The Best Spring Party in The World is At Mt. Bachelor

The Best Spring Party in The World is At Mt. Bachelor

Things are heating up at Bachelor. What if you could spend your days under the sun sipping beer, watching skiers and rider launch hella big air, dancing to good music, and making some turns all at the same time? Well, in Oregon, you can. Enter–Mt. Bachelor’s Sunchaser Spring. Starting in just a couple weeks, the list of events that make up the best spring party in skiing is getting underway. For the skiing, Bachelor has a specific Sunchaser Spring Pass that allows for unlimited skiing and riding from March 30th-May 26th. Nobody does it quite like Bachelor. Saturday March 30th : 10 Barrel Hella Big Air To kick things off the Bend, Oregon-based brewery, 10 Barrel Brewing, sponsors the Hella Big Air event–an epic high-flying (and high-paying) competition to see which rider or skier can send it to the absolute moon. If you’re lucky the sun will be out and, since it’s sponsored by a brewery, you know the beer will be flowing. Saturday April 6th : VertFest 2019 A week later the Central Oregon Avalanche Center, Outdoor Research, Black Diamond, and HydroFlask all come together to put on the country’s ultimate celebration of backcountry skiing and riding. The day includes riding, demos, clinics, food, and a party (obviously), to increase avalanche awareness & training and to get people excited about the back country. Friday April 12 – Sunday April 14th : Gerry Lopez Big Wave Challenge In mid-April it’s time to wax up the board. Though they might not be slashing waves on Oahu, in honor of surfer and Mount Bachelor legend, Gerry Lopez, you can watch snowboarders...
How to Slay Pow Like a Pro

How to Slay Pow Like a Pro

In case you haven’t been paying attention… NOAA, our overlord of weather data, just reported that this winter has been the wettest on record. Ever. People, do you understand? Colorado has avalanches dumping out on the Interstate, California is setting records and staying open until forever, and Wyoming and Montana are worried about radiation from the relentless nuking that’s been taking place on the daily. So with all this pow, how do you slay like a pro? Step 1: Find the Pow. Great. Easy. This year that means walking out the front door step. You don’t even have to break a sweat. If you don’t live close to snow, though, may buy a plane ticket or saddle up the station wagon, but make sure you buy your lift tickets online before you go unless you want to pay full price at the window (yikes). Otherwise you can put your face over a topless blender with ice in it and turn it on. It’s kind of like skiing. Step 2: Grab the Fatties Skis for the Pow Translation: grab the widest skis you can. Skiers and riders have different preferences here, but the word of the day is float — think like a rubber ducky, it’s what you want. The goal here is to, as best as possible, stay on top of the surface of the snow and float effortlessly down the hill. In order to float, though, you need real estate wide enough to keep you on top. So how do you do that? Glad you asked. Fatty Pow Skis — A Crash Course Like I said, this is...
Sun Valley Gets Sendy

Sun Valley Gets Sendy

Sending into the weekend like… Class V rapids? Nah, how about some good old fashioned deep pow. If this video doesn’t get you pumped about the weekend, then maybe you should consider trying it yourself. You might experience a strange feeling of contemplating launching off your roof on a sled, but before you do, perhaps locate yourself in Sun Valley, ID, where you will be met with a much softer landing. (In fact, the mountain has a pretty sizeable storm headed their way next week!). Ironically, Sun Valley is home to the world’s first chair lift. I’m no scientist, but I don’t believe a boat that size would fit on even Big Sky’s 8-person chairlift. Will someone please get some engineers on this idea? Stat!  ...
Mammoth is Staying Open Until July 4th!

Mammoth is Staying Open Until July 4th!

So Mammoth just got 16 feet of snow in 14 days. In case you weren’t sure, that’s a whole cubic dumpage of snow and comes out to average over a foot per day. Just think about that for a second. Got it? Okay. We can thank the atmospheric river that set up shop over California and completely emptied everything it had, bringing feet and feet of snow to the Sierra Nevada range. The additional snow helped build up their prodigious base depth up to 210″ at its deepest point, which makes the mountain boast the deepest snowpack in the nation. All that goes to say that the mountain will remain open for quite some time. https://www.instagram.com/p/Bt1pTi6FhhL/ Now Mammoth is now planning on staying open until at least July 4th. So while everyone else is firing up their weber and hiding firework purchases from their significant others, you could be on the mountain skiing beautiful summer snow, most likely in shorts. You might have half the year to get up to the hill, but the gettin is good now and the powder is flying. Get on it! Buy Mammoth Lift...

5 Ski Resort Instagram Feeds You Need to Follow

Just because you’re at work… doesn’t mean you can’t daydream about snow. Some days you’re on the mountain, and some days you’re stuck in a cubicle thinking about all the things you could be doing. Here’s some of our favorite resort Instagram accounts that might make your office a little less exciting. But day dreaming is healthy, right?   5. Winter Park Resort – Winter Park, CO https://www.instagram.com/p/BtoqfXOH07b/?utm_source=ig_share_sheet&igshid=iy1wu43bsmvx Why we like it: Uhm, is that a gondola homage to NPR’s Tiny Desk Concert Series? Okay that’s cool. Now I’m thinking about riding Winter Park’s new gondola, skiing under golden Colorado sun, and…did someone hear banjo music? Winter Park Lift Tickets   4. Whistler Blackcomb – Whistler, British Columbia https://www.instagram.com/p/BtBnZpyhYMo/?utm_source=ig_share_sheet&igshid=15z1cijm2k8wz Why We Like It: If this picture isn’t evidence enough, Whistler’s IG has some very cool photos that don’t pop up on other mountain accounts. Other photos include sweet angles of a ski patrolers roped up to a helicopter and, a few scrolls later, a skier jumping through a ring of fire. 10/10 would recommend just on creativity value alone.

Sunshine Village – Banff, AB https://www.instagram.com/p/BtpCzrPnGv0/?utm_source=ig_share_sheet&igshid=27347fpgb3ik Why We Like It: Aside from this photo being one of the coolest things we have ever laid our eyes on, the rest of Sunshine’s IG feed lives and breathes beautiful photos of that not-too-shabby Banff landscape. The place really does look like the pictures. Sunshine Village Lift Tickets   2.
