Classic Lines in Las Leñas: Adrenalina

September 7th, 2012 by


This is a video of a trip to ski one of Las Leñas’ classic big lines: Adrenalina.

Adrenalina is the primary couloir running from the summit of Cerro Yeseras. It has everything one could want from a classic: a summit descent, an aesthetic line, a prominent view from town, and a beautiful ski and climb. The run starts at 14,000 feet, and goes 7,000 feet to the valley floor.

Riders are Zach Paley, Matthias Weichelsbaumer, and myself.

More From Alaska: Mike Barney Charging

April 17th, 2012 by

Tired of seeing stoke from Alaska while you’re skiing slush in the lower 48? Its about time to get up here and see what its all about.

This video features Mike Barney crushing lines shot with a POV and a heli. Barney guides in Silverton and Alaska, and is rather good at skiing. The lines get better and better as the video goes on, so watch it through to the end. Look out for the glaciated-double-stager at 1:41 and the spines-to-send at 1:56.

Ever wonder what it is like to stare down AK spines?

This is an interesting pov of big mountain skiing not generally seen in videos.  All the little things matter, like chunking off a piece of cornice, the classic pole tap and the skillz to stare down a big Ak face and still make slasher turns.  Sage is the master of all things snow.  Drop lines not Bombs.

Skip to 2:09 for the skiing.

Double Secret Pillow Lines | Somewhere in Asia | Feb 5

February 5th, 2012 by

Somewhere between Tokyo and the Sea of Japan lies a land of virgin pillows the likes of which only a select few have laid eyes upon.

These lines are tucked away from the prying eyes of Australian snowboarders, where only the die-hardiest of locals may find them. But, if you search long enough (or maybe just turn your head slightly to the right while skiing Happo’s north faces), perhaps one day the mountains will deem you worthy to ride them.

This video features a couple of tries on a couple of the lines in this area, a few days apart. Once (today) in more settled snow and good light, once (a few days ago) with new snow falling and sluffing heavily.

POV from Hakuba, Japan

January 8th, 2012 by

Hakuba received about three feet of snow over a couple days this week. This gave us some killer tree skiing, but left us thirsty for some clear skies to get into the alpine. Friday and Saturday delivered! The high peaks were still shrouded in clouds leaving the biggest lines unskiable, but mid-sized lines at tree line were in prime condition. Hakuba’s mid-sized lines are packed with small airs and spines, and are really playful and fun to ride.
