ESPN Launches Competition to Find Best Big Mountain Ski Resort

ESPN just launched a competition to determine which North American ski resort has the best terrain. Similar to their other "Real" contest in ski and snowboard categories, this will pit seven iconic resorts against each other. The rules are actually pretty awesome, something every core skier and snowboarder can get behind. All of the footage in these videos had to be shot over the 2016/17 winter season and exclusively feature resort-sponsored athletes who ski and ride each resort on a regular basis. Only natural terrain features were allowed (no snowcat-made kickers), and all footage is of places you can get to from the top of a lift.

We have some classic spots battling it out including our home mountain of Jackson Hole Mountain Resort. We may be partial to our backyard hill but there are plenty of rad shred destinations to vote for. 

Voting ends at 9 a.m. PT on Monday, November 13.

This is one of the best articles I have come across. Keep up the good work. Tweakbox Download for iOS

Those spots are so great I would like to skiing there myself.

The Burrrlapz Crew Encounters Car Trouble and Endless BC Pow

Sometimes, a truck breaking down isn't a bad omen, but rather the start to one hell of a trip. That was the case for the Burrrlapz crew in their aptly titled new edit, "Road Trip and Stuff" which begins with the boys watching Dylan Siggers' trusty Ram die an untimely death, only to end with them slaying endless Fernie pow. "Drive far, break our car. Turns out old Megs only had a few hundred K left on 'er, but you know what they say, 'sometimes your truck explodes and you leave it in Golden,'"
