Troy Podmilsak, a 12-year-old from Utah, just dropped a season edit that rivals those released by skiers more than twice his age. Troy, who goes by TPOD, can throw flawless double and triple flips, along with spins and grabs that pretty much no one else even close to his age can pull off. He’s also the youngest skier ever to successfully land a triple cork 1440 - three flips and four 360 spins all in one jump. This kid is nothing short of incredible, and we can’t wait to see where he goes.

Loveland Ski Area shared the above video of Bo the Patrol dog practicing lift evacuation at the mountain and we can definitively say that Bo is the easily the cutest patrol dog we've seen since Truckee the avy dog showed off his sliding skills at Heavenly. Look at how furiously Bo's tail is wagging, and then try to attack the last two days of your work week with the same enthusiasm that Bo does.
