How to Ski Powder

Ravaged by today’s surfacing-skimming fat skis, fresh snow tracks out quickly. Want your share? Bring fundamental groomer skills to your deep-snow game.

Wide skis are nothing new—they’ve been around for a long time. But today’s powder skis are different weapons, blending width, sidecut, and rocker in ways that make them amazingly good at what they do.

How to Get Ready for Ski Season

A new season, a fresh start, a great time to focus on the fundamentals. While you wait for snow, think about the building blocks of ripping technique.

At this time of year it’s easy to get excited about the latest gear. Whatever the terrain or conditions, skiing well means having the correct equipment for the job. Don’t bring a knife to a gunfight.

Unfortunately, effective technique isn’t something you can buy.

A Year of Magical Skiing

From Blah to Badass: Jo Piazza
From Blah to Badass: Jo Piazza
This skier's going from "blah" to "badass." Jo Piazza talks about learning to ski better.

I’m cold and I’m tired. Through puffs of a cigarette, my very French ski instructor is rattling off commands, but I can’t hear him through my hat and helmet. I nod anyway, and chunks of snow fall from my hair, matted there after a particularly rough spill on the last run.

I remember my first ski trip vividly: being bundled up like the Stay Puft Marshmallow Man, the sting of snow in my face the first time I fell doing a snowplow, the warmth of my dad’s arm wrapped protectively around me on my very first chairlift ride.

Clinic: Practice Makes Perfect

It's more than talent that makes Mikaela Shiffrin the best slalom racer in the world.

Much has been written about Mikaela Shiffrin’s “meteoric” rise to the top
 of the World Cup standings, but if you ask her, she might dispute the speed of her success. Despite her youth, Shiffrin’s rise has been a steady progression of struggle, improvement, and constant learning, based on her sheer determination and a solid work ethic.

Consistent with her development, Shiffrin’s skiing is precise, accurate, disciplined, and very much practiced. There’s a lot to be learned from studying photos like this one—much we should try to emulate in our own skiing.
