the season is not over with: harry kearney

Harry Kearney just in from the last month of getting buck in the white room and grocery shopping with the mini cart. Slushy snow and sun might be the call now or heading to Hawaii or Mexico to stick your feet in the sand. I think Harry will just be skateboarding and listening to metal. Probably the new High on Fire album. Harry, what’s the call?

winter ain’t done yet

Winter isn’t quite over yet. I know the lifts have stopped spinning in Jackson Hole, but they are saying 2-3 feet of fresh in Tahoe by saturday morning. It’s always winter somewhere, and thankfully, we’ve still got some white stuff coming down in North America. Lifts, sleds, helicopters, snow shoes – get out and get some before it’s too late.

one beautiful day

Rob Kingwill aka Kinger comes thru with another dope edit from the Jackson Hole backcountry. The season isn’t over yet for Rob and shouldn’t be for you either. Plenty of powder left to be plundered. Get out there and get some.
