Todd Kirby left a little nugget in his Yobeat Hump Day interview that an Impaler powder edit was going to be dropping this fall. Christmas came early and Impaler just released it. These clips gather throughout the season in Montana may be the only domestic pow footage that is worth watching. What’s next on the crew’s agenda? Rumor has it that Japan maybe in the crosshairs. Whatever happens, we garrantee that it’s going to be nothing short of amazing. Stay tuned.

When winter hits most people put their down hill bikes away and pull out their fat bikes. Luda May had other ideas for his bike and grabbed Nico Faluet to shoot in Verbier, Switzerland. Although it looks cold, it also looks pretty cool. Jump to 0:50 to see the action.
Getting the Yawgoons out of the valley might be easier than expected. Teaming up with Capita‘s Scotty Stevens and Johnny O’Connor at Copper Mountain for some warm spring laps is always a good idea. Take a peek, get inspired, and wait until next season to try it.

Just as the temperature started cooling from snowboarding having a few days off from hot new tricks popping up on the internet, this happens. This is a Cab 1440° Triple Cork done by Yiwei Zhang. Technically it should be called a Triple Haakon because it’s a Cab Cripper A.K.A. a Haaken Flip with a 1440° rotation. Burton Snowboard‘s Yiwei Zhang has now been added to a very small list of riders who can Triple Cork, and he is the first rider to do it in the halfpipe.
Yiwei Zhang is familiar with outstanding performances in the pipe; he finished in 6th place at the 2014 Olympics in Sochi representing the Chinese national team and wrapped up a 2nd place finish at the 2013 Arctic Challenge. It’s no wonder why he has worked so hard to land the triple – Zhang is a pipe jock and wants to get paid. With the backing of Burton, Nike, Mini Cooper (seriously), and Oakley it looks like he’s on the right track.
