She Jumps

Pro Skiers Turned Philanthropists

Lately some pro skiers have been using their influence to start nonprofits. We take a look at She Jumps, an organization co-founded by pro skier Lynsey Dyer, that aims to get girls into the outdoors. She Jumps is hosting a fundraiser in Salt Lake City on January 21. We also check out Alpine Initiatives, started by a group of skiers, that helps developing countries in need.

A skier will see one thing right away when looking at the design for the 95-room luxury North Slope Ski Hotel—an actual ski slope. “I had never seen a structure before where the ski slope was incorporated into the structure,” Jantzen says. “It seemed like an interesting thing to explore from a design point. The aesthetics of the structure to me symbolically related to a snow-covered mountain and trees on the top, the trees being the wind turbines.”

The Ski Hotel of the Future

If Michael Jantzen’s vision is realized, the next all-in-one ski hotel will include solar panels, wind turbines, and a four-season slope that starts at the rooftop and brings skiers down to ground level. He shares the inspiration behind his concept North Slope Ski Hotel, a 95-room, eco-friendly luxury hotel. By Olivia Dwyer

Here are seven essential albums from seven different skiers.
