Top Five Fridays - January 20, 2017

This week, we bring you another mixed bag of news from the world of skiing. On the bright side, we're excited to share that Lindsey Vonn returned to competition this week, despite her lingering injury. Plus, there's a new ski/snowshoe hybrid available which may (or may not) inspire new technologies in the touring industry! Unfortunately though, it wasn't all good news as we also have avalanches, fraud, and ski death statistics to discuss. But don't worry, after you read through the doom and gloom we've got some great clips to cheer you back up. Find out what happened in skiing this week in this edition of Top Five Fridays!

2017 Atomic Vantage 85 CTI Review: Stiff on Torsion, Light on Weight

Often overlooked by those checking out the Atomic Vantage series, the Vantage 85 CTI is the skinniest of the Vantage siblings. Checking in with a waist width of 85mm, the Vantage 85 CTI is a lightweight, nimble, and surprisingly powerful all mountain ski. Using Atomic's CTI carbon mesh, this ski achieves something few others in its class can claim: torsional rigidity alongside its light weight. A few staff members took these skis out for a spin over the last couple of weeks, and now we bring to you our complete review of the 2017 Atomic 85 CTI skis. Check it out!

Top Five Fridays - January 13, 2017

Let's not beat around the bush here: the highlight of this week's ski news has to be the ridiculous snow storms that have brought historic amounts of snow to the Sierra and Rocky Mountains. Western resorts have received so much snow over the past 7+ days, that it leads us to ask, "is there such a thing as too much snow?" Plus, we also bring you news from Austria where Lindsey Vonn will make her return to ski racing this weekend- something that might be impossible in another 30 years. Plus, we bring you a bit of news from Whistler Blackcomb and use the theme of "money" to tie it into the edit of the week. Find out all you need to know in this week's Top Five Friday!

Feeder Hill Highlights: Wachusett Mountain, MA

This week, our Feed Hill Highlights series continues with our spotlight of Wachusett Mountain in Princeton, MA. Situated roughly an hour away from three sizable metropolises, this feeder hill is one of the closest ski areas to nearly 8 million urban dwelling skiers. Mix that fact with great terrain, a strong race scene, and a family friendly atmosphere and you'll quickly realize that Wachusett isn't just another East Coast feeder hill, it's prototypical of the term itself. Needless to say, we're extremely excited to present, "Feeder Hill Highlight: Wachusett." Enjoy!
