Chasing down Manuel Osborne-Paradis

Sochi 2014 by Jim Morris in Fall 2013 issue Risk versus reward. It’s something we all contemplate, whether it’s a complicated business venture or simply deciding if the chance of getting a speeding ticket makes it worth driving that little bit faster. Often the greater the risk, the bigger the reward—but the penalty for failure … More »

The new world of freeriding

by Tobias c. van Veen  from Fall 2012 issue This season (and may it be blessed) will see the long-awaited merger of the Freeride World Tour (herein called the FWT) with the Freeskiing World Tour (herein now part of the Freeride World Tour) what does this mean, you ask? For starters, it means bigger audiences … More »

Skiing’s gladiators

  Skier cross has a strange and storied history in not only the sport of skiing, but in the evolution of skiing itself. The dark roots of skier cross involve nothing more or less than corralling your so-called friends (of all ages), heading to the pinnacle of your local hill and pointing it down in a no-holds-barred race to the bottom. by … More »

Taking FIS to Task

by tobias c. van Veen from the Fall 2011 issue. The first and only time I saw Jean-Luc Brassard in competition was at the closing finale of the 2002 World Cup Freestyle on Blackcomb. As I feasted on the media tent’s prawns and wine, the Lillehammer legend laid down a cartilage-destroying performance. Sure, he was no longer on top, but he … More »

The Whistler Cup’s Killer Kinder

no driver’s licence required by tobias c. van Veen from the Buyer’s Guide 2012 issue. With Lady Gaga cranked from a stereo pitched precariously in the snowbank, a swarm of the spandex crowd performs the pre-race rituals: stretching, swinging legs around, some pantomime focus visualization, nervous chatter and, of course, a good deal of high-pitched … More »

Nice n’ icy please

from Fall 2009 Canada is best known as the land of hockey, but at the Winter Olympics there’s another indisputable marquee event—the downhill alpine race. And Canadians like their speed courses to live up to the description of being lightning fast. In October, four full months before the 2010 Vancouver Games open, the snow cannons … More »

Brydon’s goal is golden

from Travel Guide 2010 issue This time, Emily Brydon says, it will be different. With the 2010 Olympic Games in her home province, in what will likely be her last year of high-performance skiing, there’s no reason to hold back. She’ll be skiing toward daylight, toward a future that probably won’t include ski racing, hopefully … More »

Hoping for the big backyard win

From Buyer’s Guide 2010 Twice Britt Janyk has wanted to storm the Olympic battlements and twice she has not been part of the team. But in February the Olympics are coming to Britt’s home hill, to Whistler, and with national team slalom-skiing brother Michael, she hopes to show the world that this is her mountain … More »

Forsyth Says Farewell

It put a damper on the good news that Austrian Patrick Riml will take over as manager of the Canadian women’s alpine team. Riml coached the U.S. Europa and World Cup teams for seven years, guiding Julia Mancuso to Olympic gold in the giant slalom in Turin and Lindsey Vonn to the overall and downhill … More »
