That's right ladies, here in the incredible Coast Mountain range, rated 2nd in the world by Skier Canada as the best range to ski (Alaska was a close 1st), it's snowed 4 times since August. 15th on SHAMES MOUNTAIN, BC.
Sorry to brag, but if this season turns out like the Farmer's Almanac predicts then this will be my most incredible season ever. Farmer's Almanac predicts above normal precipitation and normal (cold) tempertures. So that means a shiat load of snow. Stay tuned at Get Hyped this winter because we'll be posting footage of local riders going off.
By local riders I mean a guy who was throwing Rodeo 1080s 2 years ago who can do so much stuff natural and unnatural along with some smooooooth style.
Another guy who I've never seen do more than a 180, he does things sooooo slow, natural, unnatural, switch, unnatural, and usually with a safety. He greases the rails natural and unnatural to fakie all the time.
And my good friend Rich Payjack who'll be laying it down on the jibs and going huge in the backcountry. Last season he launched 50 or so feet off the side of a run to land on a small tree and then hit the same thing another 6 or so times throwing an attempt at a backflip, 360s, and some 720 attempts (no lip, no height).
Also, if anyone lives near Shames, this season would be the one to come up and ski here, if you come ski with us you'll be hitting some smooove backcontry kickers and get to session the park on those slushy/icy days.
Later guys, hope your seasons will be as kick ass as this one sounds.
