Lynsey Dyer on “Real Jobs”, Jackson Hole, & Female Skiing

At 22 years old Lynsey Dyer found herself at the beginning of a promising career; having recently graduated with a graphic design degree from Montana State, she had won a competitive internship with a design firm in Bozeman. But something didn’t feel right, she wasn’t happy. And so she walked away from it and took decidedly different course - competing on the Freeride World Tour and she won. Ten years later Lynsey has stood atop many more podiums, been featured in movies, been on the cover of magazines, produced a woman’s only ski film and designed her own line of skis.

Had to laugh when it got to the “starving in Jackson Hole” part and the occurring epiphany we all need to justify staying LOL!  Great story Lynsey.

The reward of skiing off a virgin peak on the other side of the planet was exactly what he wanted to be doing. While him and fellow Salomon teammate Chris Rubens ultimately failed in their summit objective, they learned a handful of important lessons along the way. RELATED: Candide Drops

Tof Henry Shreds Some Sketchy Early Season Courmayeur Lines

It’s looking like the Chamonix-Mont Blanc area has seen a productive start to the season. While the Chamonix side access points may still be experiencing some technical difficulties, skiers have been getting after it on the southern side in Courmayeur, Italy. Mont Blanc legend Tof Henry shows us some of his recent adventures on Pointe Helbronner, which admittedly look mighty sketchy thanks to some less-than-stable snow. Remember, early season snowpack is weak and often more dangerous than
