Y'all may remember from an earlier post of mine that when I first moved to Whitefish as a fresh faced 22 year old, I did not know how to ski and yet somehow interviewed for the Snow Reporter position at Big Mountain, where I first heard "mashed potatoes" and "corn" used in reference to snow.
I can talk about frog stranglers and my third cousins twice removed and the subtleties between North and South Carolina barbeque sauces with authority and panache. And while we're on the subject, barbeque is a noun, y'all, not a verb. I'm a proud product of Virginia + Georgia, and though I've been a Montana devotee for 27 years now, and lived here full time since 2002, my first and native tongue will always be that of the South.
But of course I've learned other languages in my life, those of English majors, lawyers, and retail honey specialists, and two months into my career here at Wheelie, I'm trying to pick up a new one: design. Outdoor specialty industry design, to be specific. Emails filter in and out of my inbox all day that keep urbandictionary.com open in my browser, as I strive for fluency.
The graphics on that hat are straight steezy.
I'd heard the term in passing before, in the Pine parking lot on the mountain, between overly stoked snowboarders at Logan Pass last July, and definitely on the deck at the Northern bar downtown. I'd heard it often enough to have a sense of it, but not enough to respond authoritatively to a work email containing it. So, to Urban Dictionary I surfed.

Hi there WheelHeads! Happy Sunny Friday to ya!
We've been pretty busy this week at the WheelHouse and have been working diligently on our portfolio as we find the time. It's something that has been on our minds, long before we moved into the new office, and I'm happy to say that Lisa and I have started making some headway on a few of the projects we've done in the past and are still currently working on. It's hard to keep up when we consistently pump out so many projects!
We do display a lot of our work here on the website and on our Instagram account, but we are working on a cohesive layout for each, and every, individual project, that we can show off to clients, prospective clients, friends, and family.
