John Nelson is The SkiZer
Ever since I was a little kid, skiing provided life’s biggest thrills. Nordic, downhill, backcountry — it’s all good as far as I’m concerned. At age 61, I’m still pushing for that next epic day.
When it’s not ski season, I’m hiking and bicycling. Backpacking throughout the West is a summer passion.
I’m a regular contributor to The Seattle Times, The Spokesman-Review, Los Angeles Times and SeniorsSkiing.com, I’m a longtime journalist who has worked at newspapers in Seattle, Spokane, Memphis and Colorado, and for MSN.com.
