Mountain Culture

Remembering Doug Coombs

Being the widow of a skiing legend isn’t easy. Emily Coombs is making it work.

Ten years ago this spring, Doug Coombs, one of American skiing’s most admired figures, died in a fall in one of the countless steep chutes at La Grave, France, the wild ski area where he lived with his wife, Emily, and their two-year-old son, David. Coombs, along with Chad VanderHam, died while working as mountain guides, the career Coombs had carved out after a career in ski films and extreme skiing competitions.

Game of Drones

Drones are coming to resorts, which want them for everything from vanity videos to rescue efforts. But don’t expect to fly your own drone on the hill soon.

Bruce McTavish Glimpsed the dawning of skiing’s drone era last season at Canada’s Big White resort. The 60-year-old Seattleite paid a new drone-video service to film himself and his fiancée skiing a run together. “It was a lot of fun,” McTavish says. “I’d always wanted to see what I look like skiing from above.”

Road Trip

Sometimes it takes a near death experience to teach us what really matters in life.

The last thing you want to hear while traveling at 80 mph on a barren interstate in rural Montana is an expletive indicating a loss of control. Yet that’s what my twin brother, Sean, gasped as we began to fishtail around a shaded, icy curve.

Shit.”

Socks That Make You Feel Good

You know where your farm-raised, fair-trade, free-range, organic, local, farm-to-table dinner is coming from. Your beer is local. Maybe your skis are even hand-made in the U.S. What’s next? Free-range, local, organic socks? Well, now that you mention it…

Talking with the U.S. Ski Team

SKI caught up with members of the U.S. Ski Team to find out about the season, how they overcome fear, and what it's like skiing with some of their ski heroes.

We hung out with some of the best ski racers in the country to find out more about them, some of their best (and worst) advice, favorite ski towns, and embarassing moments.

On Patrol

Big Sky ironman Phil Capi served in WWII, was shot down during the Korean War, may have been a spy, and has patrolled since the 1960s. Oh, and he’s scratching 90 years old.

A SoCal Culture Club

Part Vegas, part skatepark, the most diverse ski destination in North America just might hold the secret to skiing’s future. Welcome to California’s Big Bear Mountain Resorts.

All Grown Up Now

What would you do if your kids didn't want to ski on a family ski vacation?

“Mom, I only want to ski half-day. I don’t like skiing full-day.”
