Eternal Team rider Chas Guldemond kicked off the Dew Tour right with a second place in the slopestyle at the first Dew Tour stop in Breckenridge, Colorado. Chas ensured himself a second spot with a double backside rodeo and a steezy cab double 1260 on his second run, which scored a 90.75. To make it more impressive, during the last jump of his run, Chas had to battle a huge wind gust. It really didn’t phase him much as he stomped his last backside double cork 1080. This second place is a great start to Chas’ quest to the Olyimpic Team in Sochi 2014. Check back for more results from Chas thorough out the season.
Chas rides for Eternal, Rockstar Energy Drink, Under Armor, Electric Visual, Neff, Northstar and Kicker.
Are these girls Too Hard? I would have to say yes. Peep the whole Too Hard movie featuring a crew of girls that push it just as hard as the boys if not harder. Plus we are stoked to see our very own Fancy Rutherford destroying S#!*.

The Ride Ninja Helmet is a great audio enabled helmet. It is super comfortable and has a furry interior for extra warmth on the cold days. It also vents your goggles really well. On the front of the helmet there are holes that are designed to allow for the goggles to vent out the top. I found that it worked nicely. In the past I have worn helmets that block ed the top venting on my goggles and they fogged right up. I think the best feature on this snowboard helmet is the Dialed In fir system that Ride Snowboards uses. A dial at the rear tightens it till you get a good custom fit.
Besides the good fit and venting the audio sounds great. The ear flaps have the speakers built right in. So all you got to do is plugin your tunes and your set. I find it is a great defense for talking to boring old skiers.
If you are in the market for a new helmet the Ride Ninja Helmet is defiantly one to consider. I give it a thumbs up. So get one right here at EternalSnow.com.
With ski resorts getting busier and busier these days more people are heading to the backcounrty. K2 has a long history of blazing trail out of bounds. The K2 Panoramic is their flagship splitboard. This board is built for out of bounds riding. It has a big spoon nose and a taper tail so it floats like crazy in the powder. This board uses the Voile split system which is regarded as the best in the industry. The system allows for the board to still have a ton of torsional rigidity even though it is a splitboard. This is huge because i have ridden boards that did not have the Voile setup and the board really felt like it was split in two. With the Voile mounting system you know your on a splitboard but it feels much more solid. The Panoramic is solid at high speeds even for a splitboard.
I think one of the best parts of this board is K2 integrated skin system. The connection that the skin makes with the bottom of the board is much cleaner than a regular skin. The biggest improvement is that snow has a much harder time finding its way between the board and skin.
Why splitboard you ask. Well there is a secret that rondane and telemark skiers have known about for years. SKINS. Skinning is by far a faster mode of transportation than snowshoe. Most of all it takes substantially less energy. So you will still be able to shred after you have hiked for hours to get that perfect line.
The K2 Panormaic package is the way to go if you are just getting your first splitboard setup, it is a no brainer. We have the K2 Panoramic Snowboard in a kit that includes the Voile mounting hardware and skins so all you need to do is slap your bindings on and go. We also have the K2 Panoramic and other splitboards available as a stand alone if you already have the hardware and skins.
Well Boreal had their opening weekend festivities already, and we are stoked! Whats better is the edits are starting to get made. Here is one from our friend Tanner Misono. Technine Snowboards.
