In the past 20 years, backcountry skiing has evolved dramatically. For skier Michelle Parker who’s been dedicated to freeskiing since the age of 15, she’s witnessed that evolution throughout the course of her career. Now at the age of 31, she still feels like the only limit is her imagination. Her new web series, Originate, will follow her development as a skier as well as many constantly changing backcountry zones: Japan, British Columbia, and Alaska. Meanwhile, she’s joined by a few familiar faces, our very own Angel Collinson and Elyse Saugstad. The series just dropped and episode one is available now.
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?
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
