Summer Shape-Up: Ski the Streets

Share Button


Skiing and snowboarding are great winter activities, but unless you travel to the Southern Hemisphere or go down to Mt. Hood in the summer, you pretty much give them up in favor for BBQ’ing, skateboarding, or wakeboarding. But what if you could ski and snowboard all summer long? You’d probably be into that wouldn’t you? Welcome to a new series on the evo blog, Summer Shape-Up, that will show you how to stay in shape over the summer and continue that feeling of bottomless powder as much as possible.

The Telus 72 Hour Filmmaker Showdown is just one of the many events that happen during the Telus World Ski and Snowboard Festival. Whether you are into watching the snowboard and ski contests, the concert series, the art shows, the photo challenges, or the film contests, there is something for everyone going on. The Filmmaker Showdown is one we got excited about here at evo. The challenge: you have 72 hours to film and edit a 3-5 minute movie that has to be shot within 100km of Whistler and contain a last-minute mystery prop for at least 5 seconds.

Megan Middleton at the Bluewood Bash

Share Button


evo Team Rider Megan Middleton heads down to Bluewood Ski Area in super-Southeast Washington. This tiny resort is located just outside of Walla Walla and is worth a stop on a roadtrip. Check out an excerpt from Megan’s trip down there from her blog and be sure to check out the rest because this place looks so fun.

Very few people know where Ski Bluewood is; those that do know that it is a DIAMOND in the ROUGH. My first skis and bunny hill excursions were spent at Bluewood when I was younger. These days my uncle owns the place while my cousins run it. Bluewood receives all the precipitation the NW does, but being on the east side of the state, it hardly ever rains and is always dry snow. With 2 lifts, no crowds, and snowmobile rides… the resort is all yours.

Skiing Halfpipe Gets Approved for the 2014 Winter Olympics

Welp, it finally happened. We all knew it was just a matter of time, but ski halfpipe has been approved for the 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi. It’s no coincidence that snowboard halfpipe was the most-watched event at the 2010 Winter Olympics in Vancouver. As the youth culture moves more and more into power and mass-appeal we will start to see more of these relevant sports being introduced in the Winter Olympics and hopefully some of the non-relevant events being phased out.

Ski halfpipe is only a part of the ongoing debate with the Olympic Committee, ski and snowboard slopestyle being added are still in the works. Fortunately for us the Olympics works off of TV ratings and event attendance, so sooner or later slopestyle will be added into the  games. Congratulations to everyone who put in so much hard work and energy to make this happen.

street league seattle

The 2011 Street League Skateboarding Competition is a big deal. A huge deal really, like $1.6 million prize purse huge deal. This nationally televised street skateboarding competition begins it’s first leg in our very own Seattle on the weekend of May 7th-8th. The nationwide event was created by skateboarding media mogul and entrepreneur Rob Dyrdek and is encouraging veteran pros and young guns alike to push the limits on street skating.

Tickets for the event just went on sale, and you won’t want to miss out on all these pros throwing it down at the KeyArena in May. The preliminaries will begin on the 7th and the final showdown will begin at noon on Sunday the 8th.
