Here are some photos from Paige Brady’s backcountry ski trip to Mt. Rose last weekend. Paige is an intern at Type T Media. The Alaska native is a senior at UNR, former Nordic racer and ripping telemarker. She plans to ski at Squaw and travel to compete in the telemark freeskiing competitions this winter. Paige says the snow was deep in Coyote Bowl on Novemer 8th and 9th and she didn’t hit a single rock. Photos by Corky Still.
Check out our recent trip to China. We got invited along with about 20 other base jumpers to go on a very unique trip to the Three Gorges area in China to jump into the world’s largest sink hole. Another one of those once in a lifetime experiences courtesy of a guy named Stephan Mueller, the Chinese government and Red Bull. Here is the link to the video that Red Bull put together. Click on the “watch in high quality” option. High fives to G and the other jumpers who are also in the video. – Shane McConkey
A few of us got out for our first ski of the season with a wonderful dawn patrol. The snow was better than I had anticipated and my bases are still intact. We went up to East Bowl at the Rose Ski area, meeting one guy in the parking lot and two borders up top on our last run (they were boarding the other side). – David Fiore
So I’ve taken a little time off from writing here to have a baby. The little snow monkey was born on October 13th and experienced his first snow storm last night. Truckee is blanketed in white and Squaw is reporting 14 inches of snow.
Here’s a photo of Eagle’s Nest so filled it that it almost looks easy…
