Tahoe based Moment riders KC Deane and Scott Nikkel have embarked on a season-long project to document their winter as it happens. The result is an ongoing series of light-hearted and tightly-edited webisodes featuring themselves having a great time doing what they do best—park, powder, big-mountain and everything in between.

Winter on Winter, bars
Dek: 
Our online columnist, Tom Winter, explains why it's OK to frequent the same watering hole.

The scariest moment I ever had in skiing was when I finally caught up on a couple of years worth of tax returns and added up all of my receipts. Those receipts included everything I’d spent over a two-year period at a local bar in Vail. Let’s just say that the grand total for those years at that particular watering hole was a bit, well, breathtaking. Especially when I remembered that I’d been frequenting that particular establishment for nearly two decades.

Meet our new online columnist, Tom Winter. In his first post, he gives us a recap of the best powder days of his life, including the day he survived an avalanche and tore his knee to pieces in Colorado's backcountry, and he looks forward to 2010.

In this, my first column, I’m aware of a sense of heaviness. An ugly wall of gray that looms distantly, or certain kind of darkness: a glimpse of ugly Goth kids sulking in shadows or a big storm about to pulse over the horizon. It’s because I’m supposed to say something big or profound and kick things off with a bang, maybe announcing a weird controversy surrounding Bode Miller’s love child or a declaration that I’ve become a snowboarder.

We spun a few laps on Squaw Valley's Granite Chief chairlift last week with pro skiers Mike Wilson and Tim Dutton. After watching Wilson throw several backflips, they told us what their plans are for the new year.

Pro skier Tim Dutton is pressuring fellow pro Mike Wilson to throw a switch backflip off a 15-foot cliff near Squaw Valley’s Granite Peak chairlift on a day just after Christmas last week. I’m standing on top of the cliff waiting to see what happens. Pro skier Jackie Passo is watching from below.

Sarah Nicole Fowke
Dek: 
Some things are harder to lie about than others. A female skier using her boyfriend’s pass at Keystone finds that out the hard way.

 

On November 29th, Sarah Nicole Fowke was stopped by a ticket scanner at Colorado’s Keystone Resort when she showed a pass with a man’s picture on it. When questioned, she claimed to be in the middle of a sex change, but couldn’t give any personal information beyond a birthday. After the sheriff was called in she admitted to borrowing her boyfriend’s pass. And lying.

Patagonia Nano Puff Pullover
Dek: 
Lightweight warmth for cold-weather wimps.

Blame genetics or an intrinsic wimpiness, but I am always cold. Always. On sunny days in April I’ll wear two down jackets to hike uphill. I try to be tough, or layer until I can hardly bend over, but I’m always on the lookout for something that can keep my core temperature up. And I refuse to wear any clothes that have a battery or any kind of electrical system. On my first truly bitter ski day of this season I layered the Patagonia Nano Puff Pullover under my shell.

perky jerky
Dek: 
Now, even your meat snack can get you juiced.

Sometimes, when you combine two awesome things their amazingness is so compounded that it can just about make your head explode. Peanut butter and Fluff, for instance: transcendent. Miley Cyrus and Notorious B.I.G: borderline life changing. But sometimes, the powers combine into something more bizarre than brilliant. Like, caffeine and desiccated meat. 

Enter Perky Jerky, the world’s first performance-enhancing meat snack.

Jessica makes some nice turns a earns herself the cover of Snoworld.

It's amazing how in 60 years so much has changed and so much has stayed the same.

This week Warren Miller’s Dynasty premiered in Boulder, Colorado. This year is their 60th anniversary, imagine that—60 years. That’s 1,200 minutes of skiing at hundreds of different locations all over the world. It is the history and legacy of Warren Miller that intrigues me most. This year's film has a ton of mouth-watering archival footage. Sure, I love to watch people send 80-foot cliffs and slide 30-foot rails but, there is something about those neon hot-doggers that really stokes me out. They were cool when cool was new.

The Transitions Premiere, Red Bull HQ
Dek: 
Transitions, a movie by Riley Poor about Simon Dumont and Tanner Hall, screens at Red Bull Headquarters in Santa Monica. We were there to check out the party: DJs, girls in shiny dresses, and Red Bull vodka cocktails.

The Red Bull headquarters are easy to find, just east of the Pacific Ocean but not quite Hollywood. There are no VIP valets, no paparazzi, no red carpets. Outside, a DJ spins reggae and dancehall beats from a pimped-out Red Bull truck. Tonight, October 15, Transitions, a film by Riley Poor about Red Bull athletes Simon Dumont and Tanner Hall is premiering tonight at Red Bull HQ.

Awful Awful
Dek: 
The Biggest Little City in the world has plenty of meals and drinks with funny names you’ve probably never heard of but should try.

It’s going to happen. You’re going to end up in Reno. The so-called Biggest Little City in the world is within an hour of Mt. Rose, Alpine Meadows, Northstar, and Sugar Bowl. While you’re there you might want to consider trying the brandy-based Picon Punch or the Awful Awful—a local culinary masterpiece.
