Remember that scene from Napoleon Dynamite when Grandma breaks her coccyx during a spill at the dunes? That happened because she was out getting after it. Well, Skiing would like to honor all of the moms and grandmas out there who still rip—on skis or elsewhere. You—YOU, dear reader—could win your mom a pair of Dynafit women's skis, an Arc'Teryx backpack, or a Powderhorn jacket. It's easy. Simply share pictures of your mom, preferably in action, with us via Instagram using #skiingmagmoms. Skiing's Instagram handle is skiing_magazine.

Never used Instagram before? Go to, download the app to your smartphone, create an account, upload your mama pix, and tag them with #skiingmagmom in the comment section underneath. Then, make sure you find Skiing Magazine using the handle skiing_magazine and follow us.
