I am a Colorado girl. As soon as I could walk my parents had me in ski boots. By high school, I had joined the telemark ski team, and in college, I continued to share my passion for the sport by coaching weekly telemark classes at the local mountain. I live for “pow pow days:” Days when the tourists’ rental cars can’t get to the mountain and the terrain is comprised purely of die hard shredders just enjoying Mother Nature’s gifts. #gnarpoints I went to school in Maine. Storm Nemo hit the East in my senior year of Bates, Winter of 2013. Classes were canceled, administration encouraged students to not leave their dorms, and my best friend and I headed to the hill, Sugar Loaf USA. #skitheeast I thought I had experienced the best winter has to offer given my upbringing and college location, and then there was Boston Winter 2015. Sorry Minnesota, this time, you’ve got nothing on us.
Mayor Walsh initiated a city wide lockdown. I had my first of several ever real world snow days. Thank you Storm Juno. Cars were covered until May, and I fully embraced the concept of eating my feelings and have never watched more Netflix in my life. I thought I had seen it all. Then, we had golf balls penetrating our Maya chaise and complimenting Montego outdoor dinning collections on August 4, 2015. Not into it. I’m a Capricorn, I do winters, I do snow, in fact, I love it, however, I don’t do golf ball sized hail in the summer. None the less, our outdoor furniture withstood it all. Record breaking amounts of snow to golf ball sized hail. Yup, the ipe wood on the Montego collection remained flawless, the upholstered, Sunbrella, Maya chaise cushions drained the moisture and the eco-friendly, 100% recycled plastic, Emmett Lounge held its own. New England weather keeps us at Room & Board Boston on our toes and continues to serve as a testament to the durability and quality of our outdoor furniture offerings. Our outdoor product is made to handle the elements regardless of the season. #truth #forthewin
