These Bodies Are Made For Skiing. And Looking At

Winter, as they say, is coming – which means for us here that soon enough the world’s best skiers will wrap their gorgeous bodies in all sorts of warm clothing, denying their fans a chance of seeing them on social media “au naturale” – well, nearly.

Let’s take a look at what this outgoing summer gave us. And what a feast for the eyes it was!

Lucas Chanavat, France improves his already strong reputation of the owner of lonely girls’ hearts the world over with these pictures of himself doing a handstand– this time, at Holmenkollen.

Chanavat’s biggest rival in that heart-breaker department is none else but Johannes Klaebo of Norway – another skier with ideal body.

Chanavat is 22, Klaebo is 20… hm..anybody a little more mature?

Naturally – Petter Northug, would not to yield an inch in the looks department – here, surrounded by his fellows Trondheimers plus one hot Brit Andrew Musgrave.

And here’s the Russians on top of things – lead by a 3-time World Champion Sergey Ustuigov and an Olympic Champion Alexander Legkov.

Just like Legkov, Italian Dietmar Noecler doesn’t like training in a stuffy gym. He took all necessary equipment with him and did a session outside – for our collective enjoyment.

Teodor Peterson, Sweden. Having a rest after 220 km cycling in that brief Swedish summer. Sleep tight!

Freedom-loving American skiers don’t like wearing t-shirts in summer either. Andrew Newell sets the tempo!

Well, I hope you enjoyed looking at them as much as I did selecting them. Comments? Opinions? Suggestions? Send it here – we strive to deliver the best (and the best is always to do with skiing).
