Video: Travis Rice’s Mid-Eclipse Kicker Session

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.

Standing at 13.5 thousand feet with @slashdiaz watching the sun disappear up here in Chile was something I won’t soon forget. A ceremony the night before, a shaman told us that a total eclipse has the power of 10 super moons and is a profound time for transition. So, we built a big one. I have never built a jump out of half rocks and snow, but hey, in these high and dry Andes one needs to be resourceful. Going to post up a little edit of our day here shortly. Pretty hard to sum up the experience in words. Just wow... . . . Haters are going to say that UFO bottom left is a lens flare.... . #Chileanmoon #Eclipseoftheheart #Lunarcockblock #itsacoverup #shotinthedark #nofilter #blackholesun #holeinthefire #epicfail

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

LAAX might be best known for its summer park, but it turns out that the Swiss resort offers more than just house-sized booters and step-ups. We have uncovered incontrovertible video evidence that LAAX also plays host to powder—deep powder, at that.  RELATED: Andri Ragettli's Version of Multisporting Looks a Lot Like Candide Parts of the Alps had a ridiculous early and late-season last year, with bottomless powder getting refreshed almost daily.
