My name’s Jessica Melanson. I’m in my third year at Northeastern University studying journalism with something of a pre-law bent (double minor in criminal justice and law and public policy). I spent my last semester working at The Patriot Ledger in Quincy, Mass. I also write for and sit on the e-board of NU Science Magazine as the web developer.
I’m from the Greater Boston area and grew up skiing with my family, so I have a great love of the sport and a lot of good memories from ski trips with family and friends.
This blog, started for a journalism class, will explore skiing in New England resorts, skiing equipment, and other related topics.
The picture in the header is a view of the mountains from the top of a peak at Breckenridge Ski Resort in Colorado. I took it in early March 2012 on a ski vacation with my family.
