Other People's Headphones: Seven Albums from Seven Skiers

There’s an old saying that writing about music is like dancing about architecture. But we can’t help it. Because if you’re a skier, you depend on music. Lean on it. Whether it’s in the morning on the way to the hill, skiing to it, or seeing a live show when you’re done, music is inextricably linked to our lives. Here are seven essential albums from seven different skiers.

Tim Durtschi, an Atomic athlete and founder of Saga Outerwear, who secured third place at this year’s Red Bull Linecatcher, had a successful season. But just because the snow is bound to stop falling this spring, doesn’t mean Durtschi stops skiing. “I am coaching at Alyeska Summer Camp in Girdwood, Alaska,” says the Bend, Oregon, resident of his summer plans. “Hood and Whistler are hotspots for summer skiing, but Alyeska has been doing this camp for over 10 years and I have been a part of it since I was a kid.  I love the vibe at this camp, mostly local Alaskans and friends I grew up with, and their park is sick. Plus, there is still a ton of snow in June.”  Check out his personal blog and the Saga Outerwear site (http://www.sagaouterwear.com/) for updates on Durtschi’s summer ski camp adventures. 

Summer With the Pros

Pro skiers spend their summers pounding nails or waitressing, right?

Who Earns What?

It's taboo to ask how much others make. So we asked. Here's how much (or how little) some ski-industry professionals are making.*

The Game of G.N.A.R: Candidate Interviews

Conceived by Rob Gaffney and Shane McConkey, Squaw Valley is currently holding a contest to determine what skier can win the game of GNAR (Gaffney's Numerical Assessment of Radness), which involves rowdy skiing, cliff hucking, and embarrassing acts (like skiing naked). Griffin Post gives us the first update on the contest.

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.
