It snowed so much in Tahoe last winter that photographer Ryan Salm got bored shooting powder days. "I found myself branching out and looking for new subject matter," he said. It was then he had a conversation with a couple of skiers regarding some rare first descents. With avy danger high and resorts on a weather hold, John Dzintars Rarick had told Bevan Waite about a "sick pillow line." It ended up being a house. "We were hooked on house hucking," said Waite after he jumped his first rooftop.
The October issue of POWDER Magazine is on newsstands now, with stories from Israel, the Lost Sierra, New York City, and Bridger BowlA singular Israeli ski community thrives along one of the most militarized borders in the world. Read more. One day not long ago, above a tumbledown gold mining camp at the upper headwaters of the Feather River, a contest was underway. Two contenders—the last men standing in a field of 16—maneuvered to the starting line at the top of the slope.
To find a good job this winter, go with the word of the webIt's no secret, making a life in the ski industry is hard. Balancing finding a job, finding affordable housing, scraping enough dough together for a season pass, and doing what you actually moved to a mountain town for, going skiing, can seem like a daunting task. Gard Skinner, founder of skiresortjobs.org, wants to make that process a little easier. "There was a huge lack in our industry of a central hiring resource," said Skinner.
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 Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
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, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
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".
