Tres Hard FULL MOVIE

Everyone’s favorite jibgurlz dropped their third movie Tres Hard. You know you want to watch this not because of the amount of shit that these girls eat, but because this is what snowboarding and specifically female snowboarding needs.

Your Favorite Brand Died This Weekend

Your Favorite Brand Died This Weekend

This weekend while you were more than likely too concerned with anything not snow related there was a death inside snowboarding.
