Todd Ligare | Lines Volume 2 | Spines, Hucks and Massive Front Flips

April 9th, 2012 by

Todd Ligare, of monstrous front flip fame, is at it again. Well, maybe not again since this is footage from last season. Either way, it’s worth a look at a bunch of the footage from “One for the Road” that hit the cutting room floor. Filmed in Jackson Hole, Pemberton British Columbia, and Alaska, this footage is sure to please. There’s spines, pow, hucks, and, or course, another monster front flip.

It’s that time of year.  The one pieces, straight skis and for the lucky few, mono skis are being dusted off.  The lettuce must be shredded.  This mono ski vid is a must see for any spring enthusiast.  Ross da Boss Parsons airs (unsucessfully) into Corbets, throws some sweet twisters and grabs in the park and really just tears up Jackson in general.  Some thugged out ’not so classic’ mono-steeze right here. His famous last words are that Jackson’s got nothin’ on Sun Valley.   So funny.

The Run Around- Jackson Backcountry | Booters, Pow, and Sleds

March 28th, 2012 by

There’s a lot to do around Jackson in the winter. Here at Unofficial Jackson, we sometimes get sucked into just shredding the resort (who can blame us?) It’s good to see that somebody is getting it done a little deeper in the backcountry. Check out the latest episode from The Run Around, shot by Colorado based Two-Plank Productions. Corey Felton, Taylor Felton, Austin Gibney, and Topher Plimpton shred a variety of locations around the Jackson backcountry. Be sure to watch to the end to see some solid sled hang time.

Tim Swartz’s “American Daydream” Edit | Some of the Rowdiest POV of the Year

We’ve tried to phase out the strictly POV edits here at Unofficial, but sometimes we just have to make an exception. Tim Swartz’s “American Daydream” edit is such a case. It starts off casual- pillows and pow in Jackson Hole. Then, things get crazy at the Moonlight Basin Freeskiing World Tour Qualifier.

His lines are nothing short of jaw dropping- high consequence, big, and exposed. Did I mention, on to hard pack. Go to 1:45 if you don’t believe me. Way to throw down Tim!

Maybe it’s cruel to post a bunch of pow shots given our current weather pattern. Or, maybe, it will encourage winter to come back for one last gasp. Either way, … Read More

Vintage Ski Collision | Skier vs Skier

March 22nd, 2012 by
YouTube Preview Image

It’s hard saying if this footage is actually that old, or the camera it was shot on is just really crappy. Either way, the skier on skier action is A+. Skier “A” in the green jacket is enjoying a leisurely training run in stubby gates when…BAM! KAPOW! BLAMO! Skier “B” in the red delivers the knock out blow. The guys look alright, but it seems like skier “”B” should be buying skier “A” a few beers, to say the least.

 

 

Deep Pow and Backflipping The Goods | Jackson

The season has come back once again for the folks in Jackson.  During an on and off season, Tim Swartz is always there to take advantage of the on times.  This is a little clip of a warm up run in some of Jackson’s amazing sidecountry. A nice run with untouched pow and a solid backflip is a great way to start the day.  This video is very enjoyable to watch except for the couple tracks that were crossed around second 38.  What a good way to ruin a run.
