Mad for Maude
O’Neill-sponsored Maude Raymond has incredible style both on and off the mountain.
Maude Raymond is known as one of the most stylish women in the world of professional skiing. Best known as Maad Maude (that is both her Instagram handle and the name of the super-popular web series showcasing her incredible on-mountain skills), this O’Neill sponsored athlete is one of the biggest forces in female skiing. Want proof? Freeskier magazine just named her the “Skier of the Year.” But this ripping downhiller isn’t only about getting sick air and landing death-defying tricks, she is also a prime example that being an incredible female athlete doesn’t mean you have to sacrifice your fashion sense. We asked Raymond to show us a few of the O’Neill pieces she can’t live without on her constant travels. She dug into her luggage and told us about a few of her favorite pieces and why they work for her fast-paced, full-on life as the darling of the ski industry.
Raymond’s Favorite O’Neill Pieces:
(Clockwise from Top Left): Sports Shell Jacket: “This shell is a technical, lightweight jacket. I can go to the gym in it, or it’s perfect for a morning run because it breathes really well. It’s a great training jacket because it’s a functional and technical piece. I recommend it for anyone who wants to exercise when it’s a little chilly outside.”
Repetition Bra and Soar Capri: “These are from O’Neill’s women’s hybrid series, which is their active women’s collection. I’m stoked on these two pieces-I’ve washed them like 10 times, and they are still holding their shape perfectly. These are my favorite pair of leggings, and the bra keeps everything in just the right place.”
Woods Jacket: “I love this jacket because I can wear it on and off the mountain. It’s from the O’Neill adventure series. The fit is long, and it’s super warm. I also love the color.”
O’Neill Team Hoodie and Zip Hoodie (pink): “I love hoodies-they are my best friends. I like the fit of these two because they’re long, and the fabric is thick so they’re warm. And coral pink is one of my favorite colors.” oneilleshop.ca/us
