January 2018 is almost over. The Western season is actually starting now, with actual snow falling from the sky. (Sorry about the rain, East Coasters, but hey! At least your snow guns still work and the cat drivers feel important, right?) Europe is buried, Japan is still dreamy and there’s a lot of people in Bulgaria for some reason. We’re hyped to go adventure sporting from now on. The US Olympic team has been named, Winter X Games are on TV (so far we’ve caught a little bit of some sort of made-for-tv judged snowmobile race that seems, well, dangerous.) Speaking of danger, another snowboarder went missing in a blizzard at Mt. Baker. The very legendary Warren Miller passed away sour pour one out for him. SIA/OR is under way in Denver, (we would have gone but when we tried to sign up, it wanted us to pay $650 for media passes so we said, nah, and stayed in Portland.) The story here is powdery too, and much less full of exciting staffing announcements and glamourous premieres. But you can still download Landline on iTunes despite Net Nuetrality (click that link you won’t regret it). And if you’re not going snowboarding, you can do the next best thing: watch snowboarding! Here are the most exciting edits to hit our INBOX this week.
