RYAN REPORT // April 1, 2018 // By


Not ready for winter to end? I feel your pain. I spent far too much of my ski season in the office and not enough – never enough – on snow, shredding powder. With some of my best turns in the last few weeks I feel like I’m getting into the groove just as powder season is winding down.

As spring sun pooches any winter snow into schmoo and mash potatoes, I settle for vicarious cold smoke to calm my jitters. Here are two edits that have helped me deal with powder withdrawal.

This short edit of Polartec athlete Baker Boyd racing through the hard wood hills of Japan stands apart from other segments from the island where it never seems to stop snowing for its lack of slow mo. It motivated me to check flight deals to Japan. If it does the same to you, contact our friends at Section 8  and ask them about 2019 dates for their tour.

Maybe it’s because I grew up on Warren Miller’s beginner lift comedy or maybe it’s human nature to love a good crash edit. Numinous was the most awarded ski flick of the season. But behind all those amazing lines and massive airs are even more gnarly fails. They just released their crash edit and it’s worth watching if for no other reason to feel better about your own skiing.
