STOKE THREAD

Post by vinman » Mon Jan 30, 2012 4:23 pm

I figured we need a stoke thread for pic of us and our skis/boards in action. Post up your best action shots from the mountain. The only requirement is the snow sliding equipment in the pic needs to be built by you. Bring on the stoke!!!

LOVE the idea of this thread!

I don't have many photos of me skiing, but I have lots of GoPro video (as I'm sure others do... seems like everyone and their brother has a gopro on the mountain now).

I'll try to get some of my videos online.

This video is from last year, not sure if it will work for folks...

All I have... Not much. From last March at Okemo. I've since traded the skis for a Adirondack ski chair.

Today was not the worst day skiing I've ever had. Sunny, deep powder in the Alpental backcountry, basically nobody on the chairlifts.

Here is one from me:

And here is one from Kevin (he's also on homemade skis):

Nice twizz. I'm considering a go pro or contour cam for pow days.

All right, here's one action shot... unfortunately the grooming was not that great so we cannot see the skis...
