    With the snow nearly nonexistent in Utah we took matters into our own hands and rolled the dice. While Silverton had more snow we had no idea what we were actually going to be in for. With zero support except our sleds and each other we headed to 12,000ft and set up operations. We got lucky when a storm rolled in blanketing the mountains and leaving us unsure as to whether we would be able to make it out due to slides. Here is our story.

        • A Tuckerman Tradition

          Tuckerman Ravine, located on the eastern slope of New Hampshireʼs Mt. Washington, is considered by many to be the epicenter of the New England skiing tradition. For nearly 100 years, people have made their annual pilgrimage to this backcountry skiing destination. Jeff Leich, Executive Director of the New England Ski Museum offers some historical insight: “The first party on skis that thereʼs any record of in Tuckerman Ravine was a Dartmouth Outing Club group in 1913. In the 1930s, ski racing found a home on the mountain and in 1937 the first Giant Slalom in the United States was held in the ravine." What makes Tuckermanʼs Ravine and skiing in the area so special? Why has it remained a rite of passage for so many generations of skiers and backcountry enthusiasts? My premise is that beyond spectacle of the weekend party scene, it is the tradition and link to skiing history that adds to the allure of “Tuckʼs.”

              Synopsis: Vasu Sojitra lost his right leg to a blood infection at 9 months old. Rather than letting his disability define him, Vasu has always treated his amputation as a mere hiccup in life. “Out on a Limb” profiles Vasu's inspiring story and follows him as he ventures deeper into the backcountry to summit peaks, drop into avalanche zones, send cliffs, and ski deep powder lines, all completely unassisted. This outdoor short film leaves audiences wanting more and asks us to reflect on the obstacles in our own lives.

                  A couple of laps on Mt. Seymour (Vancouver) giving the Dyna-teles their shakedown ski. In general, they skied fabulously. They are very active as currently set up. Perhaps too active for my tastes... We'll see how they ski in powder. A fun day out though! As tested: Dynafit Speed toe, Mark Lengel TTS riser/pivot, G3 springs/heels, F1 boots (will also test with TX-Pros) and Head Monster im95 skis.

                    Tested the Sony Action Cam last weekend and smashed the footage together to a single edit. It´s really the first helmet/Action cam that I have used but it felt great and + for the 1/4 camera mount screw. Really liked the 720p/120fps video mode. Settings I used on this edit are 720p/120fps and 720p/60fps Music: Thriftworks - Riding Alone at Dawn (SAB collab)
