Josh Daiek comes home to Kirkwood

Kirkwood-based Josh Daiek, who won the 2012 Freesking World Tour, spent most of this winter on the road.

Junk in the Truck: Patagonia Down Sweater

If you live in a ski town, you probably own this already

On the coldest of storm days, the Patagonia Down Sweater is an ideal layer underneath my shell. It’s quilted with 800-fill-power European goose down, which is why this jacket is so dang warm.
