I’m late in posting this, but Hartzy was featured in this Yahoo Travel video about Afghanistan. She’s just onscreen for a few seconds here and there, but those glimpses are 100% Hartz – bouncing around with the reporter, sitting cross-legged on top of a mountain, etc. She’s basically a human Tigger with an interest in international development and backcountry skiiing.
The Afghan Ski Challenge aims to promote development in the Bamyan Province, and Hartz was there with the Aga Khan Foundation. When I saw The New York Times’ article last year on the ski race, I wrote to Hartz and asked her if it was the same thing. Her response: yup, and I’m standing just out of the frame of those photos. Pretty neat.
