When the snow is really, really bad, skiing on rock might seem like fun. At least to Nico Vuignier.
Ready to take your park design to the next level? Here's how to build your very own Nine Knights castle.
You wait in line watching the clock tick by for the minute the lifts start rolling up the hill. You've been up since an ungodly time in the morning with your slightly reluctant ski partner. You've eaten something that made you feel slightly ill when travelling up. The coffee picked today to scold the roof of your mouth. The sun is only just rising over the taller peaks and the lift is still in shadow. It's still worth it to get that first chair wheeling round the cable and even your crusty socks won't stop your elatedness...
You no longer have to comb through terrible code to find the best shredsauce levels. Check out the new site!
Resorts are closing and it's time to put the jumps and rails away in that old shed where they keep the moguls. Competition season is done, and for a small bit of time we can escape words like training, Olympics, and amplitude. We survived the Olympics, and save for a few blown knees and blown medal dreams the sport of skiing didn't implode, and the man didn't steal our souls.

“I think we have been raised in an environment where people see cleverness and sex as being totally independent: sex is sex and is never..
This year, a new concept was applied to the iF3 VideoQuest contest: urban skiing. Since its inception, this amateur contest’s objective was to stimulate passionate skiers to produce content with hopes to present the results of their hard work at the iF3 Festival.
For the last weekend of the season, Nico Vuigner has put together one fun spring session. While three days, riders will be able to session a course shaped with the last snow left.
When it rains, it pours. Or at least the saying held true last night in Whistler for the WSI big Air. Under the lights and the rain the last big air comp of the year went down in true Whistler fashion.
You’re about to drop in on the biggest line of your life. Or maybe it’s a normal-sized mogul run, or a backyard booter, or the bunny hill. The photographer’s images have been published on the cover of every major ski magazine, or on your roommate’s blog twice, or on your mom’s annual chain email to the extended family.
The last hurrah of the competition season got underway today with the kickoff of the World Ski Invitational here in Whistler BC. 60 competitors, a mix of tired vets, hungry young guns and hungover skiers took to the slopestyle course attempting to join the 20 prequalified skiers in Sunday's semifinals and finals, with only the top five skiers advancing from each of the two heats of 30.
At least 12 Sherpa guides were killed Friday morning on Mount Everest when an avalanche struck as they were fixing ropes for other climbers, a Nepalese Tourism Ministry official said, the worst disaster on the mountain in recorded history.
In recent history, the term “resort” has come to describe more and more of the places where we ski and snowboard. Where ski areas, ski hills, and mountains once appropriately presented the snow sliding experience as a relatively bare-bones and self-determined adventure in the hardy climes of nature’s winter, marketing departments, possible due to stagnating visitation, have sought to rebrand their facilities as resorts, giving potential visitors the mind’s eye image of being pampered at a spa or having all of their cares and wants massaged by the fingertips of an army of wait staff intent on delivering them to a specific parking spot, ferrying them merrily to a station where bright-cheeked men with a strange resemblance to Santa Claus buckle their boots for them, and delivering a Bloody Mary at the snap of a finger a la Sandals Saint Lucia.
A bunch of skiers on a Glacier in Tajikistan. Yup, apparently you can ski there.

Granite Peak is located in Wausau, Wisconsin and calls itself “Your Modern Midwest Mountain”. I took my first trip out to the hill in central Wisconsin and found just that, Granite Peak effectively makes a Midwestern hill feel a little more like a western ski area.
War weary, haggard, and torn, the conservative populace of the 1950s grew restless. Tantalized and agitated by a hip-swiveling Elvis Presley and a leggy Marilyn Monroe, sexual tension gripped the West. Like a plugged Old Faithful, men and women yearned to erupt from their oppressive all-natural fibers.
Here's a look at how the Jon Olsson Invitational in Åre, Sweden and the Swiss Freeski Championships in Corvatsch Silvaplana, Switzerland affected the AFP World Rankings.
Centered around a 12-foot deep bowl at the base of Park City the Holy Bowly course spills out into a series of boobs, berms, rollers, hips, and volcanoes all blending into nearly endless lines. There is not a traditional takeoff or transition in sight thanks to Lib Tech’s Krush Kulesza who worked for seven days with the Park City park crew hand-sculpting every curve to create a one-of-a-kind course three-times bigger than any previous Holy Bowly. With no right or wrong way to ride the setup the challenge on day one of the five-day gathering was to discover which lines worked best.
