Video: All the Winning Runs from FWT20 Fieberbrunn

After Andorra's questionable snow and difficult visibility, this weekend's Freeride World Tour stop in Fieberbrunn, Austria was a breath of fresh air. The snow was deep, the sun was bright, and the riders weren't holding back.

Craig Murray won the Ski Men category with a frankly absurd run, somehow managing to keep his feet under him throughout his numerous tricks and drops. Having taken a scary crash last year on the same face, we're stoked to see Craig showing what he's capable of. He was joined on the podium by Isaac Freeland (second place) and fellow Kiwi Hank Bilous (third place).

Murray's win puts him in fourth place on the overall leaderboard, behind Isaac Freeland, Kristofer Turdell, and Andrew Pollard.

In the Ski Women category, Arianna Tricomi snagged the victory with a stylish run that included a quick 360 and a few grabs. By all appearances, her ankle is back to nearly 100%, which is great news with the season's finale coming up in a couple of weeks. She currently sits atop the overall rankings, closely followed by Hedvig Wessel and Jaclyn Paaso.

The Snowboard Men took two runs in order to make up for the cancellation in Andorra, and Nils Mindnich won both. Gaining 20,000 points in a single day put him easily atop his category's leaderboard, nearly 10,000 points ahead of Victor de le Rue, who sits in second.

With such a solid lead, he's got a great chance of taking the overall title, but nothing is guaranteed until Verbier.

Marion Haerty took the win for the Snowboard Women, as she often does, clinching her category's overall title regardless of what happens in Verbier. She has now won the FWT three times in five years—a pretty solid record.

Thanks for sharing this information. I love this blog.

Global Pollution Levels Have Dropped with the COVID-19 Pandemic

Global Pollution Levels Have Dropped with the COVID-19 Pandemic

Here’s one silver lining from the current COVID-19 crisis: global pollution levels are decreasing. Considering that most work and travel has ground to a halt, it’s not a surprise that air pollution and CO2 emissions have dropped off as well. This change is most noticeable in major cities like New York City, which currently resemble eerie ghost towns due to strict social distancing measures. Columbia University found that carbon monoxide emissions have dropped 50% alone this week for NYC.

VIDEO: COVID-19 is Turning Jackson Into a Ghost Town

It’s rare to see Jackson Hole empty. The town is typically alive with tourists and locals teeming through the streets. But now with COVID-19, the town of Jackson is joining the effort to slow the spread of the disease by hunkering down. These days, the town is starting to feel more and more like the old west days—except no horse and buggy.

Cody Townsend is Taking COVID-19 Seriously. So Should You.

The latest episode of The Fifty Project doesn’t feature any epic mountaineering, face shots, or Cody Townsend scaring the sh*t out himself. Instead, it’s a reality check. COVID-19 has turned our world upside down, and it’s time to reassess what matters most right now. For Townsend, that means halting a project he’s devoted his life to, so he can stay at home and keep the disease from spreading. If Townsend can lay low right now, so can you.
