Steve Casimiro

If it involves fresh air and the threat of bodily harm, Steve Casimiro does it: mountain biking (120 days a year), skiing (50 days a year), surfing, skateboarding, climbing, backpacking. Makes you wonder how he has time to be a contributing editor for ADVENTURE (see his "Vegas Rocks" online and in the January/February 2001 issue) and to write and photograph for Outside, Men's Journal, Skiing, and Powder (where he was editor for nine years), among others.

Let me know when Steve posts answers!




What to do? Where to go? What to buy?

Powder Buff Steve Casimiro Answers Your Snow-Sports and Winter Gear Questions.

Q:

I went snowboarding three weeks ago and tore ligaments in my outer right ankle. They are healing fine, but when can I go back up?

—Lucien J. Antonson, San Diego, California

I'm not a doctor, but I played a drunk actor in a junior high school presentation of Our American Cousin, which I believe makes me qualified to offer the following suggestion: If your life depends on it or if Mammoth gets a big phat dump, you can snowboard tomorrow. Otherwise, wait until it doesn't hurt.
