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. The peaks are part of the Coast Mountains but further inland, where oit seems to be a little colder on the summitts and the snow a bit drier. No logging road approaches, just steep, short & steady climbs to the summits.


65' Of Snow + Dolomites = Pure Awesome

G3 athlete Chad Sayers joined Henrik Windstedt and Mattias Fredriksson for the biggest snow year the Italian Dolomites had seen in 50 years. No big deal. Fortunately (or unfortunately for the jealous type), Powder Magazine assembled this mouth watering photo flipbook feature so that we can vicariously experience the storm of the half century.



Season Funk Remedy - Canoe to Ski

Coming back from a busy racing season in Europe and beyond, I flew back to the Maple Leaf country (Canada, that is) after 2 really draining stage races. I had an amazing race season and I am grateful for all the new mountains skied, the new friendships formed and emotions shared. After such hype, I always find myself in some sort of post-race funk. But this year would be different I thought to myself. Yes, returning to weekend warrior life poses a bit of a schedule challenge, but I am far from being ready to “hang the skis” for the summer.


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."

G3 gear ambassador Sean Busby recently completed his goal of snowboarding all 7 continents. Congrats Sean. Way to keep the dream alive.
