2010 Lange Girls Lineup

Love or loathe it, Lange has been making posters ripe with sex appeal — and ski boots! — since 1970. And 2009-10 was no exception.

The company has just announced its 2009-10 Lange Girl lineup, and the women are as easy on the eyes as ever.

This year’s models join the ranks of Olympian Julia Mancuso, a 2006 Lange Girl Athlete (pictured above) who won silver in both the downhill and super combined events at the Winter Olympics last month.

But make no mistakes. These women have the skill to match their good looks.

Each of the four winners — one national and three regional — are ski instructors, racers, hardcore powder hounds, and all around rippin’ chicks.

The 2010 Lange Girls Winners

Denja Rand, national Lange girl; Sophie Dinsenbacher, California region; and Alex Guras, Rocky Mountain region.

Rand calls Lake Placid, N.Y., her home, and she rips at Whiteface Mountain. She grew up skiing down her driveway where she’d stop by crashing into the snow bank at the end. An unlikely start to any ski career.

Dinsenbacher is a 20-year-old ski instructor who grew up in New Zealand. It’s no wonder why her parents put her on skis — her Dad manages a ski resort in the land of Kiwis. Now she shreds Mammoth Mountain on her Dynastar Omeglass World Cup and Six Senth Bigs.

Finally, the Northeast region Lange Girl (above) is a powder hound at heart. She skis at Sugarloaf in Maine and is said to “ditch work, boyfriends and school to hit the slopes.”
