1. Hellbent on backcountry skiing, brothers Mike & Andy Traslin have been earning their turns every month of the year for the last 95 months in a row. They're not alone, especially in the Pacific Northwest where a string of glaciated volcanoes make it pretty reasonable to score turns any time of the year. Sometimes it pours rain, sometimes it's so damn hot you're regretting not being at the beach. But in Mike's words "It's always worth it."

    There we sat, perched amid the most beautiful ski lines in the region. They were so close you could poke a stick at them, yet most were still out of safe reach. It was April 30, the sun's heat was raging, and we literally watched the end of winter 2013/14 in real time, high def. What was steep and deep winter snow only days earlier was oozing into summer schmoo chunder balls faster than we could scope safe lines to ski. Well, faster than most of us, but not faster than James McSkimming. Skim was ready for battle.
