We don’t feature very much park skiing on Earlyups, but this is different. Tune in for great shots of gigantic and creative features plus your daily dose of 2pac. I don’t remember the last time I skied park, but this one has me drooling with envy…
I wouldn’t call Salomon’s 2012 BBR a controversial ski, but I’d definitely call it a huge question mark. I’ve heard rippers talk about how great it is all year, but I also look at those dimensions and think it would never work for me. Check out the man, myth, legend Captain Benny Wilson taking them for a test drive via SkiGearTV to see what all the fuss is about.
Proper Japan videos don’t happen without at least :30 seconds of red-faced Monkey footage. Generally in some sort of beautiful natural hot tub. And these guys from NZSkier got it right and provide us with some amazing monkey shots. Oh and they also have beautiful cinematography, super deep pow, and a [gasp!] ACTUAL STORY going on here. Click play and enjoy.
Adam Ü went to Albania, Kosovo and Mt. Baker to ski pow this winter. I, on the other hand went to Mt. Brighton in Southeast Michigan and called myself the “best skier on this mountain”.
Well Played Adam. I think you won this round.
“The Puppet Show 2.2″ is pretty cool in it’s entirety, but if you don’t have 9:00 minutes to spare click straight through to 3:25 and spend the next couple minutes enjoying the sickest night skiing session we’ve seen this year. Dumping snow, big cliffs and what looks like an empty resort looks pretty damn good to me right about now.
We’re stoked that John Spriggs is planning a “12 Edits in 12 Months” project. Those July and August edits should come in handy for a skiing fix when we’re finally ready to trade back to ski boots from flip-flops. The teaser is chock-full of pow, park, cliffs and fun lines. Enjoy!
How many laps can you do on Pali in 10 hours? This video helps give a look into one of Summit Counties coolest events. Held in April, the challenge is simple, spin as many laps as you can on one of the steeper chairs in North America. Between all the mix-tapeish edits its great to see a story told. And this is a good one. Enjoy!
Just what you need as things begin transitioning to spring: 2:00 minutes of some sick top to bottom non-stop AK spines. Thanks Ryan Price. Do you mind dropping another one of these when it’s 100 degrees in the middle of July? My sanity could really use it.
The final installment of Saga’s Volume 4 series brings you to the backcountry of Little Cottonwood Canyon and Mt. Hood. POV is refreshingly absent from this “glitchy” edit, which features a great mix of powder skiing, fun drops and great angles.
