What I Learned: Women's Freeride Ski Camp

Self-doubt can be paralyzing—or it can be empowering.

In my experience, chutes always look their steepest, narrowest, and scariest from above. So I’m caught off guard by the paralyzing fear that grips me when I’m standing nearly a quarter-mile away from La Parva’s La Chiminea. The tributary cut from the Andean rock walls looks ominous. Catch an edge in there and you’re toast. Are those tears pooling in the foam liner of my goggles? What is wrong with me?

Summer Skiing South of the Border

Don’t put your skis away just yet, there’s still plenty of skiing.

Although recent storms around the country have improved skiing conditions considerably, this season as a whole has been one of the toughest in decades. Thanks for nothing, La Nina.

We certainly won’t blame you for pulling out the bicycles, the golf clubs and the kayaks—heck, that’s what we did this weekend as temperatures in Boulder reached the upper 70s—but don’t write this year off as a wash just yet. There’s no correlation between winter weather patterns in the Northern Hemisphere and those below the Equator, which means this might be the year to pack your bags and head south.
