U.S. speed skier Laurenne Ross is back on snow just six months after
her brutal crash.
Congratulations! Welcome to the World Cup Dads Club, Felix!
She’s forging her own path on the World Cup.
Lindsey is feeling optimistic about her proposal to race the men in 2018-19!
Welcome to the World Cup family, Maude! 💕
Do you want to be fit like Mitch? Now, you can work out like her!
Today, I'm officially launching my very own ski fitness website called Alpine Strength!! Woah, lots of work was put into this to get it ready for you in time for the ski season. About 2 years ago, the Canadian Women's Ski Team hired @alejohervas who is both a ski coach and a fitness trainer. He has brought to our team a new vision of ski specific movements. As soon as I felt the difference on the ski slopes, I knew I had to share this incredible knowledge with the ski world! I was lucky enough that he agreed to partner up with me to write training programs for ALL skiers, from the recreational skier all the way up to the full on ski racer. My goal with this venture is to share the love. We have created programs for you complimented with instructional videos, voice overs, tips, you will see it's very complete and user-friendly. Starting right now, you can pre-order your training program for a 10% discount. Ski racers, your programs are available as early as October 1st!! Act quick! Recreational skiers, you have until November 1st to enjoy your 10% off. Now, please take 2 mins to go check out the website at: https://www.alpinestrength.com/en_US/ (link in bio) or follow us on Instagram at @alpinestrength #skifitness #alpinestrength #getfitwithmitch 📷 @anna_goody
Heading into the week in beast mode like Leif.
With music like this, ballet skiing could make a comeback, don’t you think?
Happy Birthday, Aleksander!
It’s a bird! It’s a plane! No, it’s Lindsey!

Nature’s way of dyeing the course?
Richard from Michigan loves Ski Racing. Can you tell? He has a collection of signed magazine covers at home. “At the World Championships in 2015, I had Lindsey Vonn sign several at one time,” he said. “She smiled and had an interesting look on her face when I had one I’ve been holding on to since 2004.”
Retired athletes still train hard.
Is the road to PyeongChang called Sesame Street?
Who is ready to see Ted Ligety back on the White Circus? It’s been too long.
He didn’t win the bet, but it still looks like Marcus had a good time!
How long until FIS tests this on the World Cup? 😉
Happy Birthday, Fritz Dopfer!
Monday is here again?! Victor is flipping out about it.
The good news is that Lindsey’s ready to get back on snow. The bad news? We’re not sure if she was actually able to make it to the chairlift.
😁 This footie is getting us psyched for the season!😁
Ah, the sweet taste of summer travel! 🍦

It can be tough to be in the spotlight all the time, and Lindsey Vonn is no stranger to those challenges. This week, she responds to rumors of a budding relationship with football star Aaron Rodgers (despite the fact that she was just seen at
The ESPYs with boyfriend Kenan Smith.) For the record, she says that she and Rodgers are just friends.
👶🏻Congratulations on your second child, Marlies and Benni!👶🏻

Look who is back on snow!
Who else is ready for summer?
When Monday is around the corner, and you’re not interested in starting a new week.
(Glad you’re okay, Jackie!)
Spring may be here, and summer around the corner, but we know you’ll find ways to ski with or without snow.
We can’t wait to watch you battle for it again next season!
Big congrats to Lindsey Vonn on her second-place finish in the World Cup Finals downhill!
It’s good to see Lara Gut in good spirits!

Racing at World Champs is not about medals for this skier.
When you’re starstruck by your own teammate…
True love wins. Happy Valentine’s Day!
Who won this race at World Champs?
Love (and fog) was in the air at the St. Moritz men’s downhill.
Now that’s how you celebrate dreams coming true.
Do you think some of Bode Miller’s speed rubbed off on these guys as they trained where he grew up?
Looks like being injured has some perks.
Don’t worry! She’ll be back for World Champs!
Meet NorAm circuit standout, Nick Krause.
#meetbingsfam . This guy's a legend. Earlier this week another athlete trained with us, and when I asked if he enjoyed it, he responded, “Yeah man, any session with Nick is awesome.” And I’m pretty sure every human who knows Nick feels the same. . Nick Krause [@krausesauce] grew up in Northborough, MA, skiing at Wachusett Mountain [@wachusettmtn], his favorite place to ski. He battled through 5 surgeries in a 2-year span to get to where he is now, which is the land of absolutely carving. Nick's notorious for his abstract emoji-use (now a language of its own), his breathtaking falsetto singing [“Who’s the best singer on the team?” “Great question…I am the best, that’s really all there is to it.”], and his unmatched ability to rack up hours of sleep, rivaling any bear in hibernation. But perhaps his greatest achievement [by his own account] came on the fateful day of January 24, when Nick made the coveted @slalomtokyodrift highlight reel, as he nearly won a slalom run, but instead chose the self-sacrificing route and allowed someone else to win by straddling the very last gate. . In all seriousness, Nick is a stinking gift of a guy. He can get along with absolutely anyone, and has an uncanny ability to make everyone feel welcome. He’s easy-going and hilarious, and has the personality to say literally anything and make it funny. When Nick’s around, you’re guaranteed a laugh. When it’s time to work, Nick works hard, and when it’s time to chill, Nick chills hard. Which is exactly why, if he could be any animal, he chose the pug. Or the sloth. Because they’re “some of the biggest chillers out there.” Nick’s also a phenomenal all-around athlete. You should see this man play volleyball, wallyball, spike ball, soccer…all the important sports, you name it. . Growing up, Nick wanted to be Otto Rocket more than any other cartoon character. But as of late, he’s come to his senses: “Now I realize he was kind of a douche…[but I’d] maybe still want to be Otto Rocket. Kid sends.” When asked about the greatest 90s boy band, he responded without hesitation. “Blink-182. Punk Rock will never die.” . Nick, thanks for being one of the chillest yet most competitive guys I know.
