Now you know. This dude had a lengthy writeup of what happened…if you’re interested in reading it, it’s after the jump. Continue reading
If you’re dumb enough to go for a triple backflip….this is how you do it.
ps. Is this guy laughing or crying at the end?
Our first post was Sean Pettit absolutely shredding, and I think it’s about time we see some more of him.
Some sick backcountry shredding for you on Christmas day.
“These bindings suck.”
Any laughs? Unfortunately I can’t take credit (besides being the source of that hilarious gem, check the link for great info on telemarking, too.)
While telemarkers may be the victims of a bearded-hippie-stoner stereotype, their sport is seeing yet another revival in the new millenium. Not to be confused with telemarketing (those goddamn phone solicitors), telemark skis are arguably more versatile in the Backcountry. Besides the painful side effect of constant quad burn, Telemark skiing actually looks like one hell of a fun time from this trailer:
But before you make it your New Years resolution to ditch the alpine skis and switch to three-pins, think about what you could end up looking like:
Nothing wrong with that, right? Alright then, go for it. Buy your heart out and while you’re at it, buy a slice from your local dealer too. You’ll probably need it.
Just some chill Whistler cat skiing with some cool gopro shots.
Trevor Thomas, a Wyoming native, tearing up the Jackson Hole backcountry. (it’s best if you listen to the video muted and put your own music to it)
I might suggest tossing this on:
Jacob does a lot of flat 3′s and some filthy doubles in the CO and BC backcountry. Landing in pow can look soft and easy, so the tomahawk at 1:40 reminds you what happens when you’re too front-seat.
Some awesome pillows and a cray cray Breckinridge sideways-ish quarterpipe jump at 0:45 that I’d love to see more shots from. Also I love how P-white shreds park on fat pow skis (Rossi S6s i think?). My deepest apologies for the song.
Synchronized freestyle is pretty pants.
