Dancing Through the Deep: How to Ski Powder

Nov. 13th 2014

It’s easy to see why some skiers will go to the ends of the earth for over-the-head powder. Skiing really, really deep powder is in the running for the most fun and sensory-rich experience a person can have: the bounce of skis off the snow; the hiss of the skis slicing through fluff; the kaleidoscope of crystals exploding in your vision. And the best part is that with modern skis, boots and education, this white heaven is accessible to anyone with solid intermediate skills.

The Freedom is Back in the Hills

Nov. 5th 2014

SCARPA’s all-mountain, hard-charging freeride ski boot is back, blending strength and efficiency for a sophisticated performance package. Designed with big mountain pro Chris Davenport, SCARPA’s Freedom SL boots were developed with pivotal features for touring and alpine performance, superior range of cuff motion and weight, and an innovative DIN/Tech fitting sole system. While the male version of the boot has safely established itself in the award-winning categories of several publications, the lady SL’s have also just won Editor’s Pick from Freeskier, as well as a 2015 Skier’s Choice from Powder.

6 Reasons Why Skiing with Girls Rules

Oct. 29th 2014

The backcountry isn’t a place reserved solely for testosterone. While the current demographics of the sport’s participants are slanted in favor of the boys, a day in the hills without Y chromosomes offers a completely different, yet totally enriching, experience. And thanks to products like the Freedom SL and the Gea RS, girls have never had better gear for getting out there. Here are some of the best aspects of skiing with the gals according to our athletes Annelise Loevlie, Rebecca Selig, and Shaun Raskin. You better believe that farts are involved.
