Muyu Juntas’qa

FullCircle Project: Peru Episode Three

Muyu Juntas’qa is the Quechuan word for “Full Circle.” Quechua is the language of the people of Amaru and a language that has been handed down from the time of the Inca. We wrap up our time in Peru with the adobe brick making process and then say goodbye to our new friends. From there, we head to Chile in search of that elusive Andean powder and hit it just right with a storm that dumps a meter of pow onto the crew. Big thanks to Pacha Mama.

Closed-Out and Down: Rails 2 Riches 2012

L.J. Strenio goes back east, wins big

Killington’s Rails 2 Riches is one of the few remaining significant park events on the East Coast. And thanks to its sizable cash purse, it’s the only open event in the East where you’ll find skiers that have flown in from the West. The East Coast homecoming ended up paying off for almost everyone visiting from Salt Lake City. Steve Stepp, Giray Didali, and LJ Strenio, all native East Coasters chasing the dream in the City of the Saints, found themselves on the receiving end of varying amounts of hundred dollar bills after being on the producing end of a heavy barrage of tricks.

A seven-stop East Coast tour filled with skiing, pizza, and prizes

After sustaining a season-ending knee injury in a tragic hopping-over-a-fence accident last year, Andy Parry is back. But you already knew that. In December, the wizard trick master is paying tribute to his East Coast roots by launching the Tell A Friend Tour, a grassroots, seven-stop, camp-vibe journey. Skiers are welcome to meet up with Parry and Traveling Circus veterans Ian Compton, Jack Borland, and Ross Imburgia for shred sessions at local resorts, where they’ll ski for prizes and learn tricks.

For the second episode of the 2012 FullCircle Project in Amaru, Peru, we continue our work building a recycling center.

Our local friend and project co-worker, Eustachio Cruz, offered a blessing for the FullCircle crew on a mountain peak above town.
Check back next week for our third and final episode of the 2012 project in which we say goodbye to our friends in Amaru and head south to Chile in search of snow…

With the guidance of local friends Siggi Jonsson and Runar Karlsson, they traverse the storied landscape via sailboat, kayak, and ski, exploring what it would have been like to survive there for so many generations.
