Some athletes head to parts of the world with temperate climates where you can ride year-round in the off-season, while others spend hundreds of hours on the indoor trainer and at the gym. Here we highlight some of the athletes that thrive in a cold climate and are equally impressive on skis or snowboards as they are on two wheels.





Zakarias Johansen






Kurt Sorge






Dylan Siggers






Remy Metailler






Jesse Melamed






Sage Cattabriga-Alosa






Brittany Phelan





Nino Schurter






Michelle Parker






Isabeau Courdurier






KC Deane






Casey Brown






Finn Iles






Brett Tippie

 It’s a shame that Palmer is missing from this list. He was a game changer for the sport of MTB and raised hell in snowboarding.-
Next to that he was pretty damn good at motocross too.

 He doesn't count as "dual sport" because he killed it in dual slalom, DH, boarder-x skier-x, moto-x, etc

 @dangerousdave: Yeah, most versatile athlete ever.

 100%. Other than Schley and maybe Tippie, I think he's the only that actually made a living from both bikes and snow.

 Sage is one of the best freeskiers in the history of the sport, he is in another universe than the other's on the list... KC is up there too and Britney Phelan...

 Sage is one of my all time favorite skiers! Seeing him shred a bike is always awesome, and I love that Sage took part in Cam McCaul's backyard debauchery. #RIPJORDIE

 John Cardiel. One of, if not, the gnarliest pro skateboarders ever. During that time he was briefly a professional snowboarder. Now, he kills it on a bike. All hail Cardiel.

 Brittany Phelan has an actual Olympic silver medal in Ski Cross, so maybe the strongest competitive skier on this list.

 KC Deane was also a pro skier before turning to freeride

 Brittany is phenomenal. Those Olympic races were brilliant and the team camaraderie shone through. tup

 I thought most of the pro mtb-er (and mtb-ers in general) would be snowboarders and not skiers, but that does not seem to be the case. I think more mtb-ers ski rather than snowboard. PinkBike should take a poll to see who skis and snowboards. Results would be interesting.

 Head above 3000m and it's there. Which is good cos you can ride your bike up to 1000 and not freeze your ass off and then heliski a couple of days later and curse yourself for not having the fattest skis available. I love a bit of vice signalling, and I've already apologized to future generations.

 Just asking... is freeskiing now officially more cool than snowboarding?
  • 4 7
 Of course not, Isabeau is the coolest out there. Given you the horns inside those mittens. Oh yeah!
  • 6 1
 Has been since 2010. Plus if we’re talking dual sport ski n bike... there are so many similarities and such great cross training. If u wanna bike better, go ski

 Once skis started to make use of all the cool tech snowboards came up with skis made a huge comeback. If skis had been that cool back when I was a kid I may have tried that instead of ending up on a board.

 @mfoga:
Skis using tech developed from boards?
What tech are you speaking of?
  • 6 1
 @elsinore: first and most obvious twin tip skis. Shape, side cut, shorter wider ect... skis were mostly straight planks then snowboarding developed all this stuff to make them work and suddenly skis started to evolve to what you see today. Those advances were all from the advances snowboarding brought to the table.

 It’ll flip back to snowboarding. All the 10 and under kids want to snowboard. It’s the Paw Patrol effect.

 @mfoga:
You may have some argument with twin tips.
Side cut evolved from ski racing and was a thing as far back as the 70’s, the only limiting factor there was always torsional stiffness (also nailed down from ski racing) Once side flex was addressed everyone had short radius stuff. Thank people like the Mahre bros and Bode Miller for that.

 Just watch this clip, and then we can conclude that snowboarding is the most soulful sport, alongside with mountain biking.

 Reckon riding 20ft high skinnies in BC is about as good practice as you can get for trying to walk through a wet, tile-floor bar/restaurant in ski boots.
