Michelle Parker’s New Web Series Goes Deep Into the Backcountry

In the past 20 years, backcountry skiing has evolved dramatically. For skier Michelle Parker who’s been dedicated to freeskiing since the age of 15, she’s witnessed that evolution throughout the course of her career. Now at the age of 31, she still feels like the only limit is her imagination. Her new web series, Originate, will follow her development as a skier as well as many constantly changing backcountry zones: Japan, British Columbia, and Alaska. Meanwhile, she’s joined by a few familiar faces, our very own Angel Collinson and Elyse Saugstad. The series just dropped and episode one is available now.

Video: Mogul Skier Sends Double to the Moon

Sometimes you accidentally go so big you just gotta tuck for double. Last week, Japanese mogul skier Daichi Hara engaged his rocket boosters during the FIS World Championships in Utah, absolutely sending the second ramp into an unplanned double backie. Of course, he didn’t land it – I mean stomping that big into a stack of moguls would take superhuman strength – but the resulting explosion is worth a watch. We’re glad Hara is ok.

Cody Peak's Central Couloir is one of the gnarlier sidecountry lines accessible from the top of Jackson Hole's tram. Easily visible from the resort, the couloir is ridiculously steep, icy, and terrifying.  Only viable in nearly-perfect conditions, and with severe consequences in the case of a fall, few attempt this Jackson Hole showpiece.  However, on a beautiful spring day in 2017, the Brown Blader made his bid for the couloir's first known snowblade descent.  How did it go?

Video: Veronica Paulsen’s Big Backflip into Corbet’s

Veronica Paulsen is the epitome of tenacity. Despite backslapping her massive backflip into Corbet’s, Paulsen got up, dusted her self off, and went back up the mountain. Unfazed she proceeded to hit it again. She was so close to getting it, but just couldn’t quite stomp it the second time around. Hopefully next year she gets it!
