Dressing for Success

WINTER 2015 issue – She was narrowly pipped off the podium at Lake Louise’s opening World Cup downhill in December, but Owen Sound, Ontario’s Larisa Yurkiw was leading the fashion pack when she earned a thrilling 4th. High on the trend-o-metre this season are these practical and chic down-padded skirts that are warming some of the most toned tushes in skiing. Soignée yet savvy, after being sidelined for two seasons with a knee injury and being cut from the Canadian Alpine Ski Team in April 2013, Larisa struck out independently as Team Larisa—raising $150,000, heading to Sochi independently and now a result like this. “My coach was almost crying [about my 4th-place finish] yesterday and he’s a man’s man.” Funky skirts—they’re the new pants—are found in ski shops across Canada and online at sooski.ca
