucky to have this blog.
