Burke is a ski racing hill. Lucky for me, I love all that goes along with that – including ski racing fashion. Spyder Julia Mancuso race suit featuring trail map graphics of Squaw Valley, her home mountain.
March 12, 1983 Press Photo: VAIL, COLO: USA’s Tamara McKinney takes a gate during the first run of Women’s World Cup Giant Slalom. McKinney had the second best time of 1:11:59, only 0.01 second behind teammate Cindy Nelson. McKinney is attempting to become the first American woman to win the overall World Cup Championship.

Tamara’s signature bunny hat was made by her sister who sells specialty knit goods through her Kentucky-based company, Ouisha.
With Mikaela Shiffrin’s win at Flachau yesterday, she has racked up seven World Cup slalom wins – quickly gaining on Tamara McKinney’s nine victories, the record for any American woman in slalom.
Tamara McKinney was my first ski hero. Her small stature but aggressive style coupled with her girl-next-door image and trusty Rossignol skis offered a strong, female role model in the sport. Her racing accomplishments include being the first American woman to win the World Cup overall title, two Giant Slalom titles, a Slalom title, multiple World Championship medals and a long list of career wins and podiums. She is a legend without question.
My husband and I have been devout followers of Mikaela Shiffrin — her stunning talent and rapid ascent — since we watched her win the slalom at the 2010 J-III Junior Olympics when she was 15. We had heard the hype but it wasn’t until we witnessed her runs that we truly grasped what this young girl could mean to the world of ski racing. Amazed by her performance, I began referring to her as “Magic Girl”. I was thrilled to be present to watch her win the slalom title at the World Championships in Schladming, Austria last winter.
So, with that, it is bittersweet for me to watch Mikaela gain on Tamara’s slalom record in record time!

2/3/1974 Press Photo: The alpine ski world championships in St. Moritz have to change their program for the downhill race for men had to be postponed, the bad weather did not allow the necessary pre-race training on the run. So these fast men on their narrow woods have to wait for sun. Top favorite Roland Collombin (right) and his friend Philippe Roux bring their skis for waxing to Swiss wax-expert Paul Berlinger (left).
Tonight I arrived home to the smell of ski wax – yes! I consider myself fortunate that my husband tunes a mean ski. We probably have another week or two until we are on snow but our skis are ready!

I am headed to East Burke, Vermont this weekend to ride Kingdom Trails. Here are a couple vintage nuggets from the home of Burke Mountain Academy.
JC de Castelbajac for Rossignol as seen at ISPO, January 2012.
I enjoyed watching this broadcasting duo at the Alpine World Championships in Schladming, Austria. Each day they would come dressed in exquisite complementary ensembles of luxury outerwear. The wild snow tiger theme shown here as they interview Julia Mancuso is by Jean-Charles de Castelbajac for Rossignol – styles I had seen the winter prior at the ISPO trade show but never expected to have the good fortune to see on snow!
A dramatic overhaul to what had been sedate gray and black graphics, this generation of the 4S slalom ski ushered in the distinctive look of green – or teal green as in my memory – and in my opinion, became an icon of its era. The clean white of the smooth, fast and fun 3G emphasized the graphic impact of this collection.
Here a few shots from the February 2013 ISPO trade show in Munich, Germany — a little preview of Winter 2013/14 apparel.
Luis Trenker: Classic alpine style reinterpreted in gorgeous combinations of natural and synthetic fabrics.
xAlmrausch: Very sweet with traditional alpine motifs.
Ortovox: Color block base layer. Ortovox apparel and pack lines are standouts of clean design and crisp coloration.
Black Yak: By far, the most original and thought provoking apparel collection at the show. Unique and sophisticated silhouettes, patterning, colors and material combinations. Serious inspiration!
