How To Choose The Perfect Base Layers To Keep You Warm This Winter

Cold? I bet we can fix that. Staying warm in any condition — the office, the commute, a ski slope or in the outdoors — starts with a good base layer. Here’s how to find the best ones for your individual needs.


This Is The Most Beautiful Ski Run I've Ever Seen

Video: There have been other great alpine ski runs. More epic, difficult or far more dangerous, but this one, by the World Champion alpine skier Marcel Hirscher, is the prettiest and most colourful I’ve ever seen — and it’s environmentally friendly. They claim they only used 100 per cent natural materials to make the colour effects.


My First Time On The Slopes In 16 Years, I Skied The Backcountry 

I haven’t been skiing since the late ’90s. So, for my first time back, a trip out of bounds though the backcountry outside Jackson Hole Mountain Resort in the US was a safe, practical thing to do, right?


How To Survive An Avalanche

Want to have fun in the snow outside a ski resort? Then avalanches are going to be a huge risk. Thirty-five people were killed by them in the US last winter alone. But, with a little preparation, a few gadgets and some basic knowhow, they can be survivable.


Oh Great, The Robots Can Ski Now

Up until today, my plan for the robot takeover had been to flee to northern Canada, where deep snow and grizzly bears would keep me safe from Skynet. But not any more, because some smartarse decided to teach the droids to ski. Great work, guys.


A Behind-The-Scenes Look At The (Awesome) Life Of A Ski Photographer

Photographing backcountry skiing isn’t the easiest of jobs — mess up the shot, and you’ve got a lot of hiking to do again (not to mention the wasted powder). But it also has its benefits, like skiing endless laps of perfect snow.


Skiing Through This Impossibly Narrow Ridge Is Insane

Video: Holy cow. I don’t know how professional skier Cody Townsend pulled off this insane ski line that saw him pretty much drop straight down and then through the most narrow of cracks while skiing insanely fast, but he did it. The English language is not equipped to express how unbelievably mind-blowingly awesome his ski run was.


Watch A Skier Bomb Down Dark Slopes In A Glowing LED Suit

A few days ago, we brought you a video of two skiers wrapped in LED light rope. The effect was extraordinarily weird and cool and now GoPro has released the POV footage of the skiers themselves. Night skiing is always magical, but this goes beyond your average shadowy last run.


Skiing In Light Suits Looks Like The Most Spectacular Thing

Skiing? Fun. Night skiing? Even more fun. Night skiing in impossible bright light suits that transform your body into a glowing orb as you fly down the mountain? That has to be the most fun you can have. And, if it’s not, it’s definitely the coolest looking way to ski down a mountain.


An Impossibly Thin Heating Element Stops These Goggles From Fogging Up

There’s nothing like a thin layer of condensation on your ski goggles to ruin a perfectly good run down a hill covered in tantalizingly fresh powder. But active people get warm and sweat, and science says that cold moist air condensing on your goggles is inevitable. Unless you have a pair of these F-BOM goggles strapped to your face which sandwich an incredibly thin heating element between a pair of lenses to keep them clear all day long.
