We’ve had some friendly debate at Ski.com about whether or not our staffers would actually stand on the edge and drop in. We know of a few […]

The  new year has brought new snow for the Alps.

U.S. Ski Team Olympic Hopefuls 

Lindsey Vonn Women's Winternational

Although it’s still remains unclear if  the U.S. Ski Team’s top alpine racer Lindsey Vonn, 29, of Vail, Colo., who boasts 17 World Cup globes, will be able to compete in the Olympics after sustaining yet another knee injury while training at Copper Mountain, the team has a full roster of competitors (both veteran and […]

U.S. Freeskiing Olympic Hopefuls 

The upcoming Winter Olympic games marks the first time that Freeskiing—not to be confused with Freestyle—is a sanctioned sport. Like Snowboarding, Freeskiing will include Halfpipe and Slopestyle events. If you’ve followed the X Games or the Dew Tour events over the years, you’re sure to see some familiar faces on prime time broadcast of the […]

U.S. Snowboarding Olympic Hopefuls 

We can’t really mention the U.S. Snowboarding Team without mentioning the luminary Shaun White. Riding out of Lake Tahoe’s Northstar, Shaun has been competing in snowboarding in the Olympics and other world-class events for longer than some of his newer competitors have been snowboarding. And he’s really still that good. Consistently landing gravity- and mind-defying […]

A few of our favorite ski resorts to visit during the holidays 

Whistler Skiing Santa

Skiing or snowboarding is an excellent way to spend your holiday vacation — especially this year thanks to a lot of early season snow in both the Western U.S. and Europe. The Northeast has also just received some significant snowfall. Just about every ski resort goes out of their way to make the holidays a special […]

Many Western ski resorts see more than a foot of snow

Generally speaking, December isn’t known to be a particularly snowy winter month, especially when compared to February or March, but we’re overjoyed that it’s shaping up to be just that. If you have a Rocky Mountain holiday ski vacation planned, or are considering on booking one (check out our deals), the odds of it being […]

Europe ski resorts see early season snowfall, too 

Zermatt Gandegglift

We just can’t stop smiling over here at the Ski.com offices. The good news just keeping pouring in. There’s  even more early season snowfall and resort openings, but this time it’s across the pond. Our neighbors in Europe have also been experiencing heavy autumn snow storms. Higher Alpine ski areas such as Verbier, Zermatt, Val Thorens, […]
