Strategy:
Mander comes from long Island and didn’t ski as a kid. But she went to school in Colorado and learned to ski from some locals at Arapahoe Basin. Three winters in B.C. refined her style (i.e., doesn’t turn much, skis fast, can live on 87 cents a day, work four months a year, and ski the rest). Now, she tries to only work inflight on airplanes, and writes about skiing for several publications and websites. On some days, you might see her wearing a purple one-piece and noodling down Corbet’s Couloir.
