4FRNT Turnagain Pass

by 4FRNT
Dec 15th - 392 views

This is the culmination of a multi-day filming session on The Turnagain Pass with skiers Joshua Randich and Wiley Miller. For a week in early February, we bet against all odds to score south facing spines, an aspect most consider off limits come spring. Few crews have ventured to AK to see what the locals are all about until now, and with a bit of luck and determination, our crew bagged what are some of the longest, most exposed, yet easy to access lines one can find just a few steps off the road. "There are two types of Alaska ski trips you read about in ski magazines. There is the heli trip, where skiers hunker in a fishing village or backcountry lodge for weeks on end, “drinking it blue” — waiting for weather windows in which they can safely fly to nearby summits and flash down formidable skiing lines in 15 seconds. And there is the hardcore backcountry camping trip, where adventurers rough it on a remote glacier, digging out tents when it snows and bagging peaks and checking off descents when it’s clear. Both sorts of outings, almost always, come to fruition in the springtime. This is a different Alaska skiing story, one that takes place in the shadows cast by the North’s long nights, where locals drive old pick-ups to the trailhead, skin and climb for hours to ski film-worthy lines, and return in the dark, speaking hardly a word of what they just accomplished." - Derek Taylor, Freeskier Magazine Principal Cinematography : Austin Ramaley Additional Footage : Josh Randich, Wiley Miller, Matt Sterbenz, David Knutson Editing : Jake Strassman

Dissent Labs // Hoji - Relentless

by Newschoolers
Dec 13th - 1.1K views

Eric Hjorleifson (Hoji) needs little introduction. He is simultaneously an acclaimed professional backcountry athlete, and notorious gear tinkerer, designer, and fabricator. There is no equivalent, no one at his level of skiing proficiency with such a meticulous, hands-on approach to their own personal equipment. Hoji's brilliance in both skiing and design was recently highlighted by the launch of a new backcountry ski boot he developed in collaboration with Dynafit over the course of several years. This is certainly a milestone in Hoji’s career as an athlete-designer, but it definitely won’t be the last. Quietly, thoughtfully, and with little fanfare or celebration, Hoji will undoubtedly continue to work in the shadows, finding solutions and improvements that will benefit skiers across the globe. Hoji's unique abilities, and deep level of care for a better experience in the mountains is why we reached out to him in 2012 with our first Dissent prototypes. We have always appreciated his input, ideas, and the ability to test gear to its limit. Today, we feel the same way we did then: the most important gear improvements are the result of a relentless focus on the details, executed by people who truly understand and care about their time in the mountains.

THE CHAIRLIFT TRICK & TESTING THE 17/18 SOUL 7

THE CHAIRLIFT TRICK & TESTING THE 17/18 SOUL7 We got our hands on the brand new Rossignol Soul 7 hd. Thet have completely redesigned it for this season. The honeycomb goes longer down, reducing the weight of the ski, and then it has been reenforced, make it more stiff. It should perform better on piste, than the previous, but I like the playfulness of the old one more. No dought, it is a fantastic ski, but for my kind of skiing I like the old one more. I would still like to try it out with a freestyle binding, because til will make et more flexible. The chairlift trick, is when you need to use your hands, and want to get you poles out of the way, without dropping them. Stick them under you leg, so you will be sitting on them, and wolla, you are free to use your hands. Very important is, that you will have to remove them before lifting up the bar, or the will be in the way of the footrest. That is it for or 4 day season start in Sölden, Austria. Remember to subscribe. Respect the mountains & ride safe.

FULL SPEED & BROKEN BONES // THE ACCIDENT //

Full speed & broken bones // The Accident // My friend uffe, crashes on ski and brakes his ankle in to pices. Se the story When skiing accidents happens, and it did. My friend Uffe came down the groomed run, with a lot of speed, and hit a big natural curv on the piste. He flew about 10 meters, and crashed. His bindings did not release in properly, so he twisted his knee, and broke his ankle, with 2 fractures. After getting picked up by a snow scooter and taken down to the hospital. It was clear that he need surgery on this one. The next day he was taken to a private clinic, where he got surgery. At the clinic MedAlp the staff was very professional, and they see these injuries all the time, så the knew right away what to do. He will be out for about 6 weeks, and then there will be som rehab and training after that. He probably won’t be back on ski this season, but should fully recover for next year. The DIN setting on your bindings is very important. Make sure that it is set correctly for the kind of skiing you are doing. Also maintain your binding, it needs to be in mint condition every time. Do you have a ski that is a couple of years old, then check every ting, and adjust it properly. If you do not know how to do it, go to your local ski shop, and let them help you. Before the accident, we hiked a closed piste, and got a good powder run on that. The first part of the hike was very hard, because, the snow was very deep. My friend Nico, sank in at some point, and could not feel ground under him, a bit scary, but we could easy help him out. Again, safety is very important, and do not go out of bounds alone. If we had not been there, Nico had might not been able to get out him self. But we got up there, and had a great run down. Respect the mountains and enjoy.
