Tess Weaver

Tess is a writer and editor who moved to Aspen 10 years ago after working in the ski industry at Powder magazine, Oakley and Freeskier magazine. She was lucky enough to ski around the world and landed in Aspen for its skiing, setting, community, access, climate and culture. Mostly, she says, for its soul. Tess has been writing for magazines, newspapers and brands for almost 20 years, covering everything from surfing in Bali for Surfer and uphill skiing for The Wall Street Journal to inmates building bikes for Outside and Olympic freeskiing for The Atlantic.
