For five days last week the top men and women ski racers in the world descended on Aspen for the 2017 FIS World Cup Finals. It was the first time in twenty years that the event was held in the U.S. and while Aspen has a long history of hosting World Cup races through the […]
The snow arrived Thursday and began to fall at a rate we don’t often see (or at least for too long) through sometime Saturday morning. When it was all said and done, the words historic or even biblical were being thrown around to describe the snowfall and skiing. If hard numbers matter, Aspen Mountain measured […]
Things are looking good. There’s a “major winter storm” heading our way, and if November was any indication, it could be a good year. Check out some photos from the early season skiing last month.
In need of a change of scenery after a hectic holiday stretch in Aspen, we went down to ski Silverton Mountain last weekend. They were a little light on snow, and the temps were frigid (-22F as we drove to the ski area Saturday morning), but Christy, Joey, and I still had a great time.
Last Friday morning, an email titled, “Welcome to the Caderettes” appeared in my inbox. Little did I know that a quick mention earlier in the week from our friend Rocky about participating in The Ajax Cup had actually come to fruition. I was now part of an all-girl ski racing team named after the team’s […]
The results are in from the OnTheSnow.com ski test. Over a few days last March, I was one of 13 lucky people tasked with evaluating next year’s skis for the website’s annual review. I say lucky because I think it’s a really cool opportunity to tryout the new gear, but it wasn’t without it’s challenges. […]
The 2012 OntheSnow.com ski test is a wrap. As one of the more widely visited online ski websites, with an equally popular annual ski review, it was an awesome opportunity to be one of the testers this year. Over the course of three days, about a dozen of us each skied and evaluated over 60 […]
The fastest women skiers in the world descended on Aspen this past weekend for the 2011 Women’s World Cup Winternational and the two days of racing were awesome to see. Actually, the whole weekend was a blast, starting with top-to-bottom skiing for Aspen’s opening day on Thanksgiving and going all the way through Sunday afternoon’s […]
Saturday’s bad weather made for classic storm day conditions up in Highland Bowl. The wind and low visibility kept the fair weather crowds away, and the snow only piled up deeper as the day progressed. Here’s a little video from Christy’s Bowl day. If it isn’t obvious, she’s a proud member of the camp that […]
Because I found myself with so many deep powder pics I decided that a third post from our huge storm was warranted– if it pushes my coverage from our big weekend into overkill, well, I’ll take that chance. But I’m also posting more from the weekend so I can pass along a big thanks to […]
