Light the Wick Postcard
Dek: 
This Friday and Saturday, Teton Gravity Productions will show their latest flick, "Light the Wick."

This season, the crews from TGR traveled the world to discover new lines, new tricks, and new technology. Watch Sage Cattabriga-Alosa, Seth Morrison, Ian McIntosh, Rachel Burks, Cody Townsend, and Sammy Carlson find unskied lines in Petersburg, AK, deep powder in Croatia, and pillow lines in Italy. Also, in the first-ever 3D segment in a ski film, Sammy Carlson hits it big at Steven's Pass.

Want to meet the athletes? Stick around after the shows, because Sage, Dana Flahr, and Chris Benchetler will be there to talk about their segments in the film.

Weekend parking lot: Copper Mountain
Dek: 
Why Colorado inadvertently brought on the traffic, and what to do about it.

This week, the powers that be will meet to discuss the state of Colorado’s Interstate 70. The highway, according to the “experts” has become too crowded, and they need to “widen it”. As a frequent traveler on the highway, this got my dander up. So in the spirit of democracy, I rattled off a ranting screed to the Colorado Department of Transportation about the utter foolishness of spending billions of dollars to widen a highway that is plenty wide enough with one exception: the road can’t handle Colorado’s skier traffic on the weekends.

Blizzard M-Power FS IQ Max 2011
Dek: 
This ski is sitting by the door, waiting for the mountains to open.

Now that the snow is sticking in the mountains we’re waiting with bated breath to see which resort is going to open first, and starting to think about those first few icy, crowded turns. Even if the snow is man-made, and you end up sharing half a run with the entire population of metro Denver, skiing is skiing. Our pick for skis on the first day out is the Blizzard M-Power FS IQ Max, a high-performance carver that’s still easy to ski.

Shark!
Dek: 
Live every week like it’s shark week.

Know what always looks good? Sharks. And, if you so desire, you can ski with a shark’s mouth across your face all season thanks to Canadian company, Airhole.

I’ve had an aversion to face masks since my childhood days of snot-crusted Turtle Fur, but lately, especially on super windy days, I’ve been starting to think they aren’t such a bad idea. But I’m picky, and I only want one that isn’t made of moisture-holding fleece, or a bro-ed out bandana.

Every now and then something hits the internet that reminds us why we do what we do. This is one of those things. Enjoy, and get psyched for winter.

Contour HD
Dek: 
At The Meeting in Aspen, we headed over to Buttermilk to try dirtbiking. Contour provided HD helmet cams capture footage of the action— here's what you'll get from these tiny video cameras.

We’re at The Meeting in Aspen, which is basically a good excuse for athletes, videographers, and gear companies to get together, talk about skiing, and watch the latest flicks from TGR, Matchstick Productions, Poor Boyz, and more. After a tasty breakfast of coffee and croissants at the Limelight Lodge, we headed over to Buttermilk to try our skills at dirt biking.

The perfect pack for weekend adventures, even if you're camping inside.

Screw getting in to shape. To really get ready for ski season what you need to do is start dialing your weekend couch surfing routine. The one piece of gear you’re actually going to need this winter? A backpack. Because when you’re sleeping in other people’s living rooms it’s considered polite to keep all your crap contained.
