HOLY S#*T, Guillaume Vassas hit Air Jordan Naked! Yep Naked! This single BN just escalated the game of GNAR to the next level. In-fact he might have just put a cap on the BN. BN’s on Whistler Blackcomb will never be the same. I remember discussions of peeing in the middle of AJ, then Guillaume goes and does it naked WTF!

Good Job man, Dr. Gaffney will have to properly award you points.

March 10th, 2011 by

Yesterday, March 9th, 2011, was the first ever International Day of GNAR.  How better to kick off said occasion than with a 30 minute hike (Gold Coast to the Palisades because Siberia is still broken) and  in-bounds terrain that will literally scary the crap out of you (luckily my ski pants are brown, no seriously they’re brown).

Unofficial Game of G.N.A.R

Unofficial Game of GNAR

For Immediate Release:

Olympic Valley, CA is proud to announce The Unofficial Game of G.N.A.R., happening at Squaw Valley, USA the first 2 weeks of March, 2010. The game of G.N.A.R. (Gaffney’s Numerical Assessment of Radness), as published in the book Squallywood, by Dr. Robb Gaffney, is a game conceived of by Shane McConkey and Robb Gaffney as well as several of their friends from the Tahoe Area. The goal in the game is to get as many points as possible by skiing radical lines, minimizing penalties, and gathering bonus points by performing humorous and embarrassing acts. Every difficult line and cliff at Squaw Valley, as well as all the embarrassing acts and penalties are assigned point values with a general rule: the more uncomfortable one feels when doing something, the more points they’re going to get.

Unofficial Squaw is hosting the 2 week game and looking for 20 competitors (male, female, skiers, snowboarders) to battle for the winner –take-all prize of $25,000! That’s enough money to encourage some great skiing/riding as well as some really funny embarrassing acts. To top it off, it will all be caught on film by professional cinematographers and the helmet cameras on each competitor. The footage will be edited into a film that is likely going to be one of the funniest ski films of all time.
