G3 Athlete Joe Stock's New Book 'The Alaska Factor'

Alaska is a BIG, BIG place, with more ski touring terrain than you could ski in a lifetime. How are we expected to decide where to ski and when? Luckily G3 athlete Joe Stock just released 'The Alaska Factor', a guide book for backcountry skiing in Southcentral Alaska. Apparently Joe has be covering a lot of ground on his ZenOxides over the years. We caught up with Joe to learn more about his endeavour.


Yak to Nak & Back

Andy Traslin just checked in with this post from a recent adventure...

The Coqhuilla is a great area to check out for anyone living close to Vancouver.

Snowboarding All 7 Continents

"As the sunscreen seeped into our pores, a slight breeze wafted through the breathable mesh backpanels of our Osprey packs and the blazing, African sun beat down seemingly through our skin. It was 9:45 am on February 14th, and at an elevation of 6,500 feet, we started our six-hour trek from the Berber village of Imlil to the mountain hut, Les Mouflons de Toubkal—at an elevation of 10,500 feet, to officially ride and ski Africa."

The ingredients for the perfect trip recipe were simple; sunshine and powder, a ski mountaineering race, great company, and a shiny new gear set up from G3 (2014/15 ION binding on Synapse 92 skis).


Olympic Gold Medal Powder

If there's anyone we know who doesn't let good pow go to waste, it's Pat Mulrooney. He'll pack up the truck and drive to the ends of the earth for some quality turns, but luckily this weekend he didn't have to go beyond his backyard. Just outside his door, one of his favourite backcountry stashes got absolutely hammered with snow over the past 2 weeks. High quality turns awaited, but not until Canada was done claiming Gold in Olympic Hockey. In his photography blog he wrote:
