Vote Now! Ski Town Hair Down


For years we have watched professional skiers Johnny Collinson, Nick McNutt, Julian Carr, Sage Cattabriga-Alosa, Colter Hinchliffe, Marcus Caston, Cody Townsend, and Todd Ligare push the limits of time, space, and powder. What these skiers do is not easy. They do not achieve that level of athleticism, and the eternal glory it brings, by chance. It takes talent and drive to become a professional skier—but more than anything, it takes great hair.

The logical evolution of the event formerly known as the Ski Town Throwdown, the first annual Ski Town Hair Down will give the above-mentioned eight hairy hopefuls the chance to prove themselves in the most important competition in skiing. Who will become the first ever Hair Down champion? You decide.

Final results: Marcus Caston wins.

  • WINNER: Marcus Caston

    Age: 27
    Who I hope to beat:  I've never even heard of the other guys.
    Upcoming projects:  Warren Miller's “Here, There, and Everywhere,” and I’ll be releasing two personal projects this fall from Snowbird and Iceland.
    Hair care routine:  Why don't you ask me about my pre-ski routine? I'm an athlete, damn it. Granted, a beautiful one, but still a damn athlete! You wouldn't ask Angel Collinson about her hair routine.
    How my hair helps me ski:  The ancient Chinese believed that long hair gave you a better feeling for the snow. And I do have pretty good feeling on the snow.

    Hair care routine:  Where to start? Shampoo, condition, brush, manicure, pedicure, foundation, concealer, mascara, contouring. All that stuff is crucial to good hair.
    How my hair helps me ski:  It's the most effective when it flies around, covers my head cam, and gets in my mouth.
    Hair last washed:  I'm on a pretty detailed program right now. Three sets of shampoo, 10-12 reps of brushing, two sets of conditioner, then a 24-hour rest. I'm really seeing progress. Can't wait to share with fans.
    Favorite hair product:  You think I’d let that secret out? Never.

    Hair care routine:  I cut it before ski season and not again until after ski season, as a rule.
    How my hair helps me ski:  My hair is with me the whole ski season and that's more than I can say about alot of people and things and even certain body parts (toe nails, teeth, blood, sweat, and tears).
