   The Fantastics aka. Cody Townsend and Elyse Saugstad are just that when it comes to shredding big mountain lines and recording casual conversations.  In this episode we chat about the fear of skiing those big lines,  the SAFEAS avalanche clinics for Women, neck beards, football, public intoxication tickets and more. I’m sure this could have been the second two part episode...

Not every day in the backcountry is filled with intensity. In this episode of Almost Live, Nick McNutt and Tim Durtschi session a kicker in the backcountry south of Jackson, Wyoming.  And although they spend ample time throwing down tricks, they spend just as much time roaming around in the middle of nowhere and having fun.

Aw, the winter life of a child in Jackson Hole. Wake up, ski powder with your friend, bet him that he can't flatspin off a rock, fall with no regrets while learning new tricks because the snow is soft and your bones are rubber, and then head home to a fresh home-cooked meal. Life is good.

Listen up everyone! It's time once again for the Salomon Community Night at the GLC in Whistler. This is the fourth one of the year.  The party's been going off for our last three nights. But our video submissions have been, well, lacking.   Not that the edits are bad. The last winning video was AWESOME! But we're only getting five or six submissions per night.  This means that...

Deep in the throes of snow deprivation, I'd taken to wearing my goggles to cut onions. I wore my toque in the bath and even spent a day clunking around the house in my ski boots until I decided that when you start looking crazier than the homeless dudes on San Francisco’s Market St, there's something wrong. But this was all totally necessary; I’d relocated from the depths of Whistler to sunny,...

This wicked little slice of ski history accompanied an awesome article on Aspen, Colorado's ski scene in the early 70's . This footage is the real deal, with some of our community's original ski bums bucking the system, shredding pow and pioneering the lifestyle that so many of us enjoy today. So here's a chance to bone up on your history folks, maybe learn a new move or two for the next...

"Blackout showcases bottomless pow in Revelstoke as well as steep lines in Alaska. The action is complemented nicely by a narrative that describes an experience with a season-ending injury." - from DRFTWD
