The Expedition Journal


The idea for the Quarantine ReScreen came from the hype of Premier Season in the ski/snowboard world (aka Fall, one of the 4 weather seasons that normal people acknowledge). Therefor it seemed only fitting to feature Mark Warner’s podcast interview with Jeff Schmuck on The Low Pressure Podcast. Schmuck is the head judge of IF3 and serves as the editor of Forecast Ski Magazine.

In the time of COVID-19, a lot of us have found ourselves with an uptick in how much screen time is present in our lives. If you’re like me, that means a lot of scrolling, and quite a bit of combing through content in search of something that a) I want to watch, and b) something that will hold my attention. So, it seems an appropriate time to roll out the #QRS, or, the Quarantine ReScreen.

I’ve been sliding on snow for twenty three years now and have been teaching both snowboarding and skiing professionally for nine of those years. I get to spend time with people from all walks of life who have a goal of improving their snowboarding so that they can enjoy the activity in their own life. Most of the time snowboarding is part of a trip or vacation for them, so the goal is always to have fun. My job is to make sure people are having fun… yeah, I know, but someone has to do it. Rest assured, I am equipped with an arsenal of dad jokes for the cause.
