Hey fun loving Earlyups audience, Jeff here with my own personal POV. While I agree its pretty egotistical to post your own POV to your own site I thought of 4 reasons to answer the question “Why you should watch this video?” 1) Its short. 2) It features 1 OTH face shot for every 4 seconds of skiing. 3) It has good lighting (most of the time). 4) It features a rare instance of my (much coveted) singing. In the words of the intern, “wow Jeff, you really are the songbird of our generation”. Put another way, check this out for a sampling of conditions in the Tetons thus far…
We are starting a new piece here on Earlyups dubbed “Ski Trivia”. In this Salomon athlete battle royale, the legendary Sick Rick Armstrong goes against the young big mountain whippersnapper Cody Townsend to see once and for all (in the Salomon booth) who is the bigger ski nerd. How many did you answer right?
Sled, ride, bike, boat. For most, that would be a good year. For Don Watkins, its just a good weekend. Don takes us through his 48 hour extravaganza during the first weekend in June….Yep, its like a video game where the cheat code has been entered for “Jackson Hole”. And we must say, it sure does look FUN. Enjoy.
Thanks to Condorcam and MSI we’re proud to release footage from the 2012 Subaru Freeskiing World Championships in Snowbird. Were you at the event or watching it online? Did you see the camera flying over head? Yep. Us too. I wish we knew who was who in here, but I think Chopo Diaz airs first and Tabke sneaks his landing in about halfway, if you recognize anyone else let us and (more importantly) them know. Once you’re done here check out the Snowbird site from the Freeskiing World Tour for the official results, video and associated whatnot.
Editors note: With the season winding down we’ll be re-posting some of our favorite videos from ’10-’11 for your summer viewing pleasure. Let’s kick it off with a bang with the most serious video we’ve made all season:
It’s Thursday afternoon. For a lot of you, that means its time to get ready for the weekend. And guess what? It’s still snowing out there. With Jackson’s weather stations buried, Squaw long ago breaking a season record and Snowbird passing the 700″ mark (breaking its record) I think its safe to say many of us still have skis in our truck and boots in the back seat. To get your head in the game we’re re-featuring this video we dropped last Friday at 4PM. (what you missed it doing something fun last Friday? How dare you.)
Andrew Whiteford consistently puts out our favorite POV’s in skiing. Watch as Andrew flashes impressive lines around Jackson and makes it all look a bit too easy. As usual, this edit is a blast and tells my brain that I must go skiing immediately!
If you have 30 seconds. Spend it here. Andrew Whiteford shows us all what makes him “feel that way”…
Somehow we here at Earlyups ended up doing four Glory laps in one day. Here is the resulting edit. If you’ve got one minute, spend it here.
Earlyups brings you a short dueling POV edit from Teton Pass during the latest storm cycle.
