VIDEO: Meet the ultimate weekend warrior
Weekend warrioring is a respected craft in the ski world, but there are very few doing it like Neil Williman. By week, the Kiwi works an engineering job in London, but by weekend, thanks to a direct flight, he lets his freeski flag fly near Innsbruck, Austria. Quite the double. Here is a look at the ultimate weekend warrior, and enough damn fine skiing to give us all hope.
A-Basin offering $20 off tickets for carpoolers
Grab your friends and get up to Arapahoe Basin, as the 'other' Colorado resort is offering $20 off lift tickets for skiers willing to share their ride to the mountain (plus prime parking on the weekends). A-Basin is already one of the cheaper day tickets in town, and I have to think this incentive more than sweetens the pot. We might not save the world every day, but give us a discount and we will sure as heck try.
UPDATE: California has more snow than you
Snow to the tune of 8 feet plus has fallen at several California resorts. In fact, here's a live update from the hysteria at Mammoth right now.
Sun Valley and Snowbasin swallowed by Epic
Vail Resorts took two steps closer to world domination this week, adding Sun Valley and Snowbasin to its stacked roster for the 2019-2020. It's important to note that technically each of the resorts will retain its soul, as they will continue to be 100-percent independently owned and operated. Silver linings, all around.
