Airbags and Avalanche Safety

Airbags and Avalanche Safety

Some people have argued that an airbag is a false sense of security and could lead to skiers taking greater risks, but many industry experts disagree. By Brigid Mander

The idea for the airbag was developed in the 1970’s, by a German forest ranger.  The company he formed is today known as ABS, one of the three major producers of airbags, along with Mammut/Snowpulse and BCA.

Chairlift Interview: Jenn Berg

Chairlift Interview: Jenn Berg

We skied with Mountain Hardwear and Volkl athlete Jenn Berg in her natural habitat: the mountains of Utah. She reveals her favorite line, ingredients for a perfect day, and plans for the season.

Jenn Berg is sweet. Like, want-to-pinch-her-cheeks sweet. But her skiing is anything but. For example, she only rides men’s skis: the Volkl Kuro, taller than she is, at 185 cms long. And with appearances in multiple Warren Miller Entertainment films and a long career as a big mountain skier, Jenn Berg is one of the most recognizable names in the game. We rode a chairlift in Utah with her to talk about life, skiing, and indecision.

What does your season look like?
