Is the best Utah powder forecaster bobbing in the Pacific Ocean 3,000 miles away?
You’ve stalked the weather forecast for weeks, hoping and praying that you can call in “sick” on the eve of the next big storm. But 10-day forecasts are notoriously unreliable, and when Alta reports 14 inches on a random Tuesday, you’re stuck in a cubicle with back-to-back meetings. Forget the local meteorologist; you need a snowy crystal ball that can predict when the flakes will pile up well before they pile up.
Shiffrin wins the slalom—and the hearts of East Coast race fans; Killington makes it look easy as spectators turn out in force.
Mikaela Shiffrin, the U.S. Ski Team ace, doubled down on the perfect Blackjack hand on Sunday, nailing her 21st World Cup slalom win as a 21-year-old. With the victory, Shiffrin continues her remarkable early season, building on her lead in the slalom standings—along with her lead in the overall standings. With a win margin of a full .73 seconds, she fired up an already raucous crowd on Sunday, as the World Cup made a triumphant return to the East Coast over the weekend.
Straight dad, lesbian daughter, and the nation’s biggest, best Gay Ski Week. Not entirely traditional. Just the perfect family ski trip.
Meet my daughter Lilly: bright, beautiful, brimming with dreams and confidence, a little moody, sarcastically funny. She throws herself at life with an admirable recklessness that worries a parent sometimes. Her long blond hair is often messy, like her room at home always was. Her singing voice is beautiful...got that from her mom. She’s a ripping skier; or was when she was little and could be again if she weren’t trapped in D.C., where she just graduated from college. And always there were boys hanging around. There still are. Poor boys.
