🎿The sport of SkiMo racing – aka Ski Mountaineering – has been growing at exponential rates as people discover the joy of human-powered uphill ascents in a resort setting. And few mountains offer as scenic a backdrop for a SkiMo race as @DiamondPeak, which features panoramic Lake Tahoe views from both courses.⁠

For our current issue’s Earn Your Beer article, columnist James Murren takes us on a no-agenda, no-plan snow bike ride outside of Yosemite’s south gate in Sierra National Forest.⁠

After “earning his beer” fat biking through a winter wonderland, James enjoyed a can of Citra Dreampint by @newglorybrewery, a hazy offering, followed up with New Glory’s Gummy Worms, a “chewy pale ale.” 🍺⁠

Read about the earning and the beer at the link in our bio 🔗⁠

How do YOU “earn your beer” or other treat? We’d love to hear about your adventures and favorite rewards! ⁠

“From the very beginning, ASJ was intended to be a space where people could be authentic about their adventures. We only sought the truth in our pages. Twenty years later we are still seeking the truth about why we test ourselves in magical landscapes. Not to seek danger for danger’s sake, but because we know that without challenge and a measured dose of risk we can’t evolve and progress as human beings.” 🗻⁠

Welcome to ASJ Editor-in-Chief Matt Niswonger ’s latest message in Issue #127 (read it in full at the 🔗 in our bio). We invite you to pick up a copy and find the inspiration to push past your own physical and emotional comfort zones! 💓⁠
