Just when you thought there wasn’t anything left to show from the 2014 Nine Queens Comp in Lovigno, Italy…they drop another sneakpeek. These ladies killed the castle and this may be the most stoked out edit yet. Be on the lookout for insane tricks, one giant transfer, Minnesota native Keri Herman’s cork-9 (STOMPED!!!), and Wayne’s World-esque extreme close ups! Dear Lord, how we wish we were there! Read More
From November 18th to January 17th, hundreds of teams from around the United States submitted photos for the first inaugural Gnartoraphy contest hosted by Rossignol Snowboards, The-House.com, Arkade Snowboarding and Park City Mountain Resort. The amateur teams composed of one photographer and open rider where pitted against each other in a multi-level online competition to get to the final 3. This was a one of it’s kind competition and the results were phenomenal. The top 3 teams arrived at Rossignol Headquarters in Park City, Utah on April 3rd and had 3 days of riding and shooting to walk away with the winning photograph. Each team received a brand new 2015 board and bindings courtesy of Rossignol Snowboards, and a new outerwear kit courtesy of The-House.com and after they chose their weapons the battle was on. There were no limits on where the teams could shoot at the mountain and they defiantly got creative utilizing the vast terrain the Park City Mountain Resort offers.
What would possess a human to do at Chairlift Cable Slide? There have been a few snowboarders that have gapped up to a cable, but parachuting onto a cable, come on. There isn’t much known about this Chairlift Cable Slide video besides the Vimeo stats, the Volkl Skis, and the name of the rider (Valentin Delluc). What ever you’re doing Valentin keep doing it.

Wow, just wow. There isn’t really much I can say about the epiciness of this entire Nine Knights highlights video beyond giving props to Jesper Tjäder for his insane double backflip (you know which one). Read More
Alex Taran is no stranger to skiing in exotic and extreme places. While the rest of us enjoy summer bike rides and swimming holes, her summer months are spent down south chasing winter in Argentina and Chile. Alex shreds The Andes as a Ski Guide for CASA Tours and teaches avalanche courses for the South American Beacon Project. Her North American Winter finds Alex on the prowl for pow all over the west; Ski Patrolling in Snowbird, crushing Squaw, exploring Jackson, getting weird in Colorado, and everywhere inbetween. She is very proud of the fact that her home is wherever her truck is parked, a very typical sentiment from the Tolkienian heart in all true ski bums. However, this ski yogi has philanthropy, entrepreneurism, and extreme ambition that matches her skiing skills. Taran is headed to the Aleutian Islands, in the middle of the Bering Sea to ski the Vsevidof Volcano. Yes, a volcano. The symmetrical cone summit rises in stark contrast to its surroundings. It is steep, filled with collapsed craters, and is the highest point on Umnak Island. Though it’s last eruption was caused by an earthquake on March 9, 1957, the only fire water Alex will be around is the whiskey she shares with fishermen in Nikolski, AK. Keep it locked with The House for updates on Alex Taran’s incredible adventure and look for this featured story in Powder Magazine coming later this year. Read More
