    my name is Rob Story, and I'm a writer for SKIING Magazine. I was an editor/writer at POWDER for years, and still write for them sometimes, as well as Backcountry and Outside. Anyway, I want to describe the Maggot phenomenon in SKIING.

    Could you answer a few questions?
    1. How many maggots are there? Do you have a geographical concentration (like the West, etc.)
    2. How'd the name maggots originate? Did it have anything to do with Powder Magazine?
    3. Is it true you were insulted/bothered by Powdermag.com and moved to TGR afterward? What did Powdermag.com do wrong?
    4. What percentage or number of other maggots have you actually met face to face?
    5. Do you ever ski with someone you've only met online? What's that like?
    6. How would you describe the ski ability of the average maggot?
    7. Do you get a sense that online forums like this one keep skiing alive 12 mos of the year? Is that good or bad?
    8. What's the coolest advice/link/etc. ever shared by maggots?
    9. How have your fellow maggots improved skiing for you?
    10. How much more do you trust fellow maggots' opinions on gear than stuff you read in a magazine, etc?

    All answers comments and even complaints are welcome.

    Cheers,
    Rob Story

    I've been shown incredible hospitality and goodwill as a relative JONG here. I've bought gear at incredible prices and been given advice and counsel on a number of important issues unanswerable elsewhere.

    I got a great day of insider skiing at Alta last winter form a pair of mags who took their day of skiing to show me and my lovely wife around their home area, and was offered another day with a different mag but the wires got crossed and it didn't happen. Hope to repeat (the actual meeting) this season and possibly meet some other utards.

    Attended a longboard day and was warmly welcomed by perfect strangers. Of course, they did abscond with my Reisling bottle.



    Met up with a mag who took me mountain biking, and hope to ski with more mags this season.

    The skill level I've encountered is quite high, and my 13 yr. old son teases me about my 'online buddies'.

    I hope I've managed to contribute a thing or two (at most) but it would be difficult to ever catch up compared to what I've been offered. Good bunch of knuckleheads here.
    This... Mags are good, its hard for people to not notice... I am waiting for more opportunities to return the favor...

    You're not missing much, unless you mean splat's earlier one. I don't think I've read that.

    Man, shit do evolve, don't it? That 13 year old is indeed drinking in bars, and soon graduating from college. That 11 year old did win a 4 star FWQ recently. Hope he wins more. and the one that was 9 is spending the winter ripping in Tahoe, sending the old 40 road gap, and standing on junior podiums following in brother's footsteps toward the FWQ and, they hope, the FWT. Anything's possible, right?

    Reading my now years-old post above makes me realize how being a part of this community has contributed to their success and some great of my best times. Some friendships I hold very dear were initiated through this place. Pretty fuckin cool.
