June 5, 2016 |

Straight airs have been dead for over a decade in every other action sport. Moto, skiing and snowboarding, mountain biking; watch a video from any of these sports and you’ll see almost every air is tricked or styled out with a grab. From the freestyle ramps and terrain parks, these tricks were brought to big, natural terrain and the level of riding was pushed further. However, the number of riders doing this in the sled world are few. It’s about time we catch up. To really bring this wave of Read more […]Read More

Brodie Evans 2016 Edit

May 30, 2016 |

Brodie Evans spends every waking moment shredding pow on his sled in Revelstoke. In his days, it nukes snow all night and rolls bluebird skies every day.  His sled never breaks, his beer is always cold and his fule guage always read “Full.”   This was the craziest season of my career, so many highs and lows, new people, new friends, new challenges, new opportunities and much more! Make sure if you want something go out and get it because nobody is just going to hand it to you. – Brodie   Read more […]Read More

Style Never Dies

May 22, 2016 |

Tyler Kraushar Photo.   Styles Never Dies The new school of riders are building on what the pioneers started, continuing their art of expression and taking it further than before. This is why the notion of style never dying is cyclical in nature, there’s always a new crop of up and comers that are killing it.

Getting the Shot

May 19, 2016 |

But the magnitude of the slide really gutted me.  This one took me off guard and it was the biggest slide I have ever been in.  I was lucky to be out in front of it and ride it out, especially since the miscommunication with my buddy meant that he didn’t have eyes on me.  I was so rattled that I wasn’t sure anything was safe – I definitely didn’t feel like sending it anymore.  It made me sick to my stomach to see the avalanche, the force.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
