Biking to the hill… in ski boots

This morning I woke up and asked myself what would be the most stupid thing I could do today. Can you bike to a ski hill, on your ski boots? Turns out the answer is yes. Although maybe not advisable...

But, I forgot to take my poles. Duh.

FWT Skier Wadeck Gorak Goes Full Send

At some point, something went egregiously wrong for the Swedish freeskier as she attempted this unforgiving cliff band. After tomahawking down the slope, it’s a miracle that she only walked away with a broken wrist and few scratches.

Aymar Navarro Skis Pinner Couloir, Does Not Give Up on Winter

This winter has been quite the season for Spain’s Aymar Navarro, including stacking results on the Freeride World Tour, skiing huge lines all over the Alps, and skiing as much powder as possible. We all probably know him best from his South Lines web series, climbing and skiing couloirs in the southern hemisphere, all while we spend our days at the beach or on our bikes. This year, he plans on doing the same, but wanted to take advantage of one more powder day in Europe before packing up and
