The Cinder Cone – 1979
By Doug Mazell
Of all the books and articles I read in college the most important was a very cool story in SKI magazine. This article was about living the life of a true ski bum. I saved the magazine and re-read the story often. Two years later it was time to act and I found myself heading north to the mountains from Los Angeles with a college friend in his tan 1967 El Camino. This adventure would lead to my fifteen minutes of fame and the experience of something going viral before going viral even existed.
