LINE Skis teammate Will Wesson just so happened to snap a few photos of the Intergalactic Skiing Space Ranger, House Rider Garrett Russell, at Woodward at Copper. Garrett’s famed Nose Block is sent further up the richter scale with the elusive Backpack Grab while LINE teammate Jon Hartman(another great mustache) lays a saucy under slash. Kelly Karis, videographer for Woodward at Copper, happened to capture the mind blowing trick. See the video below:

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
