What I Did on my Summer Vacation

We checked in with pro skiers Erik Roner, Dash Longe, Sage Cattabriga-Alosa, and Grete Eliassen to see what they’ve been up to since the snow has stopped falling. They told us about their BASE jumping trips, Hawaii vacations, and mountain biking excursions.

An Olympian Made My Hat

Olympic skiers do more than work out and bash gates. Some make goggles, coffee, hats, and notecards. Introducing four Olympians to watch out for at the 2010 Vancouver Games—and the products and businesses they've launched to provide a little job security after the big show. By Liz Yokubison.

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? Maybe back in the pioneering days of pro skiing, but now, summer lifestyle includes anything from traveling to other parts of the world to ski, training for upcoming events, or perfecting other talents, like music, or making piñatas.

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.*

What's Lynsey Dyer Up To?

What do you love?

Yeah, we all love skiing. Obviously. That’s why we’re here. For the face shots and the glory and the self-congratulatory après stories. But it’s really the little things that make it.
