Skiing in Uzbekistan is Pretty Awesome

Do the dance par­ties on the plane and vodka-fuelled gam­bling ses­sions come with the ski territory?

Uzbek­istan might not be on the inter­na­tional freeski scene yet, but after watch­ing this video, that could very well change. A group of Ger­man skiers, the White­Hearts, stum­bled upon this Cen­tral Asian coun­try, eager to dis­cover what lay ahead. Skis in hand, bizarre fly­ing con­trap­tion on reserve (is it a heli­copter? A char­ter plane? Who knows!) and go-go dancer in tow, the crew set out to explore the Tien Shan mountains—and what they found was spec­tac­u­lar. The exquis­ite back coun­try features

6 Yoga Terms, Decoded

You want me to melt? And fold?

“Now melt your heart toward the ground,” instructs your yoga teacher as you bow sto­ically into a down­ward fac­ing dog. Melt your heart? What does that even mean? The world of yoga can some­times seem like it’s taught in a secret lan­guage. Of course, the San­skrit words are usu­ally unfa­mil­iar, unless you hap­pen to be flu­ent in Sanskrit—but even words and terms in plain Eng­lish can be con­fus­ing. Here’s a guide to some of the most com­mon yoga lingo, and what

SPY Discord: Back To The Future

Take a look into the 80s.

In the 80s hair bands topped the charts, neon cloth­ing shocked the streets, and a Hol­ly­wood actor lived in the White House. It was a bold time in Amer­i­can life, a time when things got big, bright, and bois­ter­ous. The Spy Dis­cord not only pays the 80s homage, but they belong on the shelf at a Wool­worths. The burly plas­tic frames are like your favorite pair of gas sta­tion shades. Throw them in your week­end duf­fel with­out a case, no problem.

Interview with Pro Big Mountain Skier Turned Pro Snowmobiler, Nadia Samer

“…she hitch­hiked from Whistler to Van­cou­ver for her first ACL surgery and returned on the bus, all at the age of 14.”

  Grow­ing up on Van­cou­ver Island and fre­quent­ing ski resorts at any early age, Nadia Samer had a child­hood that would make many skiers envi­ous.

Now 25 years old and 11 knee surg­eries later, Samer is in a com­fort­able niche of sled-assisted big moun­tain ski­ing and

47 miles of bliss, pain, then more bliss.

There are hikes, and then there are hikes.

The West Coast Trail is one of those hikes. Located on the West Coast of British Columbia’s Van­cou­ver Island, the “WCT” requires seri­ous plan­ning and prepa­ra­tion. In return for your hard work,
