Watch: It’s a Pow-Pocalypse at Alpine Meadows

Californians have officially lost their shit. Just one week after video emerged of the madness of a rope drop at Snowbird in Utah, skiers and snowboarders in the Golden State upped the ante as a stampede of crazed skiers and snowboarders rushing towards the chairlifts at Alpine Meadows this past weekend. It's like an unstoppable Black Friday mob, except instead of chasing after discounted iPads the masses were running to 63 inches of fresh snowfall.

Honestly, I don’t blame them, it’s been pretty rough for the Sierra this year. After such an epic winter last season, this year’s snowpack has been at a quarter of it’s normal level before this most recent dumping.

That dramatic difference is enough to drive any sensible person into a powder-crazed state. So Californians—enjoy your much deserved snow—but please don’t trample the person in front of you trying to do so. 

This is one of the best articles I have come across. Keep up the good work. iOS 12 Features

Amidst World Cup Fever, Here’s Our Favorite Soccer Moment

What do you get when you put a soccer net at the base of a jump and give a ball to a group of Norwegian freeskiers? The most epic combination of skiing and soccer we've seen. While the soccer we’re used to watching is played on a flat pitch, we prefer this take on the sport. Filmed in Geilo, Norway, a group of seven skiers had a classic 3-v-3 tournament...except there was only one goalie. And no referee. And it was played on snow. Skiing park is hard enough, now imagine punting a ball with
