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’.

Oooopsie…too much fun
Even after watching this video 3 times my thoughts about pogo sticking are relatively the same, it’s pretty weird. From the looks of the edit, the Cooligans take pogo sticking very seriously. Imagine the countless number of hours it took to learn those tricks.
On another note what do the Cooligans say to each other when they want to pogo stick? Go stick? Go sticking? I’m at a loss here.
If you happen to enjoy sticking make sure to wear a HELMET.
Eli Lamm dropped a great early season edit that was bonkers and now he drops his park season ender and my mind is blown. It’s great to see a park edit with more than just rails coming out of Minnesota. Good job Eli, it’ll be great to see what comes next from you.

It may be more difficult to jump a Fat Bike like this, but these snow bikes would be a blast to mess around on.
Keri Herman grew up in Bloomington, MN, moved out to Colorado for college, and blew up on the international freeskiing scene. She was fortunate enough to represent the Stars and Stripes in Sochi this winter. EpicTV gave the tater tot casserole loving aerialist a GoPro and let her go wild. What she recorded in her video diary, entitled Rise and Shine, is one of a kind and pretty darn hilarious. She even captures House Team Rider and Women’s Halfpipe Gold Medalist Kaitlyn Farrington spilling coffee on her white Team USA pants. Look for cameos from fashionably confused Nick Goepper, a strutting Devin Logan, a sleepy Joss Christensen and Gus Kenworthy, and more by clicking READ MORE below.

Oops…House Team Rider Kaitlyn Farrington spills a cup-a-joe on some special pants…
