2015 Top Ski Towns: Jackson, Wyoming

The town of Jackson is known for its dismally poor male-to-female ratio during the winter. Guys, if you don’t like your 7:1 odds, well, too bad.

Jackson Hole is a pretty serious place. It starts with the ski area’s terrain, which
is gnarly enough that the management posts huge signs at the top and bottom of the Tram warning people to take it easy or they might get killed.

The Parent Whisperer

You can’t force a kid into being the next great thing, but you can do a lot of damage trying.

As an Olympic skier who now occupies the sidelines watching my own kids compete in the sport, I’m often assumed to have special insights about at least two things:

1. Who will be “the next Mikaela Shiffrin,” and

2. How, as a parent, to create “the next Mikaela Shiffrin.”

Why One Skier Went East for Better Skiing

Brian Mohr was tired of sketchy avalanche conditions, so he moved East where there’s a growing backcountry community.

­In the ski world, you often hear stories of East Coasters fleeing west to find the Promised Land. They leave behind their humble, icy pasts for extreme, powder-filled futures, and never look back. But what you don’t typically hear are the stories about people who do look back—people who went west only to find that their Promised Land, it turns out, is still in the east. Brian Mohr, a photographer and backcountry skier now living in Moretown, Vermont is one of those people.

Powder Shots and Family Ties

Raising a family and building a ski area are tough jobs—especially at the same time. The Pitchers pulled it off at Colorado’s powder keg, Wolf Creek.

An American Gladiator

Bode Miller, probably the best U.S. male racer ever to set a ski on edge, has announced that he won’t race this season. But he’s being canny about next year. Are you not entertained?
Bode Miller demonstrates his sole competition mode (Attack!) during a downhill training session in Portillo, Chile, in 2012.
