Meet 10 pro skiers who are living life on the road like champs
There’s nothing like the rush of a good road trip. Leaving behind any and all monotony to experience something new every day, hour, minute and second is something all humans ought to do at least every once in a while. But living on the road? Well that’s a whole ‘nother beast—one that folks seem to be pursuing more than ever these days.
If you’re considering life on the road yourself, or if you’re just looking for some off-the-beaten-path entertainment, we suggest checking out the 10 pro skiers and their respective rigs, below. From decked-out vans to repurposed firetrucks to wonderfully-gritty truckbed campers, these homes-on-wheels are providing raw, simple access to unforgettable adventures all over the globe.
Note: Have some questions about life in motion? Consider asking these guys and gals via Instagram; they’d likely be happy to provide some tips. Remember, they’re people too. Pro skiers don’t bite.
The van got a few sweet upgrades like a bed extension, a new stereo and her little snack jars filled up with the goodies. Feels good to be sprawled out, jamming to good tunes, munching on the good stuff, but most of all just feeling good to breathe fresh air, stick my feet in the dirt and see the stars. ⚡️ #vanlife #killingit #uintas
A summer of living in our van has come to an end! So many amazing memories from countless of beautiful places all over this country. Loving this lifestyle, and it wouldn't be the same without @sofiasjoeberg by my side. We're off on another adventure to a much more tropical place very soon, so stay tuned! #thescoremobile #vanlife
2200 kms later and we woke up at the beautiful but merciless Torö beach this morning. Getting into the 5C Baltic Sea took a lot of motivation and coffee at 6:30, but the reward was a semi-clean swell with no crowd, offering the standard short but decently powerful rides into closeouts on the rocky shore. So fun to be back in the waves! Finally got to try out my new @coldwaterstoke quiver, a 5'9 'the squirt' and a 5'10 'the carrot', brilliantly crafted boards made for these conditions! Definitely bringing these beauties up North these next few weeks… Photos by @sofiasjoeberg #thescoremobile #nordsurf #coldwaterstoke
It's been a slow week for #thescoremobile. Found a few small rust spots which turned out to be much larger than we initially thought…Six days of sanding, glassing and patching and we're putting the final coat of paint on today to get her ready for a long winter. Learning by doing! #vanlife #rustsucks
Real stoked be getting hooked up with some real energy drink. Straight hydration and good for you, check out @cocoridgewater and also follow my new page @thedrivingdedication which is my project for this upcoming season. Living outta the RV full time chasing snow. Gonna be a good one! #thedrivingdedication
It feel like a mansion in here with the pull out popped out. This also makes me think how much we can't wait to put in wood floors. Home sweet home. . . . #rvlife #lifeontheroad #fulltimerv #rvremodel #homeiswhereyouparkit #homeideas #adventure #parkinglotrats #rvliving #thedrivingdedication #lifeontheroad #
Awe ya, such an amazing time with the @salomonfreeski crew in Whistler this week for our MTN Collective meeting! Lots of exciting things to come! Now heading back to the ol USA and packing up this puppy for powder hounding (as long as Francis gets her TLC in time). Washington, Canada, Idaho?? Where should I go?? 🤔| Powered by @goalzero @yeti @salomonfreeski #funisthebest
Notes from the Road: 1. Back in the trailer! After a few months of pondering my future living situation in an actual house, normality took its toll and I moved my little nomadic ass back into the Bigfoot. 2. The Harley has been put in storage. My heart and cooter are very sad. 3. Returning from Thailand, winter has been aggressive, easing me in with sub-zero temps but also supplying one of the better early seasons I've seen in over 5 years. My heart and cooter are now happy… 4. Whistler with the @salomonfreeski crew was a success as usual! I also learned mixing French people with sake results in a hilariously dangerous situation such as urban mountaineering, tickle fights, and bruises to prove it. 5. Thanks to @witnesscompany I now actually look legit whilst listening to Pantera and Metallica. Check them out! 6. Francis is getting some TLC with my amazing mechanic. 40k+ miles this year so she definitely needed a spa getaway. 7. She's currently replaced with her older, smaller step-brother I've happily named Red. A 1977 FJ40 with a brand new V8 conversion. It's a beast and really hilarious to cram skis in to. 8. Made it to Idaho! @brundagemtn is getting pootered (snowed) on and I'm currently wondering why the f*** I'm writing this and not skiing 🤔 9. That being said…Peace suckers!! 🤘🏼🤘🏼 #adventurealways #funisthebest
