Pro skiers inject a little Italy into Vail Village. by HIL ARY NANGLE


Step inside Valbruna, the cozy Vail Village boutique, and be transported to Italy — Valbruna, Italy, to be precise. Former Italian World Cup and American pro skier Marco Tonazzi — together with his wife, former ski film star Amy Wheeler Tonazzi — have created a vest-pocket tribute to Marco’s hometown, the Julian Alps village snugged against northeastern Italy’s Austria-Slovenia border. “My parents bought a cabin in Valbruna in 1963 that changed the course of our lives,” Marco says. “We traveled from Udine to the mountains every winter and I started to ski.”

Marco and Amy — whom fans will recall skiing in classic Warren Miller films — opened their Vail Village store in 1998. “I struggled with the store’s name, because I was thinking about Native Americans who believe that taking their picture steals a bit of their soul,” Marco says. He worried that naming the store for his home ski town would do the same, but Amy’s mother convinced him doing so was actually a tribute to a place he loved and often returned. Once he accepted that, he endeavored to make the village part of the store.

Sheep farms, hot springs, and heli-ski startups among the primordial peaks of Iceland’s Troll Peninsula. words by A NDR E W F INDL AY photographs by K A R I ME DIG

Louise Kyle on Karlsárfjall with Eyjafjörður in the background.


oaring near the mountain tops of the Troll Peninsula I ponder what I have seen already after only a few short days on this remote North Atlantic island perched in contented limbo between Europe and North America. Barren valleys dotted with remote sheep farms, herds of shaggy Icelandic horses grazing near a hot spring that bubbles next to the sea, and dormant volcanoes that betray the geological violence that has shaped this land, and in turn its proud and spirited people. If a pair of trolls suddenly appeared at my feet I would hardly be surprised. Few places are as evocative of something 122

primordial and magical as Iceland appears to me at this moment. Our guide Jökull Bergmann, or JB, steps out of the chopper, his unruly reddish blonde hair barely contained by an Arctic Heli Skiing toque. We’ve touched down atop a run known as The Horse on a glorious sunny day; nearly 4,000 vertical feet of corn snow lies between us and Klængshóll, headquarters for Arctic Heli Skiing, the red roofs of the old farmhouse and surrounding buildings visible in a golden grassy pasture near the valley bottom. More than a month after I normally store ski gear and switch to other pursuits, I’m digging deep

n the pantheon of first‑rate photographers, some might say Ansel Adams was to nature what Slim Aarons was to haute society. But what if Aarons was actually both? Moreover, what if the two star shutterbugs, both American, both now gone, were actually more alike than one might, at first, deduce? Aarons — whose photographs remain the definitive ode to a bygone jet set, an all-encompassing photo album of the rich at play — was big on “mise en place,” according to his daughter, Mary Aarons. His rule of thumb, she explains as we sit to talk, was that the “entire setting should tell the  story of the place or person.” And among those settings? A plethora of photos set amongst the planet's most fabulous wintry abodes: photos that rank among her own personal favorites. Though lesser known, perhaps, than some of her father’s most enduring photos — images like Poolside Gossip of two socialites exchanging intel in Palm Springs, or Kings of Hollywood in which Clark Gable and friends laugh it up in black tie in Beverly Hills — the snow‑speckled photos continue to cast an allure unto themselves. Mary Aarons, the keeper of her father’s legacy, generally favors “the landscapes,” as she calls them. In that respect, her father covered the gamut, his many “ski-lift” tableaux (from Gstaad to Aspen) acting as a foil to the “beautiful boats... the beach umbrellas” that he also endlessly, tirelessly, chronicled from the Côte d’Azur. 136

In Aarons’ world of après-ski, the champagne flows ever freely and the frisson of fun is never far.
