Winter Shoes Time Lapse

1 Jan

So this isnt exactly hot off the press, but I havent posted it yet. When my winter tires came in I was more than anxious to put them on, but being smart, I waited until we had a good first snowfall to try them out. This winter Im rocking the Gerneral Altimax Arctic’s, which when studded, and combined with quattro theres definetly no messing around in the winter wonderland in which I live for 8 months of the year. Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow.

Caution: Crack

First Snowfall!

9 Oct


So yesterday morning, I woke up to a friend texting me on his way to school, 14 car pile-up on the whitemud was his message. I climbed out of bed and looked out the window, to find that everything was covered in snow! Winter may not truly be here yet but it sure feels like winter is well on the way.

So I thought what better way to welcome this new snow than to share the latest trailers for this years snowboard films! Because if you ski or snowboard, you know the itch that starts once the snowfalls. Unlike many around us, we don’t cringe at the thought of winter, we embrace it. When the white stuff starts to fall, all we can think about is being on the mountain, knee deep in powder.

So first up, a movie I just saw a couple days ago at the Garneau in Edmonton, its ‘Black Winter’, I couldnt find a good version on youtube so check this link:

Burton is releasing its film this year called ‘The B Movie’ here are a handful of trailers:

And one movie Im particularily excited about, due to its full HD quality, following in the footsteps of last years ‘Thats It Thats All’. A film from our friends from across the pond, ‘They Came From’:

Transworld has their movie coming out as well its called ‘Get Real’:

Another great looking film this year is Absinthe’s ‘Neverland’ which features Travis Rice:

Alterna Films is dropping their version of snowboarding goodness this year with ‘Elektro’:

‘Hard to Earn’ looks promising as well:

I missed the showing of Forums ‘Forever’ film last week, heres the trailer though:

And finally, it may not be a full snowboard film, but Warren Miller films are classic, and for the 60th year in a row comes a new film this winter, its called ‘Dynasty’:
