As the high pressure sets in once again in northern Utah, I can’t help but to look back to two weeks ago when the “free refills” at Alta Ski Area were endless on a sleeper powder day.
Great days with friends.
A quick edit of chasing Todd Ligare around on “High Rustler.”
Although the winter is slowly making itself know here in the Wasatch (60 degrees and sunny in December seems more like mountain biking weather) it has been great to get out and make some early season turns at Alta Ski Area.
It is even more of a nice start when you land a cover in a publication highlighting your last seasons hard work. I couldn’t be anymore stoked to see this image taken by photographer Adam Barker on the front of the Mountain Collective. Be sure to grab one off the news stands today!
People ask me all the time, “Lib-Tech makes skis?!” “Are they good?!”
Well of course they are the best, and thats why I season after season strap them to my feet.
But what is even more impressive about Lib-Tech/Mervin is their manufacturing process…and yes, they are made in the USA.
Rest in Peace Jay Adams.
Your drive and attitude changed the world.

And so it begins. Off to Europe we go.

Watching this will make you second guess your decisions in life. 13 years old and can educate and out speak the masses. I am proud to know this little adult.
I can relate, can you? A must watch. Rodney Mullen’s words are as graceful as his skating.
What an amazing night for an amazing friend…Thank You Shane.

I have been playing for a few years now with a couple different wing suits; S-Fly Expert, Phantom 2, Vampire, and some others, but recently I acquired a Squirrel Colugo and I couldn’t be more stoked on it!
Mike Steen and Matt Gerdes have been busting their butts to make an amazing “do all” suit, and they have succeeded to do so. Can’t wait to get this thing to Europe for some serious flying. Until then, airplanes, helis and hot air balloons will have to do!
Yes the suits are constructed with care and are top notch and the flights are amazing, but get this, they even have FiveTen Stealth Rubber soles! Applause Squirrel!
The boys at Squirrel just dropped the video for their new suit, the Aura. Check it out.
Getting back on the mountain bike has been so rewarding this summer, minus the fact that it has been on e the hottest summers on record here in Utah. With that said, I am counting down the days till autumn, and cannot wait for the cooler weather.
Until then, I will be “sweatin’ to the oldies” and hammering out miles on the amazing Utah XC, DH and road biking rides in the SLC area. Except for the road spinning miles, the FiveTen Minnaar’s are my go-to shoe weapon of choice, and the most badass shoe to have on your feet for XC and DH! Thanks again 5.10!
100 degrees. Perfect spinning weather.
Cant’s deny SLC of its MTB views and XC trails
