Thanks for asking.
A few years back, Powder said something way gay in a story or a caption. Chris wrote a letter from the Ski Bums account saying how much he loved the magazine, had been skiing and reading the mag for years, and that he thought our use of the word gay as a derogatory adjective was off-putting. He made it clear he wasn't trying to cause any political correctness B.S., just that, and this is my favorite part, he believed Powder was more clever than to use the word in that way.
And you know, he was right. Sometimes the editors are up till 3 or 4 in the morning, trying to come up with a funny caption. After a few Tecates and nights without sleep, we'd slip something like that in and forget about it so we could finish the magazine on time.
Anyways, I wrote him back, thanked him for the letter, and offered a group discount to his ski club. Years later, after the Supreme Court decision this week, I decided it would be a timely interview.
