Log: A young woman returns to the United States, and more specifically her small town ski area where she grew up, to find the government in control has made snowboarding and skiing illegal. In defiance, she finds her grandfather's snowboard and boots and in the middle of a cold, clear night hikes the abandoned ski lift and shreds a beautiful long thin line to the bottom. The local government agentsx are called and in the morning investigate who has violated this government order and arrest her.

I wrote this short story in 1971 and it was published by a small literary press then to protest the rise the Nixonian Fascism. I adapted it to a short screen play in light of the rise of the Trumpian Fascism.
