Sony Adds Tim Durtschi to Action Cam Team

Tim Durtschi has been pushing the frontier of backcountry freestyle longer that almost anyone out there. From his groundbreaking switch skiing in 44 Days to his double cork over Chad's Gap in 2010 to his podiums at Red Bull Linecatcher, Tim has been able to successfully meld two genres of skiing - freestyle and big mountain - like few others. His career didn't slow down this past year at all, either, as his closing segment in Way Of Life won him a Best Male Performance from the Powder Video Awards. From AK to Austria and back, Tim showed his genius in freestyle-able terrain as much as in no-fall straight-line chutes.

Court okays development of controversial Jumbo ski resort on sacred BC land

Flickr The Supreme Court of Canada ruled Thursday that building a year-round ski resort on lands considered sacred by the indigenous Ktunaxa Nation does not violate religious rights, per a report by the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation (CBC).

Parker White is Silently Crushing the Backcountry

Parker White is Silently Crushing the Backcountry

  Parker White is a force in skiing. His style was forged over many years and disciplines, from formative turns in Vermont’s mountains to terrain park and urban destruction and the recent and seemingly endless powder quest. He jokes that he chose this path at age nine. He didn’t know it at the time, but he truly did. Life ever since has been centered on skiing. He moved out west at the age of sixteen with the permission of two very supportive parents, who both have deep roots in the snow.
