We had a simple idea: Ask our freeski team members for their favorite ski story. The only limitation was that they had to tell it quickly. To our surprise, every story was very different from the next. These are the stories they shared. We hope their best memories get you excited for winter.
Cody Townsend, Chris Rubens and Greg Hill paid a recent visit to Salomon’s Annecy Design Center (ADC) to work with product developers on the ski equipment of the future. While they were here, we sat down for a discussion about testing prototypes, which QST skis they prefer, and answered questions from our live viewers about backcountry safety and more. Watch the interview below.
Every turn produced a face shot, enveloping my entire body in wave after wave of white. I felt the resistance of the snow against my chest in the middle of the turn as much as against my skis. The snow split into particles, allowing me to go deeper as I dug my edges in, before finally, reluctantly releasing the turn, only to bounce into the next.
