Taste of BC – All.I.Can™s Kootenay Street Segment

5 May

For the ski bums in the group… and weekend entertainment. An amazing video of street skiing in the West Kootenays (near my stomping grounds)! And kind of a cool song called Dance Yourself Clean by LCD Soundsystem

This short video intro by Kootenay Mountain Culture Magazine: It’s definitely one of the coolest street ski segments you will ever see on film. Not only that, it might just be one of the best ski segments ever caught on film. And it all goes down on the streets of Trail, Rossland and Nelson in crappy, grey, wet, gravelly conditions. Shot by Dave Mossop of Sherpas Cinema, and starring JP Auclair, and friends

Where the…?

2 May

The image in the header of this blog is taken from atop the fortress-like walls of Dubrovnik, Croatia’s Old Town. The structure in the image is apparently a very old water cistern/catch that serviced the inhabitants should they need to be closed off from the outside world (ie. in cases of battle). Now, the entire town is a UNESCO World Heritage site and a hugely popular tourism destination. Highly recommended.
