Pro skier Julian Carr has been known to front flip off 200-foot cliffs in the Utah backcountry. Here's some helmet cam footage he shot doing just that—plus some bonus footage from Northern Escape Heli skiing.

This week's massive storm on the East Coast nailed Pennsylvania and Washington D.C. with several feet of snow. One lucky guy even got some powder skiing on the steps of the Philadelphia Art Museum. Here's a video.

The opening ceremony of the Winter Olympic Games in Vancouver is Friday night and what better way to pay tribute to America's best hope for Olympic gold in women's ski racing—Lindsey Vonn—than showing off her video from the recent Sports Illustrated swimsuit issue.

Couldn't throw down for a ticket to Vancouver? Now you can ski Whistler virtually from your laptop, courtesy of Google's street-view snowmobile

Using Google Maps' street-view feature, I just noticed that my neighbor Stan had left his garage door open—or at least he had on the day Google's Orwellian street-view vehicle rolled through our 'hood. That I can almost look into Stan's garage from my computer scares and fascinates me simultaneously. Now Google has something for those of us who like to mix a little skiing with our voyeurism: the street-view snowmobile. That's right. Google has unleashed a snowmobile mounted with multidirectional cameras onto the slopes of Whistler.

Great to see some killer ski photography up on the Photo District News "Photo of the Day" blog. It's a nine shot gallery, so that would be photos of the day, but all the better, right?

Check out the Gallery here. We're expecting to see "tons more great stuff" from Gunderson this season.

These are the kinds of avalanches that are best seen on video. You don't want to be around when they're going down. The power, destructive force, and raw intensity are unreal. We've all seen snow move. But these clips take it to another level – if you can handle the cheezy music.

Essentially the Oscars for ski movies, the Powder Magazine Video Awards took place Saturday night in Aspen, Colorado. Skiing Magazine crashed the party to watch the pros on the red carpet and see which film earned Best Picture.

My favorite ski-film segment has to be the following gem from Blizzard of AAHHHs.

I'm not exactly sure why I love this segment so much. It's the bit about Telluride from the Blizzard of AAHHHs, Greg Stump's 1988 classic. It's an intoxicatingly odd blend of the Awesome (bump skiing in Club A outfits, Alpha Blondy tunes, Zudnik the Wonder Dog) and the Uncomfortably Awkward (Rasta Stevie's barely intelligible ranting). Now that I think of it, though, Rasta's ranting qualifies as awesome, too, in its own special way.

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.
