Procrastinators Corner, Ski / 29.06.2015

National Geographic teamed up with skier Griffin Post for a magnificent drop. Post and crew started at 2 a.m. on what will become a 7 hour ascent to the exposed summit of the middle Teton, in Grand Teton National Park, Wyoming. Post starts his way down at the 12,804 ft summit down towards a no fall zone, then down 2,500 feet to the drainage below. Making that 7 hour trip up, back down in less than a minute. This descent is a great feat and...

I know Gaper day was a couple of weeks ago. April 1st for those who are new to this hip jargon. It's a day for people to have silly fun on the mountain traditionally wearing silly outfits and just having a good time. Here is Copper Mountains' Gaper Day festivities. It's not everyday you see a taco coming down the slopes. But who am I to judge? Taco's are awesome! Edit originally posted by ATATfilms YouTube channel. ...

This is the best thing you'll see this week. That is unless you've already seen it. I don't even know what to call this!? Competitive figure skiing? Doesn't matter. Sign me up! This was uploaded March 3rd by Spot Digger on Facebook. If you're a skier chances are you've already seen this. If so, watch it again, and again and again. I have a new aspiration in life. It's to bring this back! Who's coming with me!? How is this not in...

Back on the 30th of December year 2014 3 riders took to the snow. They yearned for a day of fresh powder and what they encountered was something that I have not seen in a while. Powder so deep Adele would roll in it. Like when you're a kid and you jump into the pool into the deep end and your friend asks, " How deep is it?" and you reply " It's awesome! Jump in!" That's what these three skiers were able to do. ...

Depending on who you are, this is probably not the same person you may think it is. The 23 year old Bobby Brown of Colorado has taken every little step to solidify himself as a professional skier. Becoming the first person to win 2 gold medals in the same X Games is definitely good enough to make that point. Don't be cruel to this young skier, he's one of the first to land multiple variations of the triple flip or triple cork in California. It's gonna...

Here in the PNW we've been waiting for a day like this group of friends had. When I first showed this edit to Jin next to me he was like Can't blame the guy. I do love how this group of friends are just super stoked and high fives all around. It's a good change of pace from all the edits of solo riders show boating. Well maybe now the green eyed monsters got me a little bit. Anywho, here's the edit that YouTube user JHaller had posted of...
