Life Of The Snow Carny: The New Freshman Class

In 2009 the world was introduced to the highly popular phrase Snow Carny, used to describe the transient seasonal workers of ski resorts world wide.

The Jersey Shore: Ski Town Survival Edition

The Jersey Shore: Ski Town Survival Edition

The title of snowboard bum is something that the snowboard culture covets and loathes all as one.

Kickstart These Jibgurlz Hearts

Kickstart These Jibgurlz Hearts

Kickstarter has been a great source of bad ideas that we’ve mocked.

Really Gotta Wanna – World Premiere and Review

Really Gotta Wanna – World Premiere and Review

Going to snowboard movie premiere in a real theater is one of those treats that needs to be savored. It’s nice to see snowboarding on a big screen and not in some poorly lit bar on a flat screen or through a crusty projector beaming images onto a white wall. The whole experience is something […]

The Ultimate Solution to Surface Lifts

The Ultimate Solution to Surface Lifts

If a problem can be envisioned then so can a solution. This seems to be the mantra of inventors who feel snowboarding has too many faults. They’ve created poles for pushing across flats, rotational disks so you can skate easier, and a slew of other bad ideas. The new problem that needs to be solved […]

Mammoth Mountain Jealous of Vail, Buys Bear and Snow Summit

Mammoth Mountain Jealous of Vail, Buys Bear and Snow Summit

It’s true jealousy is not pretty. In fact it’s just downright ugly. Well Mammoth Mountain that once epicenter of snowboarding in the early 2000’s was not pleased that Vail Resorts bought Park City Mountain Resort and further made their cheap season passes more enticing. In a fit of jealous rage and a wish to capitalize […]
