What Do You Think of Team USA’s Freeski Uniforms?

This week the U.S. freeskiing team unveiled their new uniforms for the upcoming Olympics in South Korea with a large press event in New York City. It was attended by Maddie Bowman and Devin Logan, along with Aaron Blunck. The North Face was again tasked with creating the kits for Team USA and the company worked closely with the athletes for the new look. Based on feedback from the Sochi games they wanted more muted color palette, which is reflected in the design along with other customization options.

The Sochi Olympics saw high temperatures during the finals and more could be expected with this edition of the games. So beyond the standard jackets and pants, the kits also includes vests, hoodies, overalls, t-shirts and more. The lettering is inspired by the NASA program. One could make the case that both astronauts and freeskiers are "space explorers" in their own right. 

I have to say I'm digging Team USA's style and nothing can be as bad as Burton's fake denim or Team Germany's god awful creations.

SINGAPORE — After tense, multilateral negotiations, U.S. President Donald Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong-Un reached an historic agreement Monday to go halfsies on an Epic Pass for the 2018/19 ski season.  The landmark agreement followed days of complex negotiations where both sides dug in their heels over a wide range of issues. Reports indicate the main point of contention revolved around whether to go with the full Epic Pass or to just go with one of the cheaper, local offerings.

Deep Powder Snow: The Philosophy of Dolores LaChapelle

— D.L. Three years into my quest to find a copy of Dolores LaChapelle’s , I was finally on the cusp of unearthing the elusive tome. My search had led me to Powell’s Books, in Portland, Oregon, and as I closed in on my quarry, I felt the weight of a multi-year journey begin to lift. Out of print since 1993, was — and is — hard to find, and over the years the volume has gained legendary status as one of the best philosophical/academic examinations of powder skiing ever written.
