As the saying goes, you don't know where you're going unless you know where you've been. Powder and K2 have been there, and we're here to help you get your bearings straight. We're sending you back to class. It's time to get Old Schooled.
The concept is simple: Over the next four months we will post a classic story from past Powder magazines. Your homework will be to read the story, and write an essay about a related theme. Each month Powder will print the best essay in our Posthole section (letters to the editor). At the end of the contest, the writer of the best article out of our four finalists will win a trip to Powder's 40th Anniversary Party in Sun Valley this fall.
So sharpen up your pencils, start reading, and get Old Schooled.
» One winning submission will be featured in Powder magazine (Oct., Nov., Dec., Jan. issues)
» Each Winner will receive a K2 prize pack (skis, skins, backcountry kit and hand-sanitizer)
» Grand Prize Winner will be selected from four individual winners to receive an all expenses paid trip to Powder's 40th Anniversary Bash in Sun Valley, ID
