Look Farther

Like it says in the picture. If you're needing to discover some new music outside of Weezy and MGMT, head on over to Pitchfork and spice it up. Lots of goodness coming out over the past 365 days that I'm sure has much better musical prowess than the previously mentioned two. After I look into it a bit more I'll highlight some of my favorites...

I'm Still Lost

Its nearing eight years and I'm still so confused why we allowed him to make it through all eight...

Boss at the Berrics

Steve Berra and Eric Koston have put together the largest game of skate over at the Berrics. Been waiting for this one. Was a little nervous that the old timer might have some trouble with the young buck, but The Boss once again shows them who's boss...I'm sorry for doubting.I would love to see some projects like this come up in skiing. Some of the more creative minds putting their heads together and applying the Berrics idea to snow. Any ideas, resources, locations?? Feel free to let me know...

Something Like That

Put the arm in a sling and hopped in the car to make the drive home. A bit of an adventure doing the 7 hour drive from Breck to SLC with my right arm disabled. Multitasking driving, eating, phone, drinks. Would have been nice to have been co-pilot on this one, but I wanted to make the drive home to get to my brothers birthday dinner as well as a Christmas party with my summer employer. Was good to see everyone from the office and hear some people get recognized for their efforts over the past year.Ever seen the movie Boiler Room? Yeah, pretty much like that...except legal.

3 weeks...

Nurse Jennifer took this one for me today. My hand was a little too shaky to take the self portrait. Having a little too much fun in Keystone today. Feeling good on my skis, feeling like I'm getting some tricks back and getting ready for the Dew Tour....then whoops...stupid little mistake sends me into a pile driver maneuver onto my shoulder. 2nd degree ac joint tear. Bummer. First injury in a long long time. Name of the game. Back to Utah tomorrow to rest up for 3 weeks. Get back in the mix right after New Years.

Slaying the Beav

Been out in Breck/Keystone for the most part training and shredding, but this past week(end) were the World Cup races in Beaver Creek. Its always a fun time because my family and friends make the trek from Utah to watch my brother compete in the speed events. The past two years he has podiumed in the downhill...3rd two years ago and 2nd last year. So given the trend we're wanting a 1st. Unfortunately that didn't happen, but a top 10 finish is still amazing. Watch his run here. Happy for him to be getting things back together after some ups and downs with injuries last year.
Also was able to take some run with my pops and son number one, Michael. Doesn't happen too often so was psyched to do that.Now back in training mode, but the consistent snow is making it a bit hard. One week left until Dew Tour...

Utah x Colorado

Packed my bags and made the jump to Colorado for the next few weeks.Left Utah which looked like this.
Arrived in Colorado which looked like this.
Drank a gallon+ of water on my way over because I felt the common cold coming on strong. Due to the heavy hydration I had to pull over 8x to drain myself and that made my drive last into the night.Happy and healthy now.
