Its that magical time of year again. No, I’m not talking about the Holidays, I’m talking about the time of year when people from all walks of life put their “normal” ambitions on hold, grab life by the balls and move to a ski town. It gives me chills just thinking about it. As the slew of Subarus, 4Runners, Tacomas and Xterras all dawning out of state plates and packed to the gills begin to show up in ski towns everywhere, we thought back to our first winters in a ski town and realized there is a bunch of shit we wish we knew. Whether you are a recent college grad or a cube dweller who just couldn’t take it anymore (or something in between) check this out and curtail that learning curve of being a freshmen in a mountain town…
Right outside of Salzburg, Austria lies the favorite zone of skier Matthias Mayr. Tune into episode 4 of Another Day in Paradise as Matthias, Tom Leitner and Sebastian Fischer shred gorgeous line after gorgeous line.
If you weren’t paying attention to the edits in the TGR Co-Lab, take a look at one of our favorites from Montana skier Randy Evans. Part of the Bridger Brigade crew, Randy absolutely slays it. Tune in for your evidence:
With winter looming ahead and snow falling out the window right now in Jackson Hole, it may seem strange that a park based edit from the summertime on Mt. Hood has us so fired up. But there’s something about the way that Sammy skis that has us ready to spend a little more time in the park this season. When it’s not snowing, anyways…
This will be the best thing you watch all day. Via Salomon: In the mid 1800′s, BC’s mountain towns boomed as prospectors flocked north during the great gold rush. Josh Daiek, Mike Henitiuk & Kieran Nikula arrive 150 years later in search of their own fortune.
Lynsey Dyer has been on the scene now for the better part of a decade. Seven years ago she put together an edit that propelled her from the shadows to full time pro. This is the life changing edit that changed her life forever. In her words “all I did was put all my stuff in one place for sponsors to see”. The rest, as they say, is history…
Nimbus has released a trailer to their new web based series. Set to a slow piano instrumental, this is a ski flick that has more of an art-house feel to it than the got-to-the-zone-and-sent-it feel of old. Sort of reminds us of the quiet days in the midst of winter. Or something like that.
JP Auclair & Tom Wallisch Street segment from into the mind. We’ve also included the JP Auclair street segment from Sherpa’s prior movie, All.I.Can. So, we ask you guys/gals in the audience. Which was better?
The Feltons are back with a new Run Around webisode. Not a lot of backstory here but if you are into top notch big mountain sled skiing, check this out.
Ryan Hawks was a great skier and an even better human being. Ryan passed March of 2011 doing what he loved most, skiing. Considering its Ryan’s birthday today, we felt there was no better time to honor the life of one of the most passion-ed humans to ever click into skis. Happy Birthday Ryan!
