The Solid Seven will be a whenever the hell I feel like it article series detailing 7 solid, not necessarily great, skiing related topics. Whether it is 7 questions with everyone's favorite pro Jason Arens *cough* finish the damn interview *cough* (yes it's still not done yet), 7 epic BC jump shots, or the 7 gnarliest bails from the previous month, just know I'm doing you a solid.
Jiberish; stewards of style in the ski fashion world and the target of the classic "YOU SOLD OUT!" chants from those not happy with the direction their clothing lines have been going as of late. Regardless of your stance, there is no denying that Jiberish's team & video projects throughout the years have helped to mold skiing into what it is today.
1. A Day and a Half at Breck
The video that will never lose it's appeal no matter how old it gets, is first on our list because it is a tru classic. What more to like than Wallisch, Hornbeck, Brogan, & Delorme ripping around Breck to Girl Talk?
2. Do Werk
Matt Walker, Andrew Hathaway, Jon Brogan, Tom Wallisch, Corey Vanular, and Joe Mango round out the crew that delivered 8 minutes of bangers to your eyeballs 6 years ago. The variety in styles and endless bag of tricks are what made the '08-'09 Jiberish team one of the best ever.
3. Hood Edit
Speaking of 2008, the Jiberish crew headed out to Hood (when there was actually snow) and put in work! This one is quite the trip down memory lane and brings up the question; was '08 the best year for freeskiing?
4. Walk in the Park - Tom Wallisch
Tom Wallisch; Todd Wallnuts, the Pretzelman, the King of Afterbang. He is all of these things, all one in the same. I don't need to say much more except, if you haven't seen this edit where have you been?!
5. Walk in the Park - Adam Delorme
While it was a tossup between this Walk in the Park and his second installment, Delorme puts on a clinic of style and speed that are unmatched in the park and backcountry. He truly defines the meaning of hot laps in the park.
6. Welcome to the Fam - Vila & Jordan
Oh Lord have mercy on their souls, the boys from Stept murdered their welcome edit. Most of us have seen their smooth and effortless style in the yearly Stept movie installments but there is something special about this edit that makes me come back to it to get psyched.
7. Right Back Where We Started
One does not simply forget how damn good "Right Back Where We Started" is. Jiberish's first and only full-length film showcases the talent of their insanely stacked 2010 crew that skiers, snowboarders, and skateboarders can all enjoy.
