"AIT hits the road to ride the rope-tows of the midwest. Don't leave the hill 'til your hands bleed."
The lifts shut down a little early at one of our local ski hills over here in Utah. Rather than walk away with our tails between our legs and give up, we decided to hop on our Rocky Mountain Blizzards and pedal our way up singletrack and service roads until we hit the snow line.
From there we left the bikes and skinned another 1200' where we were able to spin multiple, all inclusive laps on perfect early summer snow.
Bear sightings, bottled Coca-Cola, crop circles and Pop-Tarts. All Inclusive Ski Resorts are the best.
"I was in Indian Creek for spring break and had some luck with some projects old and new. Here are a few photos from the trip taken by Elliot Natz.
I put to rest Annunaki 5.12- and I had the honor of putting up a new route and sending it the same day! "the Prescription 5.12."
When life gives you lemons.... go skiing.
Warm temps and blue skylines. It's not every day the mountains allow a skier to explore their alpine. Here's two months worth of cell phone shots from Patrick Shehan in the Tetons, Sawtooths and Absarokas.
The mountains are out there.... go make lemonade.
Frustrated with the less than subpar conditions in the Wasatch Range, Mike Schneider and photographer Adam Clark lit out on a road trip to Idaho in search of fresh snow.
The timing was perfect as a storm cycle was passing through the Sun Valley area and we were able to connect with Banks Gilberti for a couple days of ski touring around Galena Pass just outside of town.
First afternoon in town, we caught a face melting sunset and skied blower powder back down to the car just as it got dark. Instantly, the shit snowpack back home was forgotten as we knew we were in for another full day of this in the morning.
The following two days were spent exploring different zones, telling stories, laughing and eating leftover frozen pizza from the night before. Spirits were high no doubt. Its the simple trips like this that remind us why spending time in the mountains with friends is such a key component of why we started Surface in the first place.
Can't wait for the next road trip!
GOOD ENOUGH//SE.5//EP.3//JUNIOR VARSITY – Khai, Noah Curry and J.Arens shred the rust off some park features in Boreal.
Saturday, Dec. 20th we held our first annual Alpe D'Vert event at Sundance Resort. It was a huge success! Thanks to all those who woke up early to come stack vertical! We handed out a bunch of patches today and couldn't be more stoked that Sundance allowed uphill traffic.
We spent the last few days in Idaho shooting the 2016 product with photographer, Adam Clark, Surface Pro, Banks Gilberti and Surface Founder, Mike Schneider. The snow was falling and stoke levels rising. It was nice to finally ski some powder with good friends. Here's a few crappy iPhone pics we snapped along the way. You will have to stay tuned for the 2016 catalog to see the good imagery from AC!
