You remember that guy that basically went viral after skiing the bird in all the ridiculous gear with like 4 gopro’s on? Turns out hes been spotted all over the country, and has even worn his full setup to the gym in NYC. Apparently he is “training for Alaska”. The story goes like this: this guys buddy goes up to valdez to heli ski each year and knew that this guy is some kinda psycho who takes things too far, so he told him he needs to train real hard for the trip. Ideally by wearing a 40lb pack and climbing gear as much as possible while skiing to get a feel for the “grueling conditions” he will face in AK.

One of the billion threads around the internet on this guy is here on TGR.

Gaper Spirit Animal

Sited at Snowbird earlier this season....

I think if you guys put an article up, maybe we can track this guy down, capture him, and put him in a zoo so scientists can study him. Word is he’s  a MASSIVE roided out dude who everyone describes as “Lattimer from the movie The Program” – Brian

Thanks for the info and the link to the video Brian. I am sure we can track this fellow down if we all work on it together.

    He’s going to be laughing at everyone laughing at him when main stream media picks up his story starts paying him for his footage, interviews and his inevitable book/dvd goes Oprah.

    This guy was at Squaw! Spotted both in the rental shop and at Mamasake – we’ll have to track down the photos. This is awesome.

    • JayT

      When? There are a number of Tahoe-based believers, so surprised he could go to Squaw and not be noticed by one.

      • chief mcchieferson

        also saw him at squaw…january. he was “out there putting my life on the line” on his volkl grizzlies

        I spotted him at Squaw and have photo proof. In case you were wondering what he ordered at the bar… Straight RedBull… I have photos to back that up too

    Well there goes the neighborhood. The GSA will become self-aware if you post this stuff on places like unofficial. Repent, sinners!

    In the name of the GSA, the 2 gopros, and the climbing harness. Amen.

      • SB4L

        No that is not part of the GSA prayer. Hence why this should not be posted on unofficial. Too many non-believers will ruin the spirit of the GSA.

        Brian = judas. He has betrayed the true essence of the GSA by posting this to Unofficial.

  • My Premonition

    First run in AK results in him tomahawking furiously down a mountain after his first turn. So furious in fact, that every piece of equipment is sent forth from his body in all directions, instantaneously breaching the speed of light. Scientists are dumbfounded, space travel is now a possibility.

    Hi Daryn! This blogpost shows an incredible lack of maturity, making so much fun of someone who clearly is infatuated with the pastime we all love and cherish is really an embarrassment to UNOFFICIALNETWORKS. The stalking and ridicule has clearly crossed the line and I am asking you all to stand back and take a look at how childish this all is.
    I also would like to take this opportunity to formally invite all reading this to come join our fun-loving but responsible bunch of snowriding aficionados at http://forums.alpinezone.com/. I think most all of you will find that our seasoned moderators “keep the bar high” by maintaining a sense of order and decorum, while encouraging quality discussion about our favorite pastime. I can assure you that “newbies”‘ are welcomed with open arms by our entire community, and there is no “hazing period” or rudeness tolerated. It may take a small amount of getting used to, as we do have reasonable standards as far as language and image posting that are strictly enforced. The registration is easy and painless, and the rules will be explained in detail during the process. I will warn you however up front that registering an ALIAS is strictly “VERBOTEN”, and something we have zero-tolerance with. If you are tired of the juvenile goings-on at most ski websites and yearn for a snowriding forum that matches your maturity level, all I can say is: “Come join the fun”! :)

    Greg you’re right somebody needs to police these fags who think skiing and silliness go hand in hand. thank God- and down to Earth sons-of-a-Bs like yourself have the maturity to clean up the ski community. Could you please address the other retarded activities? say masturbation and remote control cars? Any advice you have on life would totally be awesome. P.S. what should I name my dick? it just hangs there uselessly….

    Hear yee Hear yee, Repent! all ye heathen non-believers before the Holy One and ne’er again utter his Sacred Name to the masses on Unofficial Networks!
