Wengen DreamTrip 2023 Photos & Story

Easily one of the most beautiful and traditional World Cup races on the whole circuit, Wengen is a magical alpine wonderland filled with cog trains, racers, raclette and fighter jets buzzing through majestic mountain peaks at warp speed. You really can't anticipate the fun and alpine beauty you will experience over the course of the week until suddenly, you are drowning in it like a piece of bread falling into a bubbling pot of hot fondue. 

Austria DreamTrip Photos & Stories 2023

Always the biggest and most wild trip of the season, the Austrian DreamTrip is unpredictable, crazy and beyond fun. Joining us for this year's trip was former World Cup and USA Olympic racer AJ Kitt. We had a passionate group of skiers and race fans with us, and it was quite possibly the wildest trip ever.

Dolomites DreamTrip Photos & Story 2023

Our home for the week was at the World Cup famous Moelgg Family Residence in San Vigilio. We can walk to Kronplatz and we have old farms mixed with new lodges all around us. The cute horses across the street liked Dave because he brought them carrots. It snowed our first night too and we had great skiing and the food.... well that is almost the whole reason for going. 

Elevenate & Eisbär ADL Spring Combo Deal

It's never too early to stock up and look good for next seasons DreamTrips. To celebrate our new partner Elevenate, we put together this sweet package deal to get things started right. We took their highly technical and cozy Combin GORE-TEX Infinium down jacket for cold days in the mountains and combined it with our matching Eisbar ADL DreamTrips Beanie. The matching combo will set you apart from the crowd and keep you warm in any condition. Perfect for strolling around the villages of Wengen, Kitz and Chamonix. Save when you buy the set.

Engelberg DreamTrip Photos & Story

Freeriding in the huge mountains of Engelberg with a small group of ADL original Dream trippers Scott and Lorne Lewis, Kris Hendricks and rookie Patrick Brown. The reported low snowpack had us nervous but after a 6000' tram ride from the town to the top peak our fears were put to rest. Great snow and wild terrain, marked with glaciers, rocks and chutes awaited us just steps from the lifts. Ginormous might not be a word but the terrain at Engelberg was huge.

Chamonix DreamTrip 2023 Photos & Story

We had a group of 11 enthusiastic friends and family book out the whole trip a year in advance. These people wanted the full Chamonix experience and I think we delivered. The valley hadn’t seen new snow in over a month when we arrived but, the ADL magic followed us in just like at Engelberg. We skied the Valle blanche from the Italian side on the first day with powder in 40 days. We always try to check all the boxes… not too many were left empty on this trip.

Has Skiing Lost It’s Soul?

It was a question raised in a famous article in Powder Magazine 15 or 20 years ago and although the sport has survived since then, if you read the local group chats and ski news around America the last few years, you will undoubtedly start asking yourself if indeed, the sport of skiing has finally lost its soul.

We even made it over to Zurs and learned why it was always Warren Miller's favorite destination.
