My friend Hannes sends me videos from time to time. Invariably, skateboarding is involved in some way or form. Perhaps it's a straight up video of someone skating the street of LA or sometimes, like the video below, skateboarding is just the glue that keeps people together. Regardless, they never disappoint.
A friend of mine from Sweden went to Niseko, Japan with some friends of his to ski some serious powder. They put together a really great video that I've embedded below. Insane is the only word I can think of.
Having just gone on a great trip with my Dad to Alta, UT, I'm totally going to start planning a trip there. The NY Times had a great article about the area that made me want to go there even more. It just seems like the perfect combination of a place never visited before and amazing powder skiing. And since my parents are moving to Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia at the end of the month, I might have the perfect base camp!
I don't own any of these images. I've linked to the original content (where possible), but if you want me to remove them I'd be happy to oblige.
This slideshow is insane - especially the part where they are surfing in snow and ice. Crazy! Makes me want to go on a walk-about... camping, surfing (even though I don't really know how to), and making camp fires. Someday... perhaps.
