Ken Castle is the former outdoors editor of the San Francisco Chronicle and the San Jose Mercury News, and has enjoyed a 30-year career as a writer, photographer, and editor for San Francisco Bay Area newspapers. He is a longtime contributing editor of Ski Magazine, and his articles have also appeared in Outside, Conde Nast Traveler, Four Seasons, and Travel-Holiday. His travels have taken him to six continents, from the jungles of the Amazon to the snowy peaks of the Swiss Alps. Closer to home, he has spent three decades getting to know the Lake Tahoe region, traveling there regularly to ski and fish, among many other pursuits. In 1979, as editor of the outdoors section of the San Jose Mercury News, Castle collaborated with the University of California at Davis to conduct an underwater research project at Lake Tahoe. Using a three-person mini-sub, the team reached depths of up to 1,000 feet during this landmark exploration of the world's 10th deepest lake. The endeavor garnered national and international attention and was featured in National Geographic magazine. Castle is currently president of International Recreation Resources, a travel- and research-oriented marketing and consulting firm based in Burlingame, California.
