Blast From the Past: This 1985 Newscast of Skiers Hating on Snowboarders is Absurd

It's pretty crazy to see a bit of what it was like to be a snowboarder back in the day, before it was fully 'accepted' as a respected snowsports discipline (at least in Canada...). And now, how far it has come.

The sport has progressed from being an activity that, according to this newscast, was performed by "a bunch of smart alecs lipping off" to being a valued sport practiced by some of the best athletes in the world (who, let's be honest, still probably 'lip off' from time to time). 

Just another California fad.

Once again, Aymar Navarro manages to blow our minds with his ability to find yet another super sick line in South America, and absolutely style it. This time, Navarro and filmmaker Txema Trull send it down the Punta Balcón on Chile’s Cajón del Maipo. While we know that music was added after the fact, it’s almost as if Navarro and Trull are truly dancing their way down the never-ending line. Nice work! RELATED: Aymar Navarro Rips the Real C

Chris Benchetler Celebrates 10 Years of the Atomic Bent Chetler Ski

There are few skiers in the industry that have been as influential as the soft-spoken, pow-slaying, ski design mastermind that is Chris Benchetler. 10 years ago, he was first presented with the opportunity to design and build a pro-model ski for Atomic.

The action sports world is full of parallels, and

Far Out Places: Fear and Loathing in Girdwood, Alaska

Gathering my bags in Anchorage airport, food poisoning announces its arrival over the loudspeaker. It seems Glenfiddich has lost the war with an airport lounge chicken curry. Shame. I quickly pen a savage online review for Singapore Airlines to ponder before breaking the 100 meter dash record. Graciously the beast in my bowels didn’t appear mid-flight. And they say, chivalry is dead. Many unpleasant stops for roadside prayers later we reach Angel Collinson’s house and I slump into bed for a
