A Female Wolf Pack

Rachael Burks’ new site is a way for female athletes to gain exposure

Rachael Burks wants to be one of the wolves running with other wolves.

Two summers ago, laid up with an ankle injury and trying to make money for her next winter of filming, she got pissed off at the pay-to-play paradigm of ski movie appearances.

“My ski sponsor pulled out of the film company I was working with, so I had to get together $10,000 to film with them,” she says. “I thought, ‘that’s the only way for me to advance my career. Gosh, if I don’t make one of these movies, I’m backsliding.’”

MSP’s “Counting up to 20″ Episode 19

Chatter Creek in Attack of La Niña

Richard Permin, Sean Pettit, and Jacob Wester stumbled on surprisingly epic conditions during a late-season visit to Chatter Creek, B.C., in 2011. The resulting footage added up to one of the most exciting segments in ATTACK OF LA NINA, but all other shots were eclipsed by the two most impressive lines of the trip. The spines featured at the end showcased the prowess of both Pettit and Permin in the most challenging terrain that Chatter has to offer.

Eight-Minute Abma

Mark Abma's athlete edit from MSP's Superheroes of Stoke

There are skiers that are highly-skilled athletes and then there are skiers like Abma that make everything look easy, accessible, and fun. Because, you know, those cork 7′s in the middle of AK lines are totally doable in the mind of every 13 year old. And this 27 year old. “Let’s go skiing!” is what these annual MSP re-edits make me say. Hell, it’s probably time to stomp that 720. You should too! Thanks for the inspiration Abama and MSP.*

The Base Grind: December 23

So, we survived the apocalypse

It’s become apparent that the world did not end on Friday, and the ski season can carry on as it has. Discovering that their new terrain had not in fact imploded in a sea of fiery volcanoes and locusts, Sugarloaf decided to open Bracket Basin after 31” of snow on Saturday.

The New York Times Reports on Stevens Pass Avalanche

Extensive and innovative story on tragedy last February in Washington's Cascades

My heart aches too much to articulate my thoughts and feelings about this 18,000-word feature on a story so close to me. But you, the powder skier, should read it. Make your friends and loved ones read it. Because despite the group’s collective ski and avalanche safety experience, we lost three tremendous friends. If you’re a passionate skier and like to venture out to the backcountry, please educate yourself with an avalanche awareness class of some kind. It could save your life and those close to your soul. My heart goes out to the friends and families of Johnny Brenan, Jim Jack, and Chris Rudolph.—John Stifter
