Fully Auto Snowball Machine Gun

0

Hopefully this coming winter will be better then last and something like a the above video.  Hopefully… The system itself is pretty simple, take a back mounted leaf blower attach some cut PVC with a plunger on it to a Y on the hose.  Then push some pre-made snowballs in and watch the carnage.  I … Continued

Glow in the Dark Skiing

0

Ok, not glow in the dark in the traditional sense, Greed LED strips attached to the skis and poles of a professional skier.  Some drone footage of him carving up the mountain side make for a pretty cool video.  Being the actual skier though, that looks super dangerous, even with the guiding lights along some … Continued

Ski Season Is About to Begin

0

So watch this video that I’m pretty sure I’ve never posted before of some guy skiing at night with flares attached to him.  It’s pretty cool, though pretty dangerous.  I like to ski, though I don’t think I’d ever do something like that. {reddit}

Waterfall Skiing

Yes, this is as stupid as it sounds.  No, he is not successful.  No you should not try this ever.  Yes, he should rethink his life choices. Just because it’s summer doesn’t mean that you have to try and get 100% usage out of your winter equipment.  It’s perfectly reasonable to leave them sitting in … Continued

Skating on Ice

Crystal clear ice of a frozen pond in northern Sweden.  So clear is the ice and water that you can see fish swimming below.  This makes me want to move to an area where I can do that.{reddit}

Dangerous Skiing

Skiing can be a dangerous sport, I’m not talking about the too crazy extreme skiing that some people do, just the moderate kind on large back country mountains.  Take a watch on this video of a skier who fell into a crevasse: All in all, it seems like he handled himself very well.  I can’t … Continued

Glacier Bay National Park

The last entry in my profiles of the National Parks of Alaska is Glacier Bay.  It is one of the older parks in Alaska, President Coolidge made it a National Monument in 1925, and President Carter upgraded it to full Park status in 1980.  Over it’s 90 year history it’s seen countless boats bring tourists … Continued

Speedriding (Parachute Skiing)

0

This really is a crazy thing.  I’ve heard of heliskiing, that in itself isn’t crazy, but being taken to the top of an uncharted mountain in Alaska, and skiing down the impossible face of it with a parachute on your back while you navigate crevasses, 100 foot jumps, and the ever increasing threat of the … Continued

Penguins are Terrifying

0

No, that’s not Photoshopped, that’s a real life penguin about to eat a GopPro.  Photographer Clinton Berry managed to capture this shot of a penguin while in Antarctica.  Studying them for weeks, and with some luck, this shot was possible.  It’s also enough to make you second guess penguins from now on don’t you think? … Continued

Chairlifts are Strong

0

This has got to be one of the more frightening things you can experience while skiing.  When you’re skiing down the mountain, you are in control.  Sure you might not think that, but you are more or less, in control of where you are headed, and how fast to go.  When you’re on the lift … Continued
