March Madness | Brandon Craddock

March 25th, 2014 by

Everyone in Tahoe was hoping for a ‘Miracle March’ when it was really just ‘March Madness’. It was pretty bad but pretty good at the same time, it was a weird one.

IFSA VIDEO …. Taylor Pratt killing it 2012-2013

July 23rd, 2013 by

The past several years we have traveled across the continent to some of the biggest junior freeride competitions. Both the IFSA and JFT provide the opportunity for young and upcoming skiers in the US and Canada to showcase their talent.

The talent at the junior IFSA events and JFT events rivals the talent of the FWT 4 star events. Over the next several days we will include some season edits from some of these talented athletes and it’s the summer, so enjoy the skiing!

Taylor had this to say about his season.

“This year was one of the best I’ve ever had, from qualifying 2nd in 2 comps back to back to getting to travel to Revelstoke, BC and all around the west to shred some of the sickest resorts in the world with some of the best skiers in North America.  It was a breakthrough year for me, thanks to all the the support and stoke from all my Alta/Bird coaches and closest homies, this year was definitely a year full of memories I’ll never forget!”

Guess this guy forgot to factor in the lack of wind resistance without clothes.  Looks like a a painful crash even with the added protection of outerwear.  This clip comes from longer video put out by a rowdy crew.  They are bringing riding back to the days of the Whisky movies, where riding is just something to do between drinks.

Mt. Hood Summer Shred VIDEO for SnowGlobe

October 15th, 2012 by

Earlier this summer Kaya Lampe from Sessions Outerwear put together a trip up to Mt Hood to film a short video with several local groms. These 4 kids represent motivation, talent, and drive.  They are also 4 really good kids that are enjoyable to be around on- and off-the-hill.

Kaya Lampe, Hunter Simpson, Rals White, Mike Jones, Charlie Ingalls heading up to Mt. Hood.

This video will be featured at SnowGlobe December 29-31 and features 2 of the artists who will be appearing. I was stoked with the summer shredding and fully expect to see big things from all 4 of these guys this winter.  The level of talent beginning to develop with the young Tahoe park skiers is already impressive. With a facility like Woodward just down the street, it’s going to skyrocket. Super-groms Cody Laplante and Aspen Spora are just a few years behind and we could see some new Tahoe Olympians in the coming years. Good luck guys and keep killin it.

I was stoked on the music and it got me excited about SnowGlobe this winter. The skiing starts at :41 seconds in.

 

Loving the Brown Pow | Freeriding Teton Pass

June 3rd, 2012 by

The biking season has started off very strong this season.  Most trails have been dry for quit a while and with the off and on precipitation the dirt has been staying great.  The work on Jimmy’s Mom’s Bottom has provided some great new jump and fun berms that make a super fun trail with great flow.  Thank everyone for all the work done.  Teton pass biking just keeps getting better.

Josh Anderson as SaucerBoy….. you want to watch this VIDEO

May 14th, 2012 by

Back in January and February when we weren’t sure that Squaw would stay open until March, Josh Anderson and I decided to have some fun. The snow was non-existant and hardly pow, so we came up with creative ways to pass the days on the hill. Everybody loves SaucerBoy so why not go play the part for a day or two and see what happened? The response was amazing. People were yelling from the chairlifts, taking pictures, and super stoked on the whole thing.   Josh has dressed up as SaucerBoy for various events, and plays the character really well so it was funny.

Saucer Boy

If you haven’t dressed up as SaucerBoy I would suggest that you try it out. Feel out your inner Shane and the SaucerBoy in all of us. The looks, responses, and gawking was certainly worth it and I think Shane would have been proud. Thanks Shane for making these kinds of things funny and fun to do.
