Lyft launches ski town rideshare
For all of the ski pilgrims too lazy to learn the public bus schedule this season, Lyft is picking up the slack, launching a new ride for skiers in mountain towns like Vail, Aspen, Telluride, and Winter Park. Dubbed "Ski Rack Mode," the new rideshare offers ski storage or roof racks along with a winter-ready vehicle to get you from your offer-priced AirBnB to first (or third) chair without having to fight over a single B-lot parking spot. Ride options include 1996 Subaru Outbacks, rusted out Tacomas, and Uncle Tito's Taco Bus.
Kim Boberg takes his booster shot
'Lil' Kim Boberg reaches into his big bag of tricks to bring us a Swedish treat right before the holidays. Per usual, the Up North Boys crush it from the park to the trees and beyond, exploring the offerings around Älvdalen, Sweden. With some of the best in ski cinema headed to Colorado for the Powder Awards this week (get your tickets here), here is a little taste of some goodness that didn't even make the cut.
Lindsey Vonn injured, hopes for Olympic recovery
The winningest woman in U.S. Ski Team history suffered a major setback ahead of the 2018 Winter Games, injuring her back and pulling out of the World Cup Super G in St. Mortiz. The 33-year-old sat out the rest of the race and could potentially miss more on-snow time to prepare for the Olympics in South Korea this February.
A few vocal conservatives took time out of their busy day to label the injury 'karma' for Vonn refusing an invitation to the White House. Shortly after, a 2-year-old responded with, "Hey, wait a minute, that doesn't make any sense."
