About the Author

While it is mere conjecture to say so, the probability that there is another ski writer who was the last known winner of the George Award (for biggest butthead in the ski biz, while marketing director at Head), on the last team to win the Streeter Cup (a brand vs. brand ski industry race, won by now moribund Olin), wrote material for the last issues of Ski Business, Snow Country Business, Wintersport Business, Ski Tech and the first iteration of Mountain Sports and Living, designed a line of skis (for Scott) never sold in the US, composed hundreds of ski reviews for Snow Country Magazine and London Daily Mail Ski - none of which, mercifully, appear in Controlled Fall - and worked on four Warren Miller flicks and two Greg Stump productions largely without attribution, hovers near zero.

It only seems as though Hogen’s career laid waste to several cherished skiing institutions and decimated the fortunes of a handful of previously iconic brands. In fact, his ability to dilute the significance of any institution to which he associated his name began long before, during a colorful stint on the Probation rolls at Andover followed by a Yale degree capped with the establishment of the John E G Hogen Award for Distinguished Service to Hedonism. (We’re getting a little misty.)

Hogen’s short-form work, sometime humorous, always provocative, appears regularly at www.jacksonhogen.com.
