Mike Basich is living the dream, he roams around the world looking for and shredding the gnarliest backcountry lines. He’s also one seriously talented craftsperson, having constructed and lived out of a tiny home he built on a trailer in the Alaskan wilderness.
Now Mike is back at it, this time he’s building a tiny home on the bed of a light duty 4×4 truck, the aim being to have a home he can park in a standard parking spot and drive from line to line.
And if you want to see his previous tiny home adventure check out the video below. Mike Basich, one seriously cool dude!
Eli Bouchard is a sick little ripper hailing from Quebec, Canada. He’s the youngest person to land a double backflip, SICK! Double backflips are are only the tip of the iceberg for this little dude, check out this edit from Maximise:
Trukee is an avalanche rescue dog at Heavenly Mountain. The video comes from Chris Child, who works ski patrol at Heavenly in the winter and wildfire management in the summer. Truckee, who hits the slopes with Chris to sniff out trapped avalanche victims and missing skiers and boarders apparently also loves getting in on the downhill action at work, when off duty, we assume.
Truckee and some of the other rescue dogs at Heavenly also apparently love getting a ride up the mountain human style, look at those tails go!
Amazing video of an adult lynx coming within feet of skiers at Big White ski resort in Kelowna, British Columbia has been posted on the mountain’s Facebook account. The gorgeous lynx hesitantly walks onto the run after emerging from the forest and decides to let a few skiers through before sneaking off into the forest on the other side of the run.
While lynx are found in the forests of British Columbia it’s rare for them to be seen in the open among humans.
A freak windstorm at Prato Nevoso ski resort in northern Italy battered a two-person chairlift on Monday. Officials were caught off-guard leaving skiers and riders stranded to tough out the gusts.
Gusts of up to 75 mph derailed the tow cable of the Red chairlift, leaving 130 skiers on the lift, according to Yahoo News UK. The gusts sent empty chairs swinging violently as seen in the video footage above.
Mountain rescue teams were dispatched and when conditions calmed down rescuers began lowering the stranded skiers safely to the ground. Thankfully, no one was injured.
Mammoth Mountain of California has no shortage of the white stuff this season thanks to record-breaking snowfall, including more snow in January than any month on record at the resort. Sitting at a 340-inch (8.6 meters!) base at the top of the mountain, and 178 inches (4.5 meters) at Main Lodge, the resort operators have announced that the mountain will be open through the 4th of July!
The english language is a fickle beast. To the untrained ear, native English speakers use words completely incorrectly on a daily bases. For example, this is the baddest article every written. See, in that instance I’m using bad to mean good, because clearly this article is rad. Rad? Yeah, rad. Anyway Matchstick Productions, who have been in the business of filming the world’s best skiers for 25 years and have thrown together a completion of ski crashes that they consider to be the greatest ever. And by greatest they mean, most bone crushing, head slamming, concussion inducing, make you say owwwww out loud crashes all set to a dope sound track that makes you want to shotgun a beer. Greatest everrrrr! Enjoy:
