Video: Tim Durtschi Goes October Skiing on Cody Peak

Finding lift-accessed skiing in early October is tough in the Northern Hemisphere. There are a few resorts open in Europe, but North America's lifts generally don't start spinning until at least mid-October.

We had our camera crew and we were ready to see if Kai could tunnel his way through the deep snow of Japan. Kai already scored some deep days at his home resort of Targhee but would it prepare him for the deepest snow in the world? We would soon find out. Kai and I showed up in Tokyo and

​CAIC Is Asking You to Sign The Pledge – And Win a Free Avy Class

This upcoming winter is going to a weird one. With resort making unprecedented calls to limit numbers to protect guests and employees, we’re almost certainly going to see record numbers of backcountry travelers making turns in the mountains this year. Knowing that, stepping into the backcountry will come with some elevated risks this year, and the Colorado Avalanche Information Center is asking all backcountry users to “take the pledge” and make sure to check the forecast each and every
