As skiers wait for snow, Legislature tackles burning issue.
The après beer is so much a part of skiing. But which resort will be the first to feature a slopeside marijuana lounge?
That might still be hard to imagine, but another ski state, Vermont, may soon join Colorado and Washington in making the sale of pot legal.
Vermont Gov. Peter Shumlin announced his qualified support for legalization in his State of the State address last week. And the state’s Legislature will take up the issue as it embarks on a new session.
From Japanese storms to old-world Alps exploration, DPS finds the goods in its ski-film shorts series "The Shadow Campaign: Volume II."
This year, DPS returns in the second Cinematic series as they ski in Japan, Italy, and Switzerland. The dream is chasing deep storms, and 2015 delivered as the skiers find cold, relentless Hokkaido storms, and old-world Alps exploration. And this year, Stephan Drake, Santi Guzman, Olof Larsson, and Piers Solomon join forces for timeless pow-riding magic.
DPS is releasing a short ski film every four weeks starting September 22. And we'll have them all right here.

Jackson Hole is a pretty serious place. It starts with the ski area’s terrain, which is gnarly enough that the management posts huge signs at the top and bottom of the Tram warning people to take it easy or they might get killed.
Brian Mohr was tired of sketchy avalanche conditions, so he moved East where there’s a growing backcountry community.
In the ski world, you often hear stories of East Coasters fleeing west to find the Promised Land. They leave behind their humble, icy pasts for extreme, powder-filled futures, and never look back. But what you don’t typically hear are the stories about people who do look back—people who went west only to find that their Promised Land, it turns out, is still in the east.Brian Mohr, a photographer and backcountry skier now living in Moretown, Vermont is one of those people.
The monsters I’ve created—twin 15-year-old daddy’s girls—are getting pretty hard to impress. It’s not their fault: I’ve dragged them to nearly every resort in the East, where they’ve stayed in the nicest hotels and dined in the best restaurants. Still, I can’t help wanting them to enjoy our family ski trips. So this year we’re heading further afield: Mont Tremblant.
