GOOD-BYE, WINTER…

May 4, 2016 |

For those of you who don’t know Will Chitty, you might want to check out his article on guiding in Valemount.  However, there are three things your should know about Will:  he’s a super nice guy, he’s a kick-ass guide and he single-handedly digs out more sledders per season than anyone else in the mountains. -ed. As the sun sets on another perfect bluebird spring day I know it’s time to start making my way home. Pulling my helmet on over a freshly sunburned face I start my decent back Read more […]Read More

Breaking Your Mold

April 28, 2016 | 1

Progression is defined as a movement or development toward a destination or a more advanced state, which for most sledders this movement is something we all strive for.  Whether it’s something like breaking free from the path to create our own line or mastering that awe-inspiring whip, these movements push us to become the better rider we all seek out to be. Comfort zones soon become which allows us to either progress or not Without continually pushing yourself through your comfort zones you Read more […]Read More

10 Commandments of Sledding Style

April 24, 2016 |

The Lord said to Moses, “Come up to me on the mountain and stay here, and I will give you the tablets of stone with the law and commandments I have written for their instruction.”  – Exodus 24:12   … Or something like that. Some of the names and events in the bible are clearly misleading, I believe they spelled ‘C-Dub’ incorrectly throughout the Old Testament, not too sure where they got ‘Moses’ from. Never heard of him. Must have been a spellcheck error. I think ‘camel’ was Read more […]Read More

The Start to my Perfect Day

April 21, 2016 |

The Start To My Perfect Day   Each winter month has its own characteristics that set it apart from the other months. I would have to say that March is one of my favorite months, because it can have a variety of amazing riding conditions that keep you wanting to ride day-after-day. From warm, sunny spring snow while riding just in a hoody, to deep, night-time alpine storms followed by long, cold sunny days; March can have it all.     The start to my perfect day consists Read more […]Read More

Way Back There

April 19, 2016 |

Colin Wallace photo   It was one of those days when you knew it was epic way back there. The last storm cycle was a week ago and all of the easily accessible zones were already paved by sledders. Orion and I knew we had to go deeper into the mountains to get the goods. At the gas station we each filled spare 20s and topped off our tanks to be sure we wouldn’t run out after the day’s roost and total of 90km of cat road. Rolling up to the parking lot, the sun began to crack through Read more […]Read More

Shorter is Funner

April 17, 2016 |

Ron Jeremy doesn’t go snowmobiling very often. But when he does, he whips out his 174” track and starts ramming it into all the nastiest zones. Of course that’s not true. The guy’s a chubby, senior citizen pornstar. And even though he’d fit right in at the Quartz Creek parking lot, the only thing he knows about riding lines in the mountains is snorting cocaine off a stripper’s tits. My point is this: Ron Jeremy would probably suck at snowmobiling, even though he’d be famous Read more […]Read More

The Honey Hole

April 15, 2016 |

Photos by Nick Reedy   The Honey Hole It’s early Friday afternoon and I have had just about enough of work for the week.  While the emails and problems continue to roll in and pile up my mind begins to drift further and further away from my desk.  I glance out the window and gaze longingly at the snowcapped peaks. Tomorrow cannot come soon enough I think as my computer dings with another incoming email alert. It’s a hot day in mid-February. High pressure has ridged out any snowstorms Read more […]Read More

My Experience at Burandt’s Backcountry Adventure

April 13, 2016 | 7

What is it like to ride with the face of backcountry sledding? A friend and I had opportunity to ride with Chris at his location in Buena Vista, Colorado. Here is an account of my experience at Burandt’s Backcountry Adventure.   We were told to arrive at Chris’ shop at 9am. His location is roughly 6 miles north of town on a country road. We were concerned we were on the right road until we saw the unmistakable Monster Energy trailer.     After pulling in the Read more […]Read More
