Boarderline Stupid

Sneaking into Canada without proper identification is no problem for Kirt Voreis, Carson Storch, and Jamie Goldman who want to ride Whistler.  There’s more than enough Smith Optics logs throughout the vid, how many can you count?

How to Camp

Camping, it’s simple enough, just go *outside and stay outside until morning.  Is sleep required for your outdoor activity to be called camping? That’s for you to decide.  As easy as going outside and staying there until morning may seem, there’s a few items that will make it more enjoyable. Check out the list below:

Sh*t Skiers And Snowboarders Say

#ChasingWinter Is Easier While Laughing

Ok, ok, yes, it’s great that summer has arrived. Flipflops are spectacular, sand between the toes feels amazing, and dipping feet into lakes,rivers, and oceans is a nice reprieve from boot-bound winter months. A suntan(burn) on skin other than my face from nose to chin is a pleasant reminder that shorts and t-shirts are the seasonal uniform. BBQs, beach volleyball, slowpitch softball, boats, sunny hikes, SUPing, biking, climbing, coffee on Main Street, tubing…; the summer activities list is endless, the gals are sunkist, and everybody smells like Coppertone (mmmm…sunscreen is the best perfume.) However, I find myself daydreaming about the white room, graupel laden wind blowing sideways, hiking in single digits on frozen scree fields to get to the goods, the initiation of the turn…ahhhhh. It’s an undeniable fact of my existence: I love winter. I love to ski. I love the snow.

I take solace knowing I am not alone. I am surrounded by winter loving, mountain day dreaming ski and snowboard *bums here at The House. We find it easiest to deal with our drifting minds by laughing at the stereotypical remarks found on every hill. These two clips are oldies but goodies. Laugh, high5, and dream of next winter my friends. It’ll be here before you know it. Until then, we call next on bocce…


*Bum, when in reference to an avid skier or snowboarder, is a term of endearment like Bro, Brah, or Mi Amigo/Mi Amigs

Hotdoggin’ with Alex Taran

House Rider Chases Winter into The Sierras, Pees Pants

The Wild One herself is at it again. House Rider Alex Taran (@alex_taran), our very own skiing version of Patti Smith, is by far the gnarliest chica on two planks on any side of the Mississippi. This past March while California’s winter drought was sucking up the passion from “normal” skiers, Alex ventured deep into the Sierra backcountry to chase winter down. Along with her was everybody’s favorite skiing vegan, David “Cruchy Granola” Steele (@davidpowdersteele). The duo had to constantly change plans and routes due to adverse weather, bulletproof snow, road closures, and every other curve ball under the sun life offers up when a mission is in progress. Hardship? Ha, no way. These two rolled with the punches and ski’d some killer lines including “Hole In The Wall”  by Mammoth Lakes. The trip was so much fun in fact that it was hard to control bodily functions…they don’t call her Sh*tshow for nothin’.
