Meet the best on-slope food ever: TacoCat

TacoCat
/ˈtakəʊkat/

noun
1. A fun palindrome you use to fool your friends.

2. American punk quartet from Seattle, Washington.

3. The newest on-slope food snowcat at Steamboat, slinging high-altitude Tex Mex, and making me realize that I missed my true calling as the Burrito Bombardier. Damn.

*TacoCat is actually called, “Taco Beast,” but I feel like they might have missed an opportunity there.

Patagonia famously fought with President Trump last year via Twitter, but has chosen to up its game for the mid-term elections. Rocks and votes.

Pro skier turned rapper dies while wing-walking
Freeski daredevil turned rapper Jon James McMurray passed away this week while filming a music video stunt from a moving airplane. According to the Guardian, the 34-year-old was wing-walking on a flying Cessna when the airplane went into a downward spiral. McMurray tried to open his parachute, but was unable to reach it in time. He died on impact. McMurray was known for throwing wild tricks in the park, including the first ever rail to backflip to rail on skis. Our condolences to the McMurray clan.
