SGT Argentina Session 5 & 6

Our partners at SGT Argentina just dropped their final edit from Bariloche, Argentina. Their summer looked rad… though fall is finally upon us here in the Northern Hemisphere – Get psyched! – Erme

The Session 5 and 6 skiers crushed it this summer with SassGlobalTravel.com/​Argentina. Skied a ton of pow, built some jumps, and shredded some of the best lines in Bariloche. The ski crew got down to business this summer – especially Swiss shredder Piers Solomon.

UVM Ski and Snowboard Club Kick Off Meeting

Who wants some gear!

UVM’s Ski and Snowboard Club is the second largest in the country with almost 2,000 members. A club that size deserves some recognition, and Skiershop is stoked to be a sponsor. On Wednesday night, Skiershop employees Tim Pelletier and Jeff Neagle were reminiscing on their college days and slinging gear at UVMSSC’s annual kick-off meeting. It was a blast to support such a great club, all with the common goal of shredding hard!

Snow in the East

Last week’s cool down brought the first taste of winter temperatures and dustings of snow across the country, and the mountains of the West weren’t the only winners… The East Coast joined in on the fun as well, with Mount Washington, NH, picking up a coating of the white gold on the 15th and 16th. It was the first time temperatures dipped below freezing since early June! Get ready, it’s coming… – Erme

Send It Studios Season Edit

A buddy of mine, Adam Mikaelian from Send It Studios and Jay Peak Video, spent last winter at Alta, UT. Alta had a banger year along with many other resorts out west, and it was fun shredding pow with him when we were both in town.  Here is his season edit (filmed entirely on a GoPro HD), Viva La Niña! – Erme
