As we do everyday, searching the internet for totally f’cking awesome videos is just part of our daily routine here at Snowboard Mag. And today, we ran across yet another GoPro video that just absolutely crushes it.
So we ask the question: What can’t a GoPro do? As cool as this video is, if it were actually capturing a fire breathing dragon with 24 GoPro cameras, we would just quit life. ‘Cause that shit would just be bonkers!

Colorado based brand Akomplice is stoked to announce their first shoe collab, one which reps their home state appropriately hard. Akomplice was tapped to create The Onitsuka Tiger X BAIT — The Colorado Eighty-Five “6,200 FT” shoe, which features a slope map insole, and the CO state colors. Brand architects Pat and Mike Liberty managed to rep their home state even further with their designs, starting with the name 6,200 FT, which is the exact elevation of Mike and Patrick’s hometown of Carbondale, Colorado. The shoes also boast CO appropriate braided hiking laces and reinforced ripstop panels, which fit in quite nicely with the Rocky Mountain crowd.
These sneakers are also BAIT’s most limited release to date, with just 504 pairs made.
Akomplice’s foray into sneaker design is also BAIT’s most limited release to date, numbering just 504 pairs. The limited edition collaborative shoe will release in-store and online to coincide with BAIT’s 1 year anniversary party on Saturday, October 19th. If you’re looking to grab a pair, make sure to stop by BAIT in Diamond Bar, CA between October 14th-17th to secure a reservation ticket, which guarantees the right to purchase on 19th. If you’re not in the west coast, fear not, you can register on BAITme.com for a chance to get an email invitation to buy the shoes on BAITme.com. The Colorado Eighty-Five “6,200 FT” will be retailing at $109.99. Happy hunting.

With 18 new inches of fresh, Crystal Mountain, WA jumpstarted their season, opening up today — Oct. 1 — for the 75 lucky skiers and riders who commented on its Facebook page. Tickets were just $15, giving rider access to what the resort considers to be lift-assisted backcountry skiing, and warns skiers to expect early season conditions.
Press Release, Crystal Mountain, WA, September 30, 2013:
The Government might be shutting down, but we are opening up! Released in a press conference at the White Room earlier today, President John Kircher announced that the 2013 Ski & Snowboard Season starts and ends tomorrow. “It’s about giving the people what they want,” said Mr. Kircher. There’s up to 18” of snow in places and we can’t let a good thing go to waste. The gondola will run from 10am-1pm for the lucky 75 who were glued to Facebook tonight!
Consider this to be lift-assisted early season backcountry skiing with very early-season conditions. Once you’ve made your sweet glory turns in Green Valley or elsewhere, you’ll have to either hike or skin back to the top in order to download (no other lifts will be running), or hike down to the bottom. Bring a backpack and plan for an adventurous day!
The cost is $15, bragging rights included. We’re not going to tell you what kind of equipment to bring as it should be obvious. This is Rocktoberfest. Ski with the weeds and early-season rockstars!
No services will be available so pack a lunch and bring water. There will be no caution signs, ropes or avalanche control so ski and ride at your own risk.
