Yes, there were other women in this slalom race but all I’m really caring about is Mikaela Shiffrin. World Champion. At seventeen. Totally amazing (though not surprising) and completely awesome!

Mikaela Shiffrin: Outside Magazine
What a pleasant surprise to open up the new Outside magazine and find a piece on Mikaela Shiffrin. The article is a nice primer on the ski racing phenom I call Magic Girl. The gorgeous photos by Chloe Crespi were shot near Burke Mountain Academy in East Burke, Vermont.

The First Post: J3 Junior Olympics – Sunday River, Maine
Seriously, how rad is this coach! Her day on the hill involves wielding power tools, lugging gates and fencing, working with athletes – all while skiing. And despite having a radio, Gerber knife and holster strapped to her — she still managed to accessorize and put together a personalized and inspired ensemble.
Also of note from this event, I watched wunderkind Mikaela Shiffrin win the Slalom – I now call her “Magic Girl”. It is going to be very fun to watch her career. . .
