In Golden, British Columbia, there is a group of girls called the Rad Boob Club. Reacting to the exclusivity of the unofficial Rad Dude Club, these ladies can be found out skiing the best lines in B.C. Recently, this group of skier chicks created the Rad Boob Ski Calendar to raise funds for the Rethink Breast Cancer Foundation. Available for $20 online, the 12-month photo gallery features athletes such as Ingrid Backstrom, Grete Eliassen, and Lynsey Dyer. And sorry fellas, but there’s no nudity—just ski action and lifestyle shots.

Whistler based freelance writer, skier, and calendar designer, Holly Walker felt privileged to be a part of the project. “I had a stroke last winter, which provided me with a lot of free time on my hands,” Walker says. “I couldn’t think of a better way to spend my time, than to get back into graphic design and help the girls out.”

This winter the girls of the calendar will be touring to different ski resorts to sell their product and pass out information on breast cancer awareness. Check out the website [radboob.com] and find more information on Rethink Breast Cancer awareness foundation [rethinkbreastcancer.com].

Here is a list of all the girls featured in the calendar:
