Jason Arens Summer Ski Edit Get Rich, Or Don’t

Just catching up with Jason Arens this summer and it looks like he has put together a couple new tricks for the upcoming season. Gone are the days of whipping 1080+ spins. This year, the game is to tweak those grabs harder and float nothing more than 5s.

Tanner Hall Invitational Recap- Henrik Harlaut Ices It

Tanner Hall

The session started off a little slow with everyone having to get used to the transitions. When you take the best riders in the world and set them on this course, it’s only a matter of time before they start throwing down.  Henrik Harlaut killed it bringing both a combination of his trademark nosebutters in the QP and also sending it deep down the hip with really big floaty stuff all day.  Torin also threw a nasty dub 12 over the spine.  BDeving charged the spine early and had a combo of break downs mixed with some pretty huge air.

Gotta say, we were surprised how well the Jumbo Boombot skied down the mountain.  Kept the session in a mellow vibe with a favoring towards reggae to keep the them in line.  The comp maintained a great vibe with these guys just casually riding and enjoying late season conditions.  ZERO STRESS DAY.

Also shoutout to the other sponsors including GoPro, Armada, Rockstar, and MontBleu.  Big thanks to Tanner and Iberg for putting on the event and letting us bring some tunes on the hill.

How to nose butter on skis

Nose butters are really hot right now thanks to Henrik Harlaut and is ridiculously sick nose butter dub cork 12s.  Just some things you should know before you get silly with this endeavor.

  • Nose butters can be done on most jump features, but we recommend working your way up from knuckles of jumps and eventually onto the jumps themselves.
  • Easier to do on lips that don’t have tons of pop or on knuckles with steep landings
  • Stiffer the ski, the faster you have to go to  really benefit from the flex of the ski

So without further adieu, follow these simple steps and learn to enjoy a trick that can be performed just about anywhere of just about anything.

  1. When you’re going up to the feature, be in your normal scissored and exceptionally fresh thug stance but do keep your knees bent slightly.
  2.  As you approach the lip/knuckle, keep your head focused on the point where you will initiate the butter.
  3. Once you are at the edge of the lip, start turning but keep your head focused on the lip.  This will allow your tails to lift and pivot around while loading up the shovels of your skis.  Your knees should straighten out but don’t POP.  Controlling the timing is everything.
  4. The flex of the skis will launch you airborne.  At that point, your rotation is very naturally set so don’t be afraid to put an extra 180 in there and take it to five.

We hope you found this useful.  If you’re looking for a little mobile sound to keep the stoke factor up, check out our speakers at the Boombotix boutique.  Be sure to stay tuned for the next Good Enough episode with Jason Arens, Noah Curry and the whole crew.
