Ståle Sandbech and Friends Get Sendy in NZ

While there are definitely times when you just want to rip some solo laps, snowsports are generally best enjoyed with friends. Ståle Sandbech agrees, as shown in his recent video. Not only does he bring some friends along, he even manages to make some in the terrain park, a notoriously unfriendly place, at least in the Northern Hemisphere. Maybe it's different in NZ, or maybe being an Olympic medalist makes people more willing to be your friend. At least he didn't get called a "kooky little nerd" like I did the last time I tried to make friends in the park at Whiteface.

On July 2nd, 2019, there was a total solar eclipse visible from parts of South America. For most people, simply witnessing such a dramatic astronomic event is good enough. Travis Rice isn't most people, so he headed to Chile to try and capture a mid-totality action shot high in the Andes.

Mark Carter: Why Wyoming Will Always Feel Like Home

Mark Carter: Why Wyoming Will Always Feel Like Home

Is there ever too much of a good thing? Mark Carter would argue no, at least when it comes to being in Jackson, Wyoming for the winter. He’s been snowboarding in these mountains since 2002 and doesn’t plan to stop anytime soon. Sure, snowboarding has been a way for him to explore the world, but nothing seems to top his own backyard—especially when the conditions are off the charts. Aside from two quick trips to Europe, Mark was pretty much hunkered down in Wyoming all winter watching the
