Skis. United Nations skis.

Hi! I am from the United Nations. I have a tank, but it is small, white and not scary at all. Honest! I also have skis, beautiful light blue skis.

Seriously though, the UN peacekeeping forces do incredibly important work. I was a bit surprised though that they would have their own special skis, but they do. Cross-country skis, courtesy of the Finnish army's participation in the peacekeeping forces in Macedonia. I acquired a copy and did some testing.

Turns out that they do not slide very well in the heat of the summer. Something about sticky grass. Water helps, but liquid soap helps even more!

Skiers Slides Down the Entire Length of Corbet’s Couloir

We are the Jerry of the Day and Jackass generation, we can't help but look when we see a gnarly crash or the latest post from kook slams. We are not unlike Pavlov's Dog, trained to laugh and giggle at someone else's misfortune. Today, that person is sliding down the entire length of Corbet's Couloir.

"Bluebird. Powder. That's pretty much what we're all chasing," TJ David says in this beautiful short by Kastle Ski of his time sessioning Northern BC with Griffin Post and Skeena Heli.   "It's that combination of light, slope, and location — and the people I'm with," David continues. "When that all comes together, it's really pretty rare. That's when you have that moment that keeps you hooked, that keeps you pursuing the ski thing."

Behind the Scenes of Bobby Brown’s Epic Mammoth One-Shot

One shot edits are all the rage these days. In this one from Bobby Brown, the freeskiing phenom shreds, jibs, and jumps the entire length of Mammoth Mountain. The whole video was shot in one take. Not a bad way to spend a couple of minutes.
