As per usual, things continue on here in classicly Brobomb disorganized fashion, and we’re now days without a confirmed winner of the Hot Possie’s Bula giveaway. We think it’s because they went on a detour to get more tattoos from Leigh Powis in Whistler, but we could be wrong. At least we’re honest.
In the meantime, Ian Compton showed up in Tahoe to shred the dirtiest patch of snow on what we think is the last week of on-snow camps at Woodward Tahoe before the cheerleaders take over. I’m proud to say that I have skied the past twelve months consecutively, starting last July 2011 in Argentina, which proves my dedication to the sport beyond any doubt. Now it’s okay for me to say that when it’s so hot you can’t not ski in shorts, I’m over it.
Thankfully, mountain biking has been filling the void in my life recently that is usually fill by nosebutters, flat boxes, and the odd ski touring mission (do you guys even know what that is?). Moment VP Luke Jacobson only likes doing it because it gives him an excuse to do something athletic in jorts so tight they forbid full thigh flexing, but I enjoy it for a myriad of other reasons.
None of those reasons are centered around wearing enough protective gear to pass for a member of the Metal Mulisha, however going fast and doing technical shit and turns is all part of what makes this sport so complimentary for ski addicts. Above, Dylan Siggers makes another return to the ‘Bomb with an edit about his totally radical and extreme mountain bike buddies in Canada. Looks like they’re givin’ ‘er, eh?
