About this issue ...

Well, here it is. The Y2K issue. We continue our attempt to bring you the best of the freeheel world. Let us know what you'd like to see in future issues.

2000 has us thinking wide boards (we're riding the Igneous Pinner, World Piste, and Olin Selkirk), deep snow, and big, fast GS turns. We hope for another La Nina winter here in the Northwest. And the quest for more time - time for skiing, time for Descender, and time to kick back and enjoy it. We are trying to print some stickers, so if you see us on the mountain hit us up for a couple.

Keep on rockin in the free world,
The Descender Crew

Descender welcomes submissions. We will consider all stories, interviews, photos, running columns, etc. We are not responsible for anything. Please do not send original drafts. If you have photos for consideration, post them to a Web site and send a URL if you can. We are three guys that unfortunately have other jobs and we devote all the time we can to Descender and putting out the best issue possible. We are busy. We would feel terrible if we lost a masterpiece, but we would get over it. So send them in, but remember to send a copy.
