Julia Mancuso

Our super ski-travel blogger, Julia Mancuso, has had some early success at the FIS world ski championships in Garmisch-Partenkirchen, Germany. On the first day of competition Tuesday, Julia finished second in the super-G, a speed event that includes tighter turns than a downhill race.

We prefer to think that Julia’s association with TravelChannel.com, which began in December, has brought her good luck. But she won three previous world championship medals before she started blogging for us. Julia also has won three Olympic medals, including gold in the giant slalom at the 2006 Turin Olympics and two silvers at the 2010 Vancouver Olympics.

Julia is planning to compete in three of the four remaining events at worlds–the downhill, the super combined and the giant slalom. The championships end February 20.

You can read Julia’s blog on TravelChannel.com and get updates about her performances at worlds from her website.

We know you want Sam Brown’s job, but if you love skiing as much as we do, we’d like to introduce you to another person with a dream job: Julia Mancuso. The American Alpine skier and Olympic champion spends most of the year competing in events all over the world. And now she is blogging for us about all things skiing and travel.

And did we mention that her boyfriend is hottie Norwegian skier, Aksel Lund Svindal? They are the Prince William and Kate Middleton of the ski world. Hopefully, Julia will tell us where they go for a Valentine’s Day getaway.

Follow all Julia’s adventures on and off the slopes on her blog. Check out our Skiing section for trip ideas, photos, videos and more. And for all you snowboarders out there, check out our Best US Snowboarding Vacations.
