Wingsuit Pilot Narrowly Escapes Collision

“BASE jumpers and wingsuit pilots Jokke Sommer, Espen Fadnes and Ludo Woerth have left Chamonix and headed to China to fly the breathtaking Tianmen mountains. Rising high and steep, the rock formations are perfect for a dramatic, technical and beautiful flight. But with a gusty exit, the pilots have their reservations. On the second flight something unexpected happens – one of the wingsuit pilots experiences a close call when a wingsuit equipment error nearly causes a fatal accident.” – Wingsuit Pilot Narrowly Escapes Collision w/ Gondola at Tianmen Mountain | The Perfect Flight, Ep. 3

Canada Landscape Time Lapse

This is Sebastian Ross’ tribute to his home country of Canada and it’s truely beautiful landscapes.  From Tofino to Dinosaur Provincial Park, Sebastian pursued a dream, living off the grid for 6 weeks with only one quest in mind. With his dirtbag van, he traveled through the West coast, trying to capture a tiny bit of our natural wonders under the best light possible. Most of those images have required a lots of driving hours, hiking, waiting and wilderness camping…but that’s all the fun stuff, eh!

Get on your own adventure and start camping HERE.

 

 

Mix Master Mike – EVERY THIRD THURSDAY

The dudes at signal have made some pretty amazing things that slide sideways on the snow. The Crew created a 100% rideable snowboard that has a 100% working turntable and mixer. We are not left speechless often as we are so “jaded”, but this series is always one that we watch in awe. In this episode of every third thursday they they put the” in awe, in AWEsome.”Go on record and off the charts to produce one of the most insane “snowboards” of all time. With the help of artist, visionary and self proclaimed “Wienaissance man” Mark Paul Deren AKA Madsteez and the ultimate Hip Hop LEGEND, repeat, THE LEGEND, MIX MASTER MIKE the DJ of the Beastie Boys.

This is one board that you will want to scratch the hell out of and wawa to fakie on. I’m also curious to know if there are any DJ terms that translate into snowboard terms OR could be made into tricks? If so, please let us know in the comments section and we will maybe have one of our athletes perform that trick for you!

Icelantic’s Winter On The Rocks

ghostlandannouncesICELANTIC has corralled two of today’s hottest musical acts for the 3rd Annual Winter On The Rocks Concert at Red Rocks Amphitheater. Ghostland Observatory and Jurassic 5 will take the stage Friday January 31, beneath Denver’s starry winter night sky, amongst the storied red walls of the concert venue. This news comes on the heels of GLO’s announcement of a self-imposed hiatus that suggested the group might be flirting with a break up. On November 22, GLO announced their creative halt via the band’s Facebook page. GLO Heads everywhere went into a tailspin, glitter became less sparkly, the incandescence of glow-sticks dimmed like Tinker Bells’ light. Super fan Dance Fever Keever, shocked and dismayed, retired her famed moves “The Chicken Leg,” “The Wobble,” and her version of Lisa Turtle’s “The Sprain.” When reached for comment The DFK could only muster “Dang y’alls! I can’t even talk about this dang ole thang. I be like so dang-on heartbroken. Plus, I smashed my fanger in the dang-on door!” The dancing queen was inconsolable.

Then last week concert promoter Telluride Ski Resort and ICELANTIC announced Ghostland Observatory would be joining Jurassic 5 for the winter celebration. And just like that, the face paint was broken out, hair crimping flat irons were unpacked, and shimmery golden stretch pants once again had purpose. It seems fitting the electro dance funk GLO has teamed up with Jurassic 5. The Hip Hop group has seen its own episodes of on-again, off-again dramatics.

In addition to the excitement of the J5 and GLO pairing, ICELANTIC has created a contest leading up to the event. The winner of Road To The Rocks will receive a VIP package to the show, roundtrip flights, a 4-night stay in a hotel, lift tickets, 2 pairs of ICELANTIC Skis, and a Jeep to cruise in for the weekend. This is quite possibly the greatest contest ever created for what stands to be the greatest concert of all time.

Start stretching, kiddos. Spit shine your sparkly, sparkly dance princess outfits and get ready to “dance off your pants off.” It is time to turn into Dance-a-jaweyah, PocaHotness, and GeroniWhoa. Perhaps, if we booty clap loud enough, Ullr will hear and reward us all with a storm of the deep fluffy stuff.
