Weekend reading: Crazy skiers and crazier goats

Hello and happy Friday. It’s not quite skiing season around here yet, but I can tell people are getting excited just by the number of snow-related videos I’ve been coming across lately.

Let’s start with this insane video of a skier surviving a massive avalanche.

That thing he is wearing on his back is an ABS airbag. You can learn more about them here.

Now how about a video of 30 skiers doing a backflip while holding hands? Because, why not?

Here’s something a little more tranquil. A 45-second time lapse of frost melting at Stevens Pass. Pretty.

And just in time for Halloween, The Clymb has gear on sale to help you survive the zombie apocalypse. They even have Zom-B-Gone Spray On. Shame, it’s sold out.

National parks are open again. Yay! Celebrate by looking at these amazing photos that take a new look at national parks.

Here’s some hard-hitting news from America’s Finest News Source. The Onion reports that “Chipmunk’s Plan For Future Better Crafted Than That Of 8 Out Of 10 Americans.”

And last, but most certainly not least, you’re probably wondering what’s going on with that goat photo. Please enjoy 13 pictures of crazy goats on cliffs. I think the title about sums it up.
