VIDEO: Ian Compton, a Weak in the Woods

On chickens, pizza blackouts, edits, and summer skiing

When Compton finally woke from his pizza party pandemonium (and after a bit of dirt biking around the backyard), he had a few things to say about chickens, edits, and summer skiing.


Arc’Teryx Alpha2 FL Shoes — Junk In The Trunk

New kicks to match your jacket

Arc’teryx, which never does anything half-assed, is now making shoes and all signs point to the same kind of manufacturing and design quality we’ve come to expect from the company. We recently got a first look at these kicks during an unveiling last month in Chamonix, France, and left wanting a pair, stat (they officially hit stores for Spring/Summer 2015).

Friends and Kiwis Sam Smoothy and Fraser McDougall explore the NZed backcountry

Best Ski Edits, Week of July 18

Water jumps, Tanner Hall, park shoot at Mount Snow, and a doc on urban skiing

A solid mini documentary on urban skiing and night jibbing. T Hall shreds the last bits of snow in Nor Cal. Inspired takes on Mount Snow in the Style Files. Give me a cold lake, a water ramp, and a pair of skis and I’ll call that a perfect afternoon.


Chilean Freeskiing Championships Kicks Off Freeride Series

First event out of five runs August 20-25 at El Colorado, Chile, on Santa Teresa venue

Video: Long Live Glacier (and Grass) Season

Adrian Dingle skis everything from rock to water in his summer edit

Just in case you were wondering, even when the thermometer reads 70 degrees, the stoke is alive and well. Want proof? Check out this edit from Adrian Dingle. As a messenger from the ski gods, Dingle came forth and shows us that the will to shred has not been forgotten. Sure, his skis probably got a healthy dose of core shots from jumping over boulders, and yeah, he ate it while skiing over grass. Regardless, Dingle has the right idea. When summer comes around, put on a short-sleeve T, hike up a glacier, pond-skim your way down, and make a reggae-infused edit to show for it. Winter has passed for now, but skiing always lives on. Now shred on, shredawons.


Junk In The Trunk: Marine Layer

A non-technological San Francisco start-up

Every spring I reluctantly throw away favorite T-shirts. Cotton alone does not stand the test of time. Enter Marine Layer, a San Francisco-based clothing company. Like many Bay Area start-ups, Marine Layer began by solving a problem—replacing that old worn-in-just-right T after it gets tossed into T-shirt Heaven.
