ABOUT SIMPLY SKIING, JUST LIKE THAT

At MDV, our goal has always been to provide the best possible equipment for all types of skiers. No matter the preferred type of terrain, conditions or level, we aim to keep the enjoyment dialed up high for everyone’s on-snow experience. We truly believe that the greatest aspect of skiing is that there are no boundaries. You can ski with a group of friends, your family, partners or strangers – anyone who shares the love of the sport!

Our women’s program at MDV has always held onto certain values – our strength in product, our team of phenomenal female athletes and all the passionate skiers out there, no matter their level or style of skiing. From badass big mountain skiers, to upstart young World Cup racers and everyone in between, we’ve had arguably the strongest team of female skiers in the world for decades. Now it’s time to shine a light on these personalities and show how we love the sport, rather than telling the same old story. We will continue to stick to our core values of great product for great skiers, but with an eye towards the passion, that brings us all to the sport. Keeping it light and fun, while providing targeted technical information and education to bring more women into the realm of really loving skiing.

This initiative goes out to all the women who love to ski. We acknowledge the efforts spent to get to the mountains – organizing yourself and your family and we celebrate that you are out there skiing.

The newest member of the MDV team:

KATIE BURREL

Leisure skier, comedian & director

To bring this project to life we have brought on board leisure skier, comedian & director Katie Burrell, who’s is the “glue” between our team of ripping female athletes and the average skier who might not be a pro but who loves skiing as much as we do.

Katie Burrell has to figure out where she fits in...

Can she ski? Yes.

But has she competed on the Freeride World Tour? Made a first descent? Raced in a world cup? Thrown a switch left 12 at the X Games?

Thankfully, no.

And why should she have to do any of those things?
Why can’t she just go out there and be mediocre?
Why can’t being good enough be enough?

Katie sets out to “take it down a notch,” to remove from skiing the obsession with performance and replace it with the fun; to show that if she can do it, anyone can; to prove that the gilded world of culture, skill and image can really be about, simply, skiing. Just like that.

ALL MOUNTAIN FREERIDE SKIS

A ski for the rad woman who loves to ski everything on the mountain with speed and precision.

A ski for the rad woman who is a ripper in all conditions and wants a ski that will support her from bell to bell, top to bottom, yet allow her enough in the tank to après like a rockstar afterward.

PURE FREERIDE SKIS

A ski for the rad woman who wants to glide and playfully turn with ease off-piste in deeper conditions with the option to head further afield into the backcountry should her desire and fresh powder coincide.

A ski for the rad woman who revels in agile, responsive turns all across the mountain, and might want to tackle an uphill touring effort followed by a technical backcountry descent.

A ski for the rad woman who is adventurous and multi-faceted, desiring a powerfully light, maneuverable ski that will adapt to every condition with ease and elegantly transition to a backcountry freeriding ski should the mood strike.

Ever since I bought my very first pair of Völkl skis almost 20 years ago, I've felt so proud, grateful, and confident to be skiing the very best possible equipment on the market.  Every little detail of the design and function of these skis and bindings has the focus, intention, and skill of passionate skiers who care.  It's something that I can feel, and I am fortunate that every time I go to the mountain I know I have all of that energy and intent beneath my feet.  Knowing I'm on the very best gear frees my mind to think about all of the other important things about being on the mountain, like scouting my line, breathing fresh air, and simply focusing on the next turn.
 
When women's skis first came on the market, there was a real distrust from core skiers, myself included, because some initial skis from a few companies didn't have much design intent behind them. It was more about seizing a sales opportunity. People noticed the women's market growing, so a few companies made some light, soft skis with pastel colors or flowers on them and hoped they could sell a bunch because they had cute topsheets. However, Völkl's women's skis were immediately about performance.  The designers saw it as a challenge: "How can we make high performance skis that meet women's needs?" From the first time I got on these skis, they changed my mind from the women's skis I had tested previously. The Völkls were playful and nimble while still retaining that true, damp, skier's feel of a Völkl--they can glue me to the rails and charge through thick crud, and also float and fly through light pow.  My guy friends happily ski on Völkl women's skis – they too know that skiing a well-made ski is more about size, shape, construction, and strength to weight ratio than about what color the top sheet is or if you pee standing up or sitting down.  
 
In addition, Völkl as a company has always supported and promoted female athletes in a huge way. 

The mountains are my happy place. Growing up in Minnesota I did not have access to mountains (my home ski area, Hyland Hills, is 175 ft/54m vertical). I remember our first family trip to Colorado and it was pure magic. That magic has never diminished for me. I started racing at age nine and made the US Ski Team at 15 years old. After ten years racing internationally and competing in the Torino and Vancouver Olympics, I retired from the World Cup in 2010. I wanted to explore the mountains without gates and courses dictating where and when I could turn. Post racing I fell even deeper in love with skiing when I discovered the beauty and adventure of the backcountry. As a reincarnated big-mountain skier, I get to travel to some of the most staggering corners of the world to do what I love and what makes it even better is that I get to share those experiences with others. I am one lucky girl.

»In every phase of my life there has always been a constant: skis on my feet. Through the ups and downs, transitions and growth, I have never strayed far from the mountains. I will always find joy in turning- as a pro, as a competitor, as a business woman, as a partner, as a mom, as a friend, as an individual ... It never has been a conscious decision, it has just been a given – I am a skier. Just like that.«

Since 2010 I have pursued a career as a competitive freeride skier. This lifestyle has led me to travel all over the world and live in Europe, New Zealand and North America. After realising one of my goals to qualify for the Freeride World Tour in 2013, my focus changed to pursuing challenges in wild places, backcountry skiing and ski mountaineering to reach peaks and new ski zones. I have produced a two year documentary film with my sister Anna Segal and Bjarne Salén, Finding The Line. I have a bachelor degree in Fine Arts and love to write.

»The day I bought my first pair of Völkls, the Bridge, was the beginning of an eleven-year journey where despite the ups and downs, I always knew my skis would hold up to the personal boundaries I was trying to push against. The innovative gear produced by Völkl, Marker and Dalbello have supported me to explore new disciplines, pushing into freeride and backcountry skiing with confidence. Skiing has been a huge influence in my life, empowering me to take big leaps beyond just dropping into a freeride competition face.«

Nadine Wallner stems from the small village of Klosterle just west of the famous Arlberg region in Western Austria, where she still lives today. Thus one could say that Nadine is a natural born freerider. In her childhood years she honed her skiing skills as an alpine racer, but her father, a local mountain guide, took her out into the backcountry early on and set the tone for the years to come. Despite being only 23 years old, Nadine already holds a full degree as an Austrian Ski Instructor. Even more surprising is her impressive list of success at freeride competitions, though.

While it normally takes big mountain freeriders several years to build up enough experience and confidence to be successful, Nadine Wallner won her first freeride competition 2011 and went on to win the Freeride World Qualifier events in Nendaz and at the Kitzsteinhorn 2012. Her real motivation for the lifestyle of a professional freerider, however, is her love for nature and mountains and therefore Nadine looks forward to travel the world for film and photo shoots just as much as competing on the Freeride World Tour this season. Be sure to see the results at a screen near you very soon!

»MDV is a big family. They support me in all kind of ways. Cool to have them in the back, when you want to perform on a high level of skiing.«

The daughter of the ski patrol director at Utah’s Snowbird ski area, Angel Collinson grew up in employee housing at the base of the mountain, becoming a skier not long after she learned to walk. As kids, she and her parents and her younger brother, fellow pro skier Johnny Collinson, would spend summers living out of their family’s van and climbing peaks all over the western United States.

An elite ski racer through her teens, Collinson gave up racing at age 19 and started entering big-mountain freeskiing contests, all while studying environmental law at the University of Utah. In her first year on the Freeskiing World Tour, in 2010, she won the overall title as a rookie, which she claimed again the following year. By 2013, she’d transitioned to filming, with a breakout part in Teton Gravity Research’s annual ski movie. Now a regular star athlete in TGR’s films, Collinson’s claimed many awards for her film parts, including become the first female in history to win Best Line at the Powder Video Awards for the footage of her slashing a steep spine in Alaska.     

»To me, skiing is a way to be in touch with myself, to explore the beauty of the natural world, and to make the most of dancing and playing during our short time on this planet. Völkl/Marker/Dalbello makes the best tools to do that – tools to maximize my favourite way of enjoying life! It is simple and profound. Just like that.«

My career started out on the free ride scene. I competed on the US freeksi circuit and also on the FWT. When Halfpipe got accepted into the Olympics I decided to qualify and ended up in 5th Place. I've also been filming with Shades of Winter since 2013. I feel so lucky to be able do what I love as a job.

As I've transitioned from different disciplines in my ski career, freeride to freestyle to ski mountaineering, it's comforting to know there is always a ski in the Völkl line that's suited to perform for any activity I choose to do on the day. I feel lucky to be supported by a ski company that's on the forefront of ski development and technology. It's awesome to know that they really care about developing skis and putting out the best design possible being proactive with athletes input and feedback. I'm so stoked to be a part of the Völkl family.

»Whether it be freeride, freestyle, big mountain or touring, the athletes have direct input into the skis development and you can feel this when you ski them.«

French girl who likes to have fun and travel the world for skiing. I grew up in Vienne (France), and then moved in Grenoble for my studies, where I also started skiing. After six years competing, I have now decided to focus fully on filming and producing a female Freeski movie. Can't wait to see what the future brings in terms of ski trips, meetings and experiences!

»The Völkl female team is filled with amazing riders from all disciplines, from alpine athletes to freestyle skiers. It's highly inspiring, and contributes to make Völkl such an innovative and dynamic brand. It's also made possible by the variety of skis Völkl provides: you can find a good ski that suits you whatever type of skiing you like, which is one of the reasons I am so glad and honoured to be part of the team.«
