Video: Learn How to Swerve with Magnus Graner

In recent years, a new style of skiing has busted onto the scene. Championed by crews like The Bunch, "swerve skiing" is hot. So, how does one hop on the swerve-train? There are a few easy steps which we will detail for you, our dear readers:

Step 1: Stop taking yourself so seriously. Skiing is fun. You're sliding around on waxy planks, not calculating a rocket's trajectory to Venus. The soul of swerve is messing around and experimenting, so you'll have to leave your ego in the parking lot. A lot of stuff is going to look silly, so you might as well embrace it. 

Step 2: Dress the part. Swerve skiing was pioneered by thick-skinned Scandinavians more likely to wear a ratty hoodie and track pants than next year's Arc'teryx, so cruise on over to your local thrift shop and go wild. 

Step 3: Eat your veggies.

Step 4: Lose your poles. They'll just get in the way. Plus, have you heard of Skier's Thumb? Scary stuff.

Step 5: Practice the "Jump-Swoop-Swerve." As Magnus says, it's the perfect trick to get comfortable with fully utilizing your tips and tails—a very important aspect of the style.

Step 6: Swerve it out. Once you're properly dressed, nourished, and in the correct mindset, the next step is simple: Go skiing. There isn't a well-defined list of tricks that constitute swerving, but if you're feeling stumped just check out Magnus' Instagram

The Freeride World Tour just announced their full 2020 athlete list, and it’s absolutely stacked with 49 of the best freeride skiers and snowboarders in the world.

This crew will be joined by a fresh crop of freeriders, including ski rookies like USA’s Jack and Kevin Nichols. RELATED: Check Out This Full Segment

Video: Lalo Rambaud Goes Freeriding on Slalom Skis

We're used to seeing Lalo Rambaud throwing down on the Freeride Junior Tour, but this is a welcome departure from the norm. Rambaud ditches his long, fat freeride skis for a pair of short and thin slalom sticks, and proceeds to hit many of La Clusaz's classic features. He might not overshadow the Candide edits that made the features famous, but he's 17 and using skis intended to never leave an icy racecourse.  RELATED: Get Tickets to See TGR's on Tour A few creative Youtube commentators have

Climbing and skiing a fourteener is no mean accomplishment, generally requiring a long approach and steep ascent. Doing it twice in two days is just silly. However, Cody Townsend is nothing if not silly, so we shouldn't be surprised that he tried it.  RELATED: The Fifty Ep. 14 - Cody Shralps the Middle Teton Almost there, bud. @bjarnesalen photo.
