Slope Style: 3 Chic Ski Ensembles
page 4 of 4
Dressing for winter sports is all about personal style: what moves you and what you can move in. Sleek designs are timeless, and with innovative activewear and a winter wardrobe built on the classics, fashion and function meld seamlessly. For these three lovely athletes from Aspen, turning heads at the gondola plaza on an Ajax powder day is as effortless as a knee-deep Zaug’s run. Cropped puffer coats, roomy ski pants, and cute pom-pom hats are standout pieces that Aspen’s pro and local skiers commonly covet. And when it comes to hats, these ladies wear many: They moonlight as environmental advocates, restaurateurs, and architects when they’re not shredding the slopes. Valerie Alexander Yaw, Darcy Conover, and Katrina DeVore—our notable local skiers—combine rich neutrals such as camel, cream, and tan with classic black and white for a look that fits their ski styles and lifestyles.

Aspen Valley Ski & Snowboard Club brought back what is perhaps the most exciting nonprofit benefit in the Roaring Fork Valley, the 5th annual Audi Ajax Cup! Teams – comprised of AVSC athletes, current and former ski racing pros, and donors – competed head-to-head in a dual slalom race on Little Nell run on Aspen Mountain on Tuesday, Dec. 30. Onlookers and athletes were treated to the “hottest après party in Aspen” at the base with delectable bites and drinks from Zeno Aspen. The party continued at the St. Regis Aspen where AVSC raised funds for its programs and scholarships before the dance floor heated up with DJ Dylan.
