Announcing ADL Greek Island Sailing and Adventures in Sept 2021! The Greek islands hold a special allure for many travelers who come to enjoy crystal clear azure blue seas, kaleidoscope sunsets, fresh culinary delights and afternoon naps powered by ouzo. The ADL has been escaping to this paradise for over 25 years and we are bringing it to you!
The short answer yes! Long answer... the impacts and uncertainty of travel in the age of Covid-19 is presenting unprecedented challenges to all aspects of our lives. As of now all our trips are scheduled and we plan to proceed as soon as travel restrictions allow. Below are the links to our planned and scheduled DreamTrips.
The 9th Annual ADL Mahre Camp took place at Mt. Hood on June 24-26th, 2020. We overcame the challenges of hosting an event during the Covid-19 lockdowns and pulled off our largest camp ever. Over 28 campers came from all over the country to train with Phil, Steve, Mark Burandt and American Downhill legend AJ Kitt. We capped off the weekend with our legendary Hammerschlagen Tournament of Champions at the Glacier Public House in Government Camp and crowned a new champion.
We’re making an official run of our 2020/21 Season Club/Team Jacket. We ordered three prototypes and tested them out during the ADL Mahre Camp at Mt Hood and they performed well on the hill and in town. This jacket from Arctica is a super light puffy that has style that screams early 70s cool. We added our 501c3 2Hammers.org logo to the right chest and put our yellow classic Hammer logo on the sleeve. On the back we have the red and white ADLskiclub Quattro logo. It looks and performs radically and now is your chance to own one.
The Inkling: What is the Willy's Run? Well first you have to ask what is a Willy's. If you have been on one of our Austria Dream Trips then you would know the answer to the first part. Willy's is a uniquely Austrian shot of Williams Pear Schnapps with a little round cocktail pear in the bottom of the glass, often adorned with a tooth-picked Austrian flag. It's one of the most enjoyable après shots in the world, clean, refreshing with just the right amount of whooooeeeee on the finish.
If you ever wanted to experience an ADL Dream Trip on your own or with just your group of friends we are happy to announce Private & Custom ADL Trips for next winter. Make a trip private by reserving any available date exclusively for you and your crew.
In our opinion, a great day of skiing should always conclude with a little après fun and a truly fantastic meal. So, to that end, we are compiling your favorite recipes. We have a few contributions from ADL members and friends across the globe - Send us yours and let's add to this!
We had five crazy trips this winter with five different groups of fun, adventurous ADL members. On each trip there were people we met or things that happened which created hilarious stories and memories to last a lifetime. We can't fit them all on here as honestly, there were too many but, we can pick a few of the best images and share more details about the stories behind them.
Bist Du Wild Genug? Our 5th Annual Austria Dream Trip was one for the ages. We had a cohesive group of 13 with a mix of ADL veterans, a couple newbies, three adventurous women with everyone sharing a passion for World Cup racing and wild free skiing. Are you wild enough?
Follow 12 intrepid ADL members, led by American Downhill legend AJ Kitt into the magic of the Jungfrau mountains of Switzerland. We hang with World Cup legends, get held up at gun point by James Bond, while the Suisse Air Force dive bombs us underneath the North Face of the Eiger.
"Hold Your Breath", is the title of the latest article on Myoko in the December, 2019 issue of Powder Magazine. When we first heard they were going there to write it, we were the ones holding our breath. Our first reaction was to cringe, at the thought of throngs of new skiers invading what has been ours alone. However, stepping back and reflecting on what Myoko is with a calm view, the recent attention is a great validation for what we have been telling and showing our members over the last five years. "Exhale… It is as good as we have been saying and it wont change anytime soon!”
Just in time for winter 2020 comes are latest Japow hat. This warm 50% wool blend trucker is adorned with our faux leather JAPOW logo. The Japanese writing says Fukai Yuki which means Deap Snow and that's exactly what you'll get when you come on one of our trips to the land of the rising sun.
This summer saw the grand opening of the club training and gastronomy center of excellence in the Greek Island of Kalymnos. The Mahre brothers and cousin Todd along with all their wives and ADL member and head coach Knut Olberg, cut the ribbon on the newest addition to the club offerings.
Join the ADL and Chris Hillier from Sidecut Tuesday December 10th from 5:30PM-8:30PM at Lagunitas Brewing in Seattle, WA.
Cog trains, high alpine peaks, milk chocolate, cuckoo clocks, beer gardens and cozy alpine villages where the mood is defined as Bavarian kitsch on steroids... this is Switzerland and those elements combine to make an agreeably pleasant feeling, called gemütlich.
