Teen Falls 45 Feet From Ski Lift


Next time you think about throwing a snowball at your friends make sure to put the safety gate down!

A 17-year-old Albuquerque teen who fell about 45 feet from a ski-lift chair onto steep, snowy terrain at Ski Santa Fe a few weeks ago is reportedly OK.

“Basically, the kid is home and he is fine,” said Cody Sheppard, the ski patrol director at Ski Santa Fe. “It was kind of a dramatic deal. I guess he was attempting to throw a snowball to the chair in front of him, where some friends were, and when he threw the snowball, the momentum just carried him out of the chair. ” [Santa Fe New Mexican]

686: Lights Out

Above looking at all the new product at SIA is the 686 Light Out event.  This mano-a-mano boxing match puts industry dude vs industry dude.  Lights Out is beyond entertaining, of course the beer helps, and there is a reason everyone in the ring has a profession in the snow sports industry.  We can’t wait to see who 686 puts in the ring next year!

Stride Gum – Shaun White Commercial

Shaun White Commercial

Shaun White plays on a completely different field than every snowboarder who has ever lived.  Love him or hate him, it won’t affect what Shaun is capable of.

I’m glad Stride Chewing Gum understands humor.  What’s funnier than a gum company sponsoring a snowboarder?  A gum company that makes fun of the snowboarder they sponsor.
