October In The Rockies

The first snow fall of the season always gets us excited for what’s about to come. Yea.Nice’s very own Ryan Wachendorfer who lives in Eagle County, Co woke up two days ago to snow capped peaks. Ryan couldn’t help the urge but to get up into the freshly fallen white stuff. He called his friend and within the hour the two of them were heading up Beaver Creek resort in Ryan’s Jeep.

HDHR At Bear Mountain

Hot Dogs And Hand Rails started as a small event about 8 years ago, and has now transformed into a massive season kick off party at Bear Mountain, Ca. Thousands of people come out to watch some of the biggest pros in the sport battle it out on the urban features that Bear Mtn. sets up. The pros do not hold back at all. With 10k on the line for the winner and thousand more for “best trick” and other awards they take this early season set up seriously. Who wouldn’t want to start the season off with a few thousands dollar in their pocket.

This year Bear Mtn out did themselves with two massive street set ups. They had wall rides, handrails and even a small jump for these guys to showcase their skills. The weather cooperated and the cool temps made it feel like a normal day of snowboarding in Southern Cal.

Dirt Roads With SOF

Jeff and Kelly from SouthOfFrance music group have been very busy working on their highly anticipated second album. After spending a solid month locked in the studio, Jeff Cormack the lead singer, decided it was time to get out and do a little adventuring. Jeff did some research and decided to take on the grueling dirt roads of the Colorado High Country.  They attempted to drive from Denver all the way to Durango, but they didn’t want to touch pavement the whole time. Normally the drive from Denver to Durango is about 7-8 hours but when you go on dirt roads that have cliffs on each side and sometimes un passable boulders, the drive gets a lot longer.

Jeff and Kelly and their two dogs drove through the day negotiating the roads.  Jeff said most days they wouldn’t see another vehicle or human for up to 5 hours at a time. After driving for as long as they could they would stop and set up camp, and review maps for the next day. Although they didn’t make it all the way to Durango they did make it to Red Mtn. pass and it took them about a week. Jeff learned a lot and is determined to return next year to conquer the roads all the way to Durango.
