Ripping 75mph Winds Strand 130 Skiers on Chairlift in Northern Italy

A surprise windstorm wreaked havoc at Prato Nevoso ski resort in northern Italy on Monday. 

Harrowing winds up to 75 mph derailed a chairlift, leaving 130 skiers left stranded until rescue workers were able to make it to the scene. Luckily, no one was injured. 

All we can say is we hope no one was riding solo on that lift...

This is The Level of Skiing it Takes to Qualify for the FWT

If this is the level of riding we are seeing in Freeride World Qualifier rounds, I can't even imagine what next year’s FWT will look like. The 2017 French Freeride Champion Mickael Bimboes sent his way down a few FWQ rounds, stacking up this footy along the way. Inspired by the likes of Leo Slemett, he managed to qualify himself to ski alongside the big boys next year. Check out his 2017 competition season edit.

According to Red Bull and The Inertia, Rafa Ortiz is officially the first person to send a 70-foot waterfall on a pool toy. Oritz is a super bad ass South American Kayaker who has boated over some of the biggest falls in the world. Maybe his boat was in the shop?

Bernie Rosow Is Still Charging The California Backcountry

Mammoth’s Bernie Rosow yet again shows his ability to slay super-technical ski mountaineering lines. These are the kind of lines that typically require a fair amount of climbing up scary steep snow to even get to, yet Rosow doesn't seem to mind simply pointing ‘em at the top and riding at full speed.Granted, with California’s epic winter and seemingly bottomless snowpack, all these lines are still shredable deep into summer.
