Video: Rope Drop at Fernie is Complete Mayhem

Watching this rope drop at Fernie Alpine Resort feels uncannily like an animal segment straight from the BBC. For a second the mayhem resembles a bunch of frothing hyenas about to strike out in the Serengeti—all it needs is that David Attenborough voiceover. I’m sure no slope was safe after that crowd had its way with it.

Kidding, kudos to everyone getting after it. But if this craziness isn’t your style, thankfully, Fernie’s got four other bowls to pick from. 

There is a spot off Spanky’s Ladder up on Blackcomb where the reason the patrol rope it off is because it can bury you.  It is a hole you can’t see when it dumps pow.  Rare for Blackcomb, but it happens.  There is also “Australian Gully” on Cypress Bowl; this is where some rope jumpers died due to a creek bed funnel that was another hole.  That one is out of bounds for a reason, off the peak chair and I used to dread hearing a response to my rope patrol shout outs on Sunday night shutdown. Luckily only silence was the response.  I was the last one down the hill on most weekends, in the seasons I was on the volunteer patrol; moonlight and twinkling city lights with the silence of the chairs turned off made up for the wet, rainy, unpaid nights.  Next life I will go pro patrol.

A good practice is necessary to do things like this. The person doing should need to handle the climate with their medical condition photo clipping service . Many peoples like to follow the ride. The ride is dangerous so need to be very careful.

Peep These Hidden Gems in Whistler

We all hear legends of the Whistler backcountry. Endless cold smoke pow, bluebird days, big lines, epic trees, you name it. Just like any good ski spot, Whistler has its secret stashes that only a select few get to ski every year. This spot in the Callaghan Valley meets all those criteria for the perfect backcountry cache. In their new film, Head Freeskiing shows all the glory of the old growth forest surrounding the Journeyman Lodge. Skiers Riley Leboe and Ian Morrison call Whistler home and

The Athlete Edits: Nick McNutt

I think we can all agree that Nick McNutt is one of the most fun skiers to watch in the world. Whether it’s dropping unfathomably tall pillow stacks, spinning off cliffs, or landing backwards in pow on his Atomic Bent Chetler 120s, he makes it all look easy. It’s probably the years of experience he’s gained in the type of terrain that encourages that kind of skiing, or maybe it’s some sort of god-given talent. But either way, we’re always fired up for McNutt to be a part of our team. This

Bobby Brown reminds us once again that he's a master of all ski disciplines. One week, he’s hucking features in the backcountry, the next, he’s showing us his skills in the park. This top-to-bottom park edit of Bobby has us googly-eyed over his hand drags and 540’s. Seems like a bluebird day riding rails at Breckenridge is just what the doctor ordered for those early season blues, and Bobby Brown is serving it up.
