The sooner you can get kids on the slopes, the sooner you can get back to your ski addiction. It’s that simple. And whether you teach them yourself or hire a ski instructor, making sure your kids are both warmly dressed and using the right equipment is key. After all, a shivering toddler on oversized skis isn’t likely to want to join dad on that next big run. Good equipment will not only keep your kids safe but also get them stoked for their time on the hill.
You don’t hit the links with one club in your bag, so why make your kids hit the sledding hill with just one sled? These 15 snow whips provide for all manner of riding styles and prepare kids of all ages (read: kids who can’t steer and adult who can’t stop) for all sorts of different conditions. Still, as different as these sleds all are, they made the list of our top sleds for one reason: They ride fast and smooth.
I taught myself how to ride a bike when I was 8 or 9. As an adult, I started biking as a form of climate activism. I wanted to get from point A to point B without a combustible engine that would destroy the planet. My first bike in the US was a red Schwinn I got on Craigslist for $100. I wanted to turn it into a flip-flop hub fixie, but the men at the bike shop told me I was being ridiculous.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
