lindsey Vonn Silver G-P
Vonn leads another strong performance from the U.S. women, including three top 10 finishes, at the World Championship downhill in Garmisch-Partenkirchen.
After sitting out the super G and the slalom portion of the combined events earlier this week, Lindsey Vonn came back strong today to win a silver medal on the challenging Kandahar downhill course. Vonn, who suffered a concussion earlier this week, was the 20th skier to start today’s race and came within .44 seconds of the winner, Austria’s Elisabeth Goergl, who skied 16th. Vonn knocked her close friend and hometown favorite Maria Riesch, who raced immediately after Goergl, into third place. Goergl held onto the lead, making this her second gold of this World Championships.

Marker kastle binding recall

Marker and Kastle issued voluntary recalls for a handful of bindings due to a defect that could cause the skier to fall - though no injuries have been reported.

“Consumers should stop using recalled products immediately unless otherwise instructed,” according to a U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission press release.

The recall, which affects about 5,400 units, includes 2010-11 Marker and Kastle Twin Cam bindings with a max DIN setting of 12. Steel springs in the heel pieces could break and cause injuries.

Patagonia Snowshot
There's nothing we like more than a tricked-out jacket. One that looks good, too? Even better.

Holiday shopping can be toughest when hunting for brothers and dads. Cozy sweaters for mom, new boots for sisters, but the men in my life always seem to get books and music. The Patagonia Snowshot jacket erases those shopping-list blues. It's notable first for it's bright colors (blue, red), but really earns it's stripes when it comes to technology.

2011 Rossignol S110W
Rossi unveils the S110W Freeski, one of the first women’s skis with rocker and reverse sidecut.
Rossi was among the first to incorporate rocker into a women’s ski (Voodoo Pro BC110). Now it unveils the S110W Freeski, one of the first women’s skis with rocker and reverse sidecut. Hence its funny shape: The tapered tip and tail smear better in the deep. With roughly the same dynamics as the hugely popular S7 (No. 1 in Men’s Deep Snow), the S110W is not built for versatility; it’s built to float effortlessly through feet of velvety powder, where it handles speed so well you hardly notice the trees are a blur. For deep-snow purists, it can’t be beat (No. 1 in Overall Impression).

"It's about doing what I like to do best," said Miller. "It was never about the victories. Not at the beginning of my career and not now. I just love to ski, stay fit and encourage kids to get out and do the same."
