Send It Studios finds pow in Utah

Editors Note: Skiershop Team Rider Adam Mikaelian and Send It Studios have arrived in Salt Lake City, Utah. However, until a few days ago winter was still late to the party. That all changed this past weekend when Snowbird finally received a fresh nine inches of fluff. It was enough to cover the rocks for a short period and allowed the boys to slay some powder. They also found time in the dry spell to create a hilarious intro… – Erme Catino

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

Andrew Whiteford – Spinal Tap UT Part 1

Video: Andrew Whiteford
Words: Erme Catino

Our friend Andrew Whiteford just dropped this mountain bike edit on a recent trip to Utah, and since Jay Peak Resort shut its doors yesterday – the last resort standing in the East, we figured the Skiershop blog needed some summer love.

Lastly, Skiershop is holding a special through May on the new Intense Demo Bikes.  So head over to Stowe, VT and take them for a spin, some of the trails have already been riding well.

Matthias Giraud Getting Rowdy in France

Video: Matthias Giraud
Words: Erme Catino

Matthias Giraud is a professional skier and B.A.S.E. Jumper.  If you are a skier, most likely you have heard his name before or seen his edits on YouTube.

On April 25th, CNN reported a story on Matthias’s latest adventure – though according to them “the skier really triggered the avalanche by chopping the snow with his pole.”  Impressive, maybe Matthias has charges in his baskets so he can bomb start zones…but probably not.

Nonetheless, it is great to see freeskier’s in the mainstream media. Though just as when Dana Flahr was on Fox News, their story gets a bit muddled.

Here is what Matthias had to say on his most recent Ski B.A.S.E. via his website:

Here is the latest edit from GoPro! I got this footage with the help of Stefan Laude from the Office of Tourism of Megeve, France.

We climbed out of bounds to the Aiguille Croche between Megeve and Les Contamines, France for about an hour and a half.

But before you enjoy the video, I wanted to clarify a few thinks about our descent itself.

We were both wearing avalanche transceivers. Stefan Laude (speedflyer) is a local ski patroller and alerted all ski patrols in the area. The rescue teams kept visuals of us the whole time. The PGHM (heli rescue team) was on standby and in contact with the ski patrol. The avalanche path goes skier’s right of the cliff (where the slough starts in the video) so if you stay on the ridge on the skier’s left, you are out of the avalanche path. Last, the rest of the avalanche going over the edge we jumped from was triggered within the last 100 feet before the cliff. So, it is unlikely to catch you unless you fall. But, like any exposed line in the Alps, a fall means death. So, you don’t fall. And if you do, well it’s part of the game and you know that before going into it.

It was a probably the best run of my life.

Nice work Matthias!
