Oh to Be 12 Again

March 22, 2016 | 2

Christmas time brings joy, love, peace and presents but the best present for this girl is the week-long Revy trip we take every year. I think in the last 15 years I have only ever missed 2 of these trips and let me tell you this year was EPIC! I have never rode in so much pow and bluebird, yes it was chilly, but so worth it! My 12 year-old nephew, Chase MacDougall, joined us this year and at first I must say I was a tad worried about all the stucks that were going to occur in the 4ft of fresh we Read more […]Read More

March 21, 2016 | 11

A video called “I survived a big Avalanche while snowmbiling thanks to my guardian angels !!!!…” posted on March 17, 2016 by YouTube user Doug Lakeman shows a rider trigger, and survive, a large avalanche while riding in the Gorman Lake snowmobile area near Golden, BC. The video gives a gut-wrenching, first-person account of a big ride in an avalanche.   As someone who is very familiar with this particular area—having ridden Gorman probably 50 times in the last 11 years—I thought Read more […]Read More

March 20, 2016 |

A lot of things come with instructions, like IKEA furniture and those cheap pre-made meals from the frozen food section. Jumps, however, don’t come with instructions. Building hits is an art so there’s no single right way to build one, but there are a lot of wrong ways. Here are some general steps we suggest for when you and the crew are starting to feel sendy.       1. Jump placement – You need to have an idea of what you’re building and how you’ll use the natural Read more […]Read More

What has Riley Suhan been up to?

March 18, 2016 |

What has Riley Suhan been up to?   What’s up Mountain Sledder! I’ll start this of with a little background on what happened at the end of last season. On April 7th 2015, while filming for 509’s volume 10, I injured myself on a jump in Revelstoke. Coming up short after sessioning a fun hit, I hyper-extended my knee on impact, completely tearing my ACL. It was a reality that was hard to chew, knowing I had some work ahead of me, but I knew I’d be back in no time and chomping at the Read more […]Read More

March 13, 2016 |

Style Matters. Style will always matter. Style is a way of doing something, a set of characteristics that stand out from the mundane. Ultimately it’s a method of expression. Everyone has traits that give them their own style. For this article we picked seven different kinds of styles that we commonly see and matched them up with seven riders who personify those styles.  This list is meant to celebrate the intangible aspects of these ways of riding and the people who do it.

The Avalanche Safety Disconnect

March 10, 2016 | 20

Remembering back to the days when I first started riding backcountry, I can honestly admit that I was somewhat naïve when it came to avalanche safety. I wore a transceiver and had a shovel and probe in my pack, and I thought I knew what I was doing. But it wasn’t until I had been riding avalanche terrain for 5 years that I took my first recreational avalanche course. And boy, was that a turning point for me.       The reason I am telling you this is because I Read more […]Read More

Trudeau’s First Report Card and Why Reporters are Bottom-Feeding Scum

March 8, 2016 | 1

It’s been a few months with our new Prime Minister Trudeau; the honeymoon is over so I think it’s time I check up on him. Let the post-honeymoon nagging begin. See how’s he’s doing, you know?   During the marathon election campaign in 2015, Trudeau and the Liberals made 214 promises ranging from the Syrian refugee crisis to reducing our deficit; I couldn’t really see myself making 214 promises in my entire lifetime, but I guess I have a little less on the go. So far he’s only broken Read more […]Read More
