Talking with the U.S. Ski Team

How to Ski: Catching Air

No one ever got hurt in the air, right? And with practice and planning, the landings will go just fine.

Remember when ski areas knocked down or roped off anything that got us a little light? Thankfully that mindset has changed. Not everyone is ready for the biggest booter in the park, but these days resorts are building features for all abilities, and we can all experience the feeling of flight.

Deer Valley Ski Lessons With Ole

Learn how to ski from the certified instructors at Deer Valley Resort.

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 Ski Stowe

Add a run on overlooked Lookout, and it’s a fearsome Front Five, not Four. The skiing doesn’t get any tougher anywhere in America.

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.
