Every day on snow is a chance to experience something new. Skiing can mean; being in love, testing your own boundaries and embracing an outdoor lifestyle. Our female skiers are constantly setting new challenges, not only professional, but also ones that are related to relaxing or enjoying the snow and creating life balance. They have decided to share with us all their dynamic moments in which they test their own limits.
As always, Elan is their companion and their chosen instrument.
How about you? What are your personal challenges for today?

There are people who dedicate their entire lives to a single activity. For Lisa Densmore Ballard, the activity is skiing. She knows everything there is to know about it. Over nearly four decades, Lisa has tried and tested skiingin every way, shape and form. In the second half of the seventies she was a member of the American national team.
Skiing is far more than just the means of getting down a mountain in the easiest way possible. We each shape our own definition as we each find our own place in the sport. For some, it is a philosophy and meditation. The conditions in snow covered mountains are often very harsh, even cruel, but we are still drawn up there by an unstoppable attraction.
