If you’re heading on a ski trip to Austria or Switzerland and you don’t want to spend the entire time carving groomers or getting lost on unmarked off-piste runs, pick up a new Freeride Map, which will show you where to find the steeps, powder, glaciers, and more.
Pro skier Julian Carr is a hustler. So far this season, he's skied in South America (back in August), Utah, Montana, and Switzerland, and pimped his headwear/apparel brand, Discrete, at trade shows in Denver, Salt Lake, and Munich, Germany. He just sent us these shots from his last few weeks in Europe.
