The Armada Team journeyed out to South Korea this past February to see what the skiing culture in and around Seoul was all about. They spent most of their time at High 1 Resort, exploring the mountain and all of the concrete and rock ledges surrounding the hotel area.

IFSA Video: Erik Hilb killing it

September 16th, 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!

Erik Hilb is a talented 17 YO skier from Vail, CO. He is comfortable in the park, on big mountain terrain, and turns his skis as well as anyone. Check out some of the technicality of some of the lines in this video. He had a great year and we look forward to watching Erik continue to progress.

Erik had this to say about his season:

“I broke my arm early on in the season but I was back skiing by January and was able to secure a few National podiums and on several occasions I was holding the highest individual score of the competition. Had a great time shredding with all the guys on the tour this year and am way stoked to ride with all of them again this season! Big ups to Oakley, Pret Helmets, Full Tilt Boots, and Soul Poles for the support, and of course thanks to my parents and coaches!”

Scott Schmidt and Glen Plake Going Big In Chamonix | The Climactic Sequence to the All-Time Cult Classic, Blizzard of Aahhhs

It must be because snow is in the forecast, but look at what we found-the final sequence to arguably the greatest ski movie ever created! In our greatest ski movie list a whole lotta love was put out there for Blizzard, and rightfully so.  It’s a little tough to not get the whole Chamonix sequence, Rasta Stevie’s take on the Babylon aspects of ski society, and the Squaw scene where Mainline Pocket is the proving grounds for who gets to join Schmidt in France. Nonetheless, here it is……..”Warriors!!!!!!”
