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.
Errol Kerr still laughs at jokes about lucky eggs, but he is all business when it comes to being the best in the world at skiercross. This week, he’s heading to Vancouver for his first visit to the Winter Olympic Games. By Olivia Dwyer
Every local has their favorite watering hole and every ski town has some great ones. While we can’t guarantee that a visit to one of these bars will give you that warm fuzzy, “I’m home, mom” feeling, we can say that if you’re looking for a warm place with cold beer to end up when your day is finished, these fine establishments should be at the top of your list. And if your favorite isn’t here, don’t be shy, let us know by posting your recommendations in the “comments” section below. —Tom Winter
