Or more precisely, help support the women of Icelantic skis – The Icey Ladies.
The Eye of the Condor is a unique competition in La Parva, Chile that combines freeskiing, photography and filming. Teams of six (filmer + photographer + four skiers) have five days to create video and photo submissions.
Team Icelantic won the film portion of the contest last year and are using Kickstarter to raise funds to defend their title in the 2013 contest next month. You can get involved for as little as ten bucks and feel good about supporting skiing, art and a kick-ass team of women!
Here is the link to the Kickstarter project that includes the winning 2012 video:

My favorite example of outerwear customization: Kaylin Richardson’s star pants! Kaylin confirmed the star came to be out of necessity, a patch to cover a hole in the knee. It is a brilliant fix – doesn’t look like a repair, rather a stylish little detail that emphasizes her stoked style.

These mitts arrived for me today! I first saw Astis handmade mittens last winter in Deer Valley and was smitten. After seeing them in action on Kaylin Richardson this fall in Warren Miller’s Flow State movie, there was no putting off the inevitable.
Astis mittens are inspired by Native American handicraft, specifically the leather and beadwork of the Cree Indians. Astis is the Cree word for mitten! All mittens are hand-stitched and beaded in the USA using the finest natural and performance materials. Though it is going to take a lot to get me out of my Hestra Ski Cross gloves, I am excited to ski with the gorgeous beading and fringe!
