Editorial Internship

If you're a motivated and self-directed college or grad-school student, we want you to join our editorial team in Boulder, Colo. Our 10- to 15-week unpaid internships offer upcoming reporters and editors a glimpse into the inner workings of the best ski publication in the country: SKI magazine. You give us hard work, and we'll make you an integral part of a close-knit family.

You'll work directly with the small group of SKI editors and walk away with clips from SKImag.com as well as in print. You'll also conduct interviews with athletes, be involved in gear write-ups, work on photo projects, and see how two of the most respected skiing publications come together.

While priority will be given to applicants in the Boulder and greater Denver metro area, we will accept applications for remote internships this autumn as well. 

Duties

Duties may include fact-checking, researching, reporting, writing, proofreading and editing articles, calling in products and gear for testing, gathering and shooting photos, participating in editorial meetings, developing multimedia packages for the web, brainstorming story ideas, planning events and editing basic HTML. Don't worry, we try to keep the coffee-getting to a minimum.

Qualifications

Interns must be willing to adapt to the ever-changing world of a trusted ski publication while being reliable and not afraid to bring ideas to the table. Previous journalism experience—either with a local publication or a student newspaper—is preferred. Knowledge of, and interest in, skiing is required.

Start Date

TBD

All internships are unpaid. Interns must receive school credit.

Duties May Include

Accepting, archiving, and reviewing photographer submissions, photo research, obtaining photo caption and credit information, formatting files for print and digital output, prepping files for imaging specialists, assisting with product shoots in the studio, and even shooting some product on your own.

Skiing Will Never Be The Same: The Life and Death of Shane McConkey

On the surface, there was the nose picking on camera, the scatological humor, the pranks, and the endless self-mockery. But Shane McConkey was no lightweight. He revolutionized skiing three times—challenging what we ski, how we ski, and even how we think about skiing.
