Breaking: Douche rides snowmobile!

The male equivalent to Kim Kardashian gets frosty!

Man I’ll tell you what. I love a good snow machine ride. Gettin out there. Adventure-time. So long, world. Roads? Where we’re going we don’t need roads.

But at the end of the ride if there ain’t no secret snowboarding or deep camping or ice fishing or bird watching or…. some other adventure than what’s the fuckin point? The snow machine is a tool to get you to the thing.

But look at this tool on the tool! Dan Bilzerian, self-proclaimed Kim Kardshian with a dick, just flew a private jet to Jackson to putt around and do nothing else.

The comment on his Insta plane picture is “First snowmobiling trip of the year.” Which means he does it alot.

But what are you supposed to do? Sick turns? Float on the pow? Jump n shit?

I don’t get it. But I don’t get this either so…….. maybe it’s just me.

Win: A Travis Rice Jackson adventure!

And maybe his bike* too!

Are you a tough guy or gal filled with a powerful èlan? Do you wash your face in a frying pan? Comb your hair with a wagon wheel? Are you a hardened sinner who never says grace before dinner?

Then you should enter Travis Rice and Quiksilver’s contest to shred with him in Jackson!

The rules are very simple as you can see. Gotta be the above and then 13 – 18, enter through Instagram by hashtagging #YGSnow while tagging @quiksilver and that’s all.

Easy!

As you can also see, the contest is brought to you by Snowboarder and I assume you’ll get to be featured on that wonderful platform.

BUT…

…Travis recently left his bike at my house and so if you add the hashtag #grandtheft while tagging @lodgegrit and win I’ll give it to you*!

Good luck!

*for a quick ride around the block…but you also have to bring a bike pump because the tires are flat.

Watch: A film that will get you high!

Come smoke the Äsmosphere!

Like Smokey said, “I’m gonna get you high today. Cuz it’s Friday, you ain’t got no job and you ain’t got shit to do!”

Äsmosphere is a new short film from the legendary Austrian Ästhetiker crew. These dudes surf pow. And surf waves. And skate. And through their home-grown pow surfing movement they’ve combined elements of all 3 to achieve sideways-standing nirvana. The 3rd Paradise. What do you know about that?

Led by veteran pro Wolfgang Nyvelt and two dudes named Steve Gruber, Äsmo is incredible. And this new movie is gonna get you high.

Guaranteed.

Press play (on the vimeo button down there because control issues etc.)

And when you’re done watching the film, you’ll need one of their boards. Buy one here!

Burton: “Click with your ski bros!”

The snowboard company just discovered the HOLY GRAIL of RADICAL!

Gonna hit da boxes and da rails and you bend down to STRAP IN then look up and your SKI BROS ARE GONE and you have to ride da park with the autistic kid from woodshop because he lost his poles gettin off the chair!

SHIT!

But thanks to Burton maybe never again. They just discovered snowboarding’s Shangri-la! The motherfuckin FOUNTAIN OF RAD!

CLICK IN BINDINGS!

CLICK IN BINDINGS!

CLICK IN BINDINGS!

CLICK IN BINDINGS!

The Associated Press reports:

Snowboarders now have a new way to click with their ski friends.

The typical rider’s hassle of bending down — or sitting down in the snow — to buckle boots into the bindings while skiers in their group wait could be a thing of the past.

A new technology that enables the boot to snap onto the board similar to a ski binding has the potential to inject fresh life into a sport that has been dealing with slowing growth for the last decade or so.

After more than four years of research and more than a decade of trying to find the answer to a question that has long perplexed snowboarders and manufacturers alike, Burton Snowboards is releasing its new Step-On binding — touting it as a time-saver that won’t negatively impact performance. The binding goes on sale next fall and will run between $250 and $400.

“We asked the question, ‘What if?’” said Chris Cunningham, Burton’s vice president of product. “What if I could save 30 seconds per run?”

Multiplied by the 10 to 15 runs an average rider logs on any given day, a 30-second difference could mean an extra trip down the mountain per day. Over years, that number could add up into the hundreds. Meanwhile, the binding means less delay, less getting hands wet while fiddling with straps and buckles, less time the skiers in the group have to wait around for their snowboard buddies to prepare their equipment after they get off the lift.

You will never be left behind again. And get a whole free extra ride down the mountain per year. And the snowboarding industry is saved.

THANKS BURTON!
