Daughters of Breckenridge – Celebrate women in skiing

Now on our Mountain Life playlist:

At Breckenridge, we celebrate our women skiers, and the progression they have brought to the ski industry as a whole. Pretty Faces, the first all-female ski movie production, tasked Breckenridge with creating a video highlighting women on our mountain. We knew we had a story to tell, as some of our most veteran ski patrollers are women, and all happened to be pregnant at the same time two seasons ago!

In “Daughters of Breckenridge,” we meet Tracy, Katie, Jamie and Kay; all members of the Breckenridge ski patrol. These tough-as-nails girls describe what is was like deciding to join the Breckenridge Ski Patrol, what it’s like being a woman in such a position, and how they’ve seen the ski industry progress in their time on the slopes. As stated above, all four of these patrollers had the experience of carrying a child while on patrol, and it just so happened to be at the same time!

Above all else, these patrollers hope to instill the idea that there are no barriers to what women can do, and not to be afraid to take chances, and put yourself outside of your comfort zone. If you have a passion and a dream, no goal in life is unobtainable. These woman hope their message will reach girls of all ages, and hope their stories will push others to never say “they can’t.”

Be sure to check out the incredible all-female ski movie, Pretty Faces.

This February, Breck is celebrating women in skiing with all new women’s ski programs. For more information, please visit Breckenridge.com

The American Downhiller: Episode 1 | Ski Racing

Now on our Mountain Life playlist:

What does it mean to call yourself an American Downhiller? Starting with Bill Johnson’s brash personality and unapologetic style in the mid 80s, Americans have always felt like they’ve had something to prove in Europe where the sport’s biggest names are immortalized by legions of fans and constant media attention – all while being able to escape back to home when things get to be too much.
The brotherhood of today’s American Downhillers pays homage to the spirit of legends like Johnson, Tommy Moe, and Daron Rahlves while also forging a new team identity that prioritizes cooperation and friendship that in recent years has allowed the team to flourish into one of the most formidable squads on the World Cup. Join us this winter as we take an inside look into just what makes the fastest Americans on two skis tick in our new web series: American Downhiller, presented by POC. via http://www.skiracing.com/

Snow Science: How Steep is Steep?

Now on our Mountain Life playlist:

Ever wonder how steep the slope is you’re skiing or riding? There’s a good chance it’s not even close to how steep you think it is. Meteorologist Joel Gratz breaks down why we constantly over estimate the steepness of a slope and why slopes between 30 and 45 degrees are prime to slide.

#ParkCity50 – “A Ski Town is Born”

Now on our Mountain Life playlist:

In the 1950’s, Park City was crumbling and boarded up, virtually abandoned after the mining boom of the early 20th century had passed. Three mine officers, however, had a bold idea to bring Park City back to life. Thanks to the help of a powerful ally in the White House, Park City began its transformation from ghost town to ski town.
