Reject spring. Ski in Pyhä! Party glasses on! Champagne in backpack!
Eric Hjorleifson is pretty much the king of skiing on tech bindings. As a hut keeper in Canada's Esplanade Mountains last year, Hoji had unparalleled access to some of the best human-powered freeride skiing on the planet. By that, we mean dreamy BC faces covered in pillow stacks and spines where he put on a clinic in playful skiing in insanely technical terrain. Now if this high pressure would please end soon…
Trevor Kennison isn’t afraid to go big. But you probably already knew that. The sit skier who became the first adaptive athlete to air into Corbet’s just made history again as he became the first to hit an X Games big air jump. The jump is 70 feet to the knuckle, 80 feet to the sweet spot…and Kennison took it nearly to the parking lot. After coming up a bit short on a practice jump, he took another crack at it and sent it pretty much to flat. Twice. Check it out.
It’s April, so that means ski season is winding down for most of us. But there’s still room for one more freestyle comp – The Nines 2022. Returning to Crans-Montana, Switzerland, for a historic 30th edition of the series, the Nines promises to wow us with ski and snowboard progression like we’ve never seen it before. Check out the course preview with some truly insane features and keep an eye out for more from the competition coming soon!
