Earlyups.com posted this article listing 5 Women Skiers that you rarely hear about.

 

 

From the article: 

Truth is we have no problem with half naked yoga, skiers modeling in surf mags, FHM centerfold girls or cheesy Youtube videos with more girl dancing than skiing. However, these are all byproducts of something we hope to see first and foremost. Girls shredding. Hard. Thing is, in a sport populated primarily by dudes, the gals that turn heads are going to  be the same girls that look good in a bikini. And if your goal as a marketer is to sell shit, and good looking girls get the views…well, we aren’t mathematicians but its pretty easy to put 2 and 2 together.... Read More

Yeah, apparently I'm the world's biggest hypocrite here. I've always thought the whole burqa thing was absolutely the stupidest, most un-enlightened, male-chauvenist-pig-enabling thing I'd ever heard of. So I read your post and think to myself, "Yeah. I agree. Totally. Good thought, TC" Then I click on the link and see the part of the page "above the fold" and my first reaction is, "Wow, nice shoulders." So just start now with the rotten tomatoes. And put on those burqas. Sigh. th_dunno-1[1].gif

It was a trap! They wrote that article and then snuck in the skin....

Even though there is this editors note, I was stoked by the videos overall....

 

Editor’s Note: The Following was put together with MUCH help by SheJumps‘ very own Liz Cunningham. It would be silly for a group of dudes to select the most underrated gal skiers. So we asked for help. From all of us at Earlyups, THANK YOU LIZ!

Wish it was less POV in those videos. But from what I could see, no one was "skiing like a girl". ;)
