    WROD Radness - 12/4/12-12/15/12

    Alright. Here's the first topic, have at it...

    It's early season and you are either feasting on pow or hitting the groomers to make the most of what you have. To give our snow starved friends a chance to play in this first round, post up your best photo of dominating the White Ribbon of Death. Snow gun jibs, vapor spraying, hyper carving all come into play here. Let's see how rad/creative you can get with the limited offerings a groomer provides. Winner gets a Smith goggle/helmet/sunglass kit and is entered to win an all expense paid trip for two to Sun Valley, ID where they will be able to ski with a Smith Ski Athlete via chairlifts and helicopter. This topic starts 12/4/12 and ends 12/15/12 at 11:59 PM MT.

    Hey everybody,

    For those of you that dont know, I work here at Smith Optics and I just want to take this opportunity to say thanks for all of the support over the years. We are stoked to get this contest rolling so we can generate some good content for these boards and give you guys the chance to win some quality gear. The skiing here in Sun Valley is off to an amazing start with awesome conditions so this Grand Prize trip is shaping up to be a good one. We cant wait to have the winners come up here and tap into this awesome scene, we will show you a good time no doubt.

    lets see what kind of images you can produce from the WROD and lets get this party started.

    I'd post up a photo, but we already have a midwinter base (70inches) here at Whistler, so faceshots probably don't count. This one gonna have an actual winner or will it end like the maggot POV contest? Just sayin...

    if you are blessed without having to ski groomers right now then keep in mind we are having a Best Powder and Best Cliff Huck so you can display how lucky you and Whistler are in the coming weeks, I just wanted to level the playing field and include our less endowed friends for this first round.

    Hell yeah we are going to pick a winner, we sent The Gnarwhale to Antarctica with the last contest we held. I dont know what happened with the maggot POV contest, someone care to fill me in?

    While out there ripping the strip I find that my legs aren't in great shape, and turning is tough! I don't take those silly ski fitness classes pre-season, I ski myself into shape, and during this time of year I'd rather just point em downhill. "Do you know how fast you were going, sir? Hold on, we'll tell you." | View Entry Page

    This was an amazing day up at Whistler. With the sun out, it was super balmy, which made for a wonderful day on the groomers for five of us girls skiing/riding in bikini tops. | View Entry Page

    White Ribbon Of Death!!! Nothing says early skiing like the cold Northeast... Here is an excellent example of what the eastern skier has to contend with while regaining our mountain legs. Sure the sun looks great, and it is, if you close your eyes and remove your helmet for an early season face tan. What you see in this picture is 100% coverage the entire length of Killington's RIME trail, directly under the North Ridge Triple chair. What you don't see is the "hike" that is necessary for us to perform (down from the K1 to the trail and up from the top of the chair back to the K1 to download). So in short, we get to hike DOWN to the trail, ski under the guns, ride up over the guns (causing icing issues on your bases), and as a bonus.... Hike back UP to download. SKI THE EAST!!!

    No white ribbon of death, just a pilgrimage to a classic early season destination

    WROD? More like With Rad Older Dude. WTF! I turn my back to get beers and my girl is off with Captain Powder skiing to some Warm Springs and then to get Cozy… I might as well pull a Hemingway and off myself via Gun Tower or drown in Lower River. That is, unless there’s a heli day in my future – help make my grey days better! | View Entry Page
