This past weekend we attended the Powder Awards in Salt lake City. Honoring the best action of the year in skiing, the Awards Show is one of the best parties in the action sports world. While the most prestigious award of the night is Movie of the Year, the real winner was skier, Angel Collinson. She ended up winning the Powder Poll, Best Female Performance, and Best Line (the first female to do so). We recommend you head over to Powder’s Youtube channel and check out all the action.
Gen Shimizu founded Yama Mountain Gear to cater to long distance backpackers. He has completed the Appalachian Trail, rode the Great Divide Route – on a unicycle! – and is chipping away at the Pacific Crest Trail. His philosophy on learning what each trail has to teach a hiker, and to just enjoy nature is a great lesson for all of us to learn. We expect more great things to come from his line up of top notch gear.
