It’s overdue. We know. But at long last, our line for the lady rippers out there is in the presses and heading down the production line. Since most of the dudes at the factory are still dudes last we checked, a few rad ladies spent some of their time developing and shred-testing the line. They did us proud, so we’d like to introduce:
A Tacoma original much like ON3P, Rachel Delacour grew up immersed in the thick, deep snow of the Pacific Northwest. She’s made a habit of jealousy-inducing, month-long trips to Japan the past two years. Also, she finished climbing the five highest points in Washington with her skis in tow this past spring, adding Mt. Adams, Mt. St. Helens, and Glacier Peak.
Delacour, when not emailing us with ski ideas and marketing advice, is set to finish her degree this summer. She works in Evo’s copywriting department, so you never know--those words that convinced your last purchase might have been hers.
Last weekend, @davidpowdersteele grabbed this shot of me about 100 feet beneath the summit of Glacier Peak. If you can't tell from my expression - I was pretty tired. I was also unbelievably excited. After snacking on the summit, we skied through a short couloir and then ripped glacier corn for 4,000 vertical feet, giggling uncontrollably. #Cheers #GoSkiingWithYourFriends #TribeUP
Hard to believe that I am finally going home. Words cannot describe my immense gratitude for the handful of people who have made these last two months in Japan so incredibly fun and memorable. I am positive that I will find myself in this wonderful place again soon. In the meantime, I will miss my amazing friends, the bottomless snow, incredible views, cheap alcohol, delicious food, and insanely accessible hot drink vending machines.? Thank you Japan, for everything. #ArigatoForever
Another Pacific Northwesterner, Alexandra Pallas-Loren is always up to something: skiing, watersports, or getting behind the lens to make epic photos. She also made the trip to Japan last winter, and we'll keep dropping those shots on our Instagram as the summer dags into fall. Pallas in the process of moving to Park City for this season.
Wow, what an amazing spring ski day yesterday. Here I am practicing my billy goat skills to get into a shoot in the wolverine cirque. Always fun to ski new zones with my adventure buddy/guide/fellow billy goat @maxpeters9 #skiutah #skihappy #skiing #newplaces #adventure #earnyourturns #billygoat #billygoatsareawesome
Ohio might have been home once, but Erika bounced through editorial jobs at Newschoolers and TGR before her skills took her to her current post at Freeskier. She’s known for leading the charge to expose fresh female talent in the ski industry.
Last winter, she conducted a huge survey of lady rippers that informed what would became our Jessie line. August lightening didn’t stop her summer skiing this year, and we’ll be honest: she looks really good, especially in gold tights.
