In today’s world, reducing, reusing, and recycling plays a big part in keeping our earth clean and lowering the amount of waste people use. One of our own SheShreds.co ambassadors, Abigail Berg, realized this and decided to apply it to snowboarding. With her husband’s help, she created a shred spot for skiers and snowboarders reusing natural resources such as fallen logs. As a team, they took something dead and used it to create something incredible for the public’s use... that is, if you can find it. This spot is appropriately called The Log Spot.
Ahh, Summit County, Colorado; nestled in the mountains about 90 minutes West of Denver, it's a county filled with mountains, chill vibes, and good people. Home to four different ski resorts and currently the place that I, myself, call home. Summit County is an adventure lover’s paradise. From biking, hiking, camping, and climbing in the summer to skiing, snowboarding, snowmobiling and more in the winter, it is difficult to be unhappy when you are here. In this Shred Spot, we are going to focus on the winter scene of Summit County and all of the aspects that make it an incredible place to visit, and an even greater place to live.
To celebrate the first snowfall of the season at my local mountains in Colorado, this Shred Spot entry will revolve around the mountains; specifically in the Purcell mountain range, which can be found in Invermere, British Columbia. If you are and advanced to expert skier or rider and have a love for the backcountry, then keep reading. You won’t be disappointed.
It's that time of year again when Pumpkin Spice Lattes are filling our cups and Christmas songs seem to start WAY too early. But what's more exciting is the prediction for the winter weather forecast for the US from the Farmer's Almanac for the 2016-2017 Winter season. Before we jump into the predictions for the snow season coming up, we need to cover what the difference between El Niño and La Niña are because it plays a large part on our winter weather.
The Isle of Tiree, located off the West Coast of Scotland, and the western most island of the Inner Hebrides Islands, has the waves you are looking for, whether you are a beginner boarder or an expert. Since the island is located in the Gulf Stream, the water around the island stays warm for most of the year and is known as being one of the sunniest locations on the map.
