Ski­er of The Impos­si­ble: Did you know?

On Sep­tem­ber 23rd (that’s today!),1936, the father of extreme ski­ing, Syl­vain Saudan was born in Lau­sanne, Switzer­land. Saudan has many notable first descents on the world’s largest peaks, includ­ing Mount McKin­ley, Mont Blanc, Kil­i­man­jaro, and Mt. Fuji, among many oth­ers. To descend these peaks, Saudan pio­neered and per­fect­ed the “jump turn,” which allowed him to do 180 degree turns down the steep­est ski­able pitch­es in the world.

Here There Be Drag­ons: Did you know? Accord­ing to the Chi­nese zodi­ac cal­en­dar, 2012 is the Year of the Drag­on. This round it’s a water drag­on, mean­ing we can expect a wild ride with­out the chaos a year of the fire drag­on might bring. (Of course that’s just if you hope the Mayans and Nos­tradamus are wrong in their pre­dic­tions that the world will sud­den­ly end this year.) For Li-Ning, the biggest Chi­nese name in sports­wear, the 2012 drag­on lends both pas­sion and wings as the pre­mi­um brand launch­es for the first time in the Unit­ed States. Li-Ning is a cel­e­bra­tion of the ‘New Chi­na,’ where pre­mi­um goods are designed by cul­ture mak­ers and artists who demand an exquis­ite atten­tion to detail in each of their high-end prod­ucts. For exam­ple, the brand is cel­e­brat­ing Year of the Drag­on with ath­let­ic shoes inspired by thou­sands of years of Chi­nese art, includ­ing ancient porce­lain vas­es and the bold yel­low robes worn by lead­ers of the ancient Tang Dynasty.
