For three years running, Salomon has invited one lucky person on the trip of a lifetime to far-flung ski destinations around the world. The latest winner, 22-year-old Swede Lovisa Rosengren, picked Gulmarg, India as her destination. She expected a trip filled with a rich cultural experience, but little did she know that she was in for some of the deepest powder skiing of her life. A 3-meter storm rolled in, and unfortunately Rosengren was forced to ski it with Cody Townsend and Kalen Thorien on some of the most beautiful terrain in the world: the gateway to the Himalaya.
In typical gals night fashion, Donna Armstrong and Carole White got together to chat about their daughters over a couple of margs. Apparently their girls, Alex Armstrong and Ginny White, “rip the shit” out of two planks. Not surprisingly, like mother like daughter, it's clear that the passion for skiing is shared by the whole family. In fact, Carole was still powder skiing at five months pregnant, because motherhood is equally at place in the backcountry. RELATED: Michelle Parker's New Web
If for whatever reason skiing doesn't work out for him (though it sure looks like it will!), Andri Ragettli might want to pursue a career in Parkour. His pre-season workout involves a whole lot of creativity and athletic prowess, and most of those moves look like they translate to snow in one way or another. Who else wants to set up a course like this at their gym?
Pep Fujas may be one of the most understated skiers in the game, effortlessly styling technical pillow lines, throwing big tricks off natural airs, and making it all look so easy. Oh. And he’s been doing it longer than most. Last winter, he headed deep into the woods of B.C. and found a fresh angle to an old zone, doing the usual: blasting endless pillows. The skier takes some time to analyze the new zone and walks us through what it takes to make it all look easy. RELATED: Pillow Popping and
