“We try to do it under a chairlift, just for fun, so we get a lot of cheers from the chairs and ‘woo-hoos’.” –Belinda McConnell
If you’re skiing at Deer Valley and see a couple in matching outfits vigorously arching turns perfect synchronicity under the lift line, give them some encouragement as they work towards their goal of skiing 3 million vertical feet this season.
Belinda and Mike McConnell who go by SYNCSKI on Instagram, are regulars at the Utah ski resort and draw attention with their synchronized skiing moves and matching ski wear. FOX13 reports the couple has four matching helmets, seven jackets, and 10 sweaters:
“A few years ago, I just sort of hooked on the idea we ought to wear matching jackets, and it took me a couple of years to convince her. We did coordinating jackets for a while, and then I found some that actually matched, and we just kind of liked it and now it’s sort of my hobby is looking for matching ski clothes.”
They even pressed custom skis to coordinate with their various getups:
Got to love a little showmanship under the chairlift to brighten your day. Best of luck to Belinda and Mike on the 3M. We love what you’re doing:
