Dhane Knakkergaard has been begging us to put him in an Edit Battle, so we made him rumage around Newschoolers until he found someone else from his home mountain. Somehow, despite years of snowboard domination, there are not one, but TWO decent skiers from Loon. Don’t tell those hipsters at Yobeat, though, or they’ll firebomb the liftline next season. At any rate, Dhane, who looks like he’d be stapled as a deranged child molester if he dressed like he does near a school instead of at a mountain, finally gets to battle his buddy Tyler Achorn (below, after the jump) after we ignored our inbox for weeks.
We’ve got a (likely not) epic cross-Plains battle between the undisputed jib capitals of North America – Salt Lake City and BroBomb c0-founders Jon Hartley and Matt Barber’s home hill, Big Boulder, Pennsylvania. Both these videos come across as weird to me – if I happened to be in Salt Lake City after it snowed, I’d sure as hell be going to all those mountains they have to ski instead of spending my day at the University of Utah, and if I happened to find myself in Pennsylvania after it snowed, I’d be driving to Vermont. Nonetheless, skiing is apparently everywhere these days. Vote to the death!
