Pow-Pocalypse Part Two: An Avalanche of Skiers and Snowboarders

There's no forgetting that footage of the vicious mob flooding towards the lifts at Alpine meadow from last week. If you wondered what it looks like when that frothing pack of powder hungry riders finally hits the slopes, look no further: A Reddit user has uploaded a clip of a slope at the resort going from untouched to completely tracked out in under a minute.

The madness is documented from a witness riding the lift above. Apparently patrol had just opened Scott’s Chair, which was packed with fresh snow for the eager weekend crowd. After this stampede ravaged the slope, we'd be surprised if there’s even a base layer left.

Since then the ski has taken on several new forms, but the basic design (a fat, playful twintip pow ski inspired by Benchetler’s desire to surf and butter down mountains) has never changed.

Once again, Aymar Navarro manages to blow our minds with his ability to find yet another super sick line in South America, and absolutely style it. This time, Navarro and filmmaker Txema Trull send it down the Punta Balcón on Chile’s Cajón del Maipo. While we know that music was added after the fact, it’s almost as if Navarro and Trull are truly dancing their way down the never-ending line. Nice work! RELATED: Aymar Navarro Rips the Real C
