YESTERDAY!! September powder always feels the best. Who cares how deep or how many rocks it's Sept 9th and its one more pow turn than you had on Sept 8th! #silvertonmtn #silvertonmountain #powdersnow #powderskiing #skiing #snowboarding #untracked #heliboarding #heliskiing #snow skier @cdavenski photo @marckloster
With everything going on in the world, there are plenty of folks who'd love to forget about it all and go skiing.

You've likely seen this image circulating on social media, and it turns out it's no photoshopped fake. Patagonia's Public affairs confirmed their sneaky embroidery with a Q&A on the Adventure Journal, stating that you can find the phrase "vote the a**holes out" on a super limited run of the Road to
Say HELL NO to an open pit gold mine on the South Fork of the Salmon River. Meg Matheson photo. Despite being adored by kayakers, rafters, anglers, and hikers, and home to incredible wildlife, Idaho's South Fork of the Salmon River in might be the new home of a massive open-pit gold mine. Two Canadian companies—Midas Gold Corporation and Barrick Gold—are proposing to operate an open gold mine right in the headwaters of the South Fork, risking irreversible damage to this fragile
