    Cheaper and lower consequence than a shattered tib-fib but still not something I like to do if I can avoid it.

    Since Cody fancies himself a tinkerer, perhaps he can develop some ski anchor prototypes for managing speed through those trails and dedicate an episode to trying them out.

    About 20 years ago I was in France watching a rando race, the Miage-Contamines-Somfy for anyone who may remember such obscurities. The terrain was rowdy as hell with the last run down a steep face choked up with rocks and a narrow-ish couloir, all in horrendous windboard. The racers were on absolutely unskiable light gear (Dynastar Altiplume anyone?) and made it look like a complete battlefield.
    The winning team sent the couloir by sticking both poles between their legs, leaning back as far as they could, and straight-lining with reckless abandon. They were a lot faster than the rest of the pack but significantly slower than I'd have expected from just the effect of pole drag (he). They called that move la sorciere (the witch) since they both looked like witches riding their brooms.

    Now think of the possibilities when you're rocking 2 whippets...

    Great article posted about Cody from Powder magazine. Guess it ran in an earlier issue for those of u-like me that don’t subscribe...

    Ps-Liked the 3D google earth graphics in the last episode showing the approach and descent. Editing game and music was noticeably stepped up too. Went from A+ to AA+ nice work Bjarne and Cody!

    Yes! Huge addition to the episodes. Previous episodes had some pics or visuals, but I didn't feel like it was consistent. This is a cool little addition to give context to the line itself and the approach, etc. Please keep doing this Cody+Bjarne

    That's just a normal run on the east coast. Razor your edges and throw in some pizza turns when necessary.

    Completely agree. Ignore those fools on your social media post asking for feedback who said it looked cheesy. It was great and they’re just flat out wrong.

    I suggest throwing in some pizza tuck with ass-in-the-air turns. Maybe ski out the hiking trails in jeans and gaiters, too.

    Oh yeah, I take everything with a grain of salt and also like what I like so I generally just try to weigh feedback on a group scale and see if I can read between the lines on what's good or bad. The VFX Maps will be integrated into every episode from here on out. It was one of those 'read between the lines' feedback I synthesized last season.

    That most recent one was my favourite so far. Seems like something even I could handle!

    I enjoy watching the journey up the most. I can't believe how much planning and work it must take just to make a 20 minute youtube vid. Dedicated.
