Those behind the scenes at XCSkiResorts.com
Roger Lohr, co-founder and editor-in-chief of XCSkiResorts.com, loves classic skiing on xc ski trails, bushwhacking in the backcountry, and telemarking or snowboarding in powder. He is a writer and researcher, who lives in Hanover, NH and is involved with subjects including snow sports, energy, and environment. He currently produces XCSkiResorts.com and the SnoCountry.com SnoNews Cross Country News & Information column and has a Twitter feed @XCSkiTravel.

He edits and contributes to the CCSAA Nordic Network, monthly newsletter for the industry ski area association and recently he joined SnowEast Magazine as the "Board Report" columnist. He serves on the NH Statewide Trails Advisory Committee; developed and ran NH BikeSmart bringing bike safety presentations to elementary schools; served the Eastern Ski Writers Association Board and is a member of the North American Snowsports Journalists Association; and created the Idling Awareness & Reduction Tool Kit blog at www.idlingtoolkit.com
Charlie Leocha, co-founder of xcskiresorts.com and creator of skisnowboard.com, skisnowboardeurope.com, and ConsumerTraveler.com shuffles between a home in New Hampshire and an apartment in northern VA. He has managed to ski at almost every major alpine ski resort in North America and Europe and has reported on xc ski facilities near alpine resorts for more than a decade. If there are exceptional places to dine and stay near any cross-country ski resort, Charlie is the person to find them.
Karen Cummings has been writing about skiing for more than a decade. She lives life, balanced between Boston and Maine, with a smile. Karen began skiing at the tender age of 25 and immediately discovered après-skiher specialty. These days her nightlife forays are research. Karen is an expert shopper and has bought something at every resort she has visited. Karen wrote much of the original cross-country ski entries on SkiSnowboard.com before XCSkiResorts.com became its own Web site. Thank you so much - We're indebted!
