No Snow in Tahoe? Here's the solution

A month ago, I posted this video to jinx the lack of snow in Europe. And it worked!

 

So now, I pray this will bring snow this side of the world too... Pass it on!

No snow in Europe? Here's the solution (video)

No snow in Europe? Here's the solution (video) | Freeride skiing | Scoop.it
The warmest weather in half a century means that many European ski resorts are without snow later in the year than any time in recent memory. Some, dedicated skiers are turning to rocks to get their fix.

Recon's MOD looks like an amazing HUD for skiers & snowboarders

Last season, I discovered with amazement these Goggles which integrated an HD camera. They looked pretty cool but soon after, I also discovered the HUD technology - what fighter plane pilots use to keep their eyes up while getting vital navigation info from their instruments - had made it to the ski tracks.


I don't how they compare to Recon Instrument's MOD but I just discovered their video and it looks pretty awesome and amazingly feature-rich.


Time to prepare my list to Santa?

The Freedom Chair

On March 8, 2004 aspiring freeskier and coach, Josh Dueck, awoke from a ski crash to realize life would never be the same. Paralyzed from the waist down, josh made a decision to make the best of a horrible situation. The result is one of the most inspiring stories we've ever seen.

Yep. He has nailed it. This IS freedom. The freedom to explore himself and who he is through his skiing. Incredible.

First snows

First snows | Freeride skiing | Scoop.it

I have a love/hate relationship with the Fall season.


On one hand, you start getting pictures like this with first snows covering the mountains (here the French Alps main resorts); on the other, it's still a couple of months before I can go skiing this year. Excitation and teasing... But also frustration.


Luckily, surfing helps, now that I'm in California.

This is my Winter (full movie)

The trailer was scary. The movie is even scarier.


I like the way Xavier de le Rue puts it, admitting how scared he is (his big fear: the snowpack and you can understand this by watching this). That makes him human... something not obvious when you look at these images.

The Top 5 Powder Destinations in the World Right Now

The Top 5 Powder Destinations in the World Right Now | Freeride skiing | Scoop.it

"If you’re still suffering in the lower 48 there is good news. There are 5 places that are getting it good this year: Japan, Alaska, Europe, British Colombia, & Washington State. "

Just back from the French Alps and this was HUGE. A good winter gets 20' of cumulative snow fall: they already got 10', including 3' in a couple of days while I was there.

 

Needless to say, this was fun :-)

Avalanche Speed Riding - by Antoine Montant

"Awesome footage of Antoine Montant, flying over a huge avalanche on the North face of Aiguille du Midi in Chamonix. This sequence has been awarded by the Best P.O.V Award in Aspen during the latest Powder Video Award !"


Flying over avalanches seems to be the latest trend in the French Alps these days.
