VIDEO: Living the Dream, and Making it Look Easy

Whispers in the middle of the snowy woods

An afternoon walk in the woods, no sound except for the scraping of skis on snow, deep breathing, and the whispered words as you marvel at this slice of paradise that no one in the world seems to know about except for you and a few others.

Those moments are perfect.

The skier in this particular scene is Chip Chase. His secret place is in Westbygod Virginia. We won’t tell you much more, except that you should read the feature in the February issue to get the full picture.
