Through overwhelming community support, local political advocacy and the cooperation of a once-reluctant land manager, the Whiskey Run Trail system went in with record speed. Already, over ten miles of singletrack dodge back and forth under a shaded canopy of fir, spruce and alder, and if you stop long enough to smell the blooming rhododendron, you can even hear the waves rolling into shore.
Dane Jewett delivers the latest issue of Mountain Life up and down the Sea to Sky Corridor (and of course rips some trail along the way).
Don't Tell Anyone I'm On A 29er...

The Tweed Valley:
The EWS Continental Series descended up on the village of Innerleithen, in the Tweed Valley. With a rich history of racing Chris Hutchens takes us through the then, the now, and considers the future of mountain biking and enduro in the area in this short film.
Sweden & Norway:
This is a small recap from our 2 1/2 week trip through Sweden and Norway. We had a blast!
First Ride On The Alpine Trail:
Threw together some clips from the first two months of riding on the Marin Alpine Trail. Rider: Evan Mercure.
Highest Volcano On Earth By Bike:
The "Nevado Ojos Del Salado" volcano stands 6,893 metres tall (22,614 ft). Our film, "Guardian of the Valley" consists of climbing the highest mountains by bike, mountains that were sacred to the great culture of the Incas.
Whismas (Official Music Video):
Starring: Matt Dennison, Andrew Santos, Kaz Yamamura, and Micayla Gatto.
Chasing The Ride:
Sarah spends the majority of her time down on our South Island trying to push her riding for the love of it. With an infectious smile and some serious skills to boot, more often than not you can find her down at Bowenvale dirt jumps fixing up and riding these private trails.
Evil - Utah:
Kyle Norbraten, Mike Giese and Graham Agassiz head to Utah to shred against the scenic backdrop of Virgin, Utah. The Black Collar crew put the Evil Following MB and Offering to the test on some fast flow trails with some solid rocky jank gnar thrown in. The Evil Insurgent and Wreckoning LB Park Bikes also came out for the boys to hit some of the famous Rampage warm up lines that cascade off the mesas.
Mike Grey - Vans:
Whenever Vans Canada Team rider, and recently appointed team manager of the Canadian Vans BMX crew, Mike Gray's name appears online we always know we can expect some street riding on the larger end of the scale. Despite possessing a massive array of technical tricks, this Canadian's ability to go big is undeniable. Filmed throughout the Great White North.
Chase Hawk - "It's Later Than You Think" - Full Part:
He first featured on the pages of DIG back in Issue 14 (Jan/Feb 2001) as a young whippersnapper kicking his bike around with effortless style. Fast forward 18 or so years and he holds a spot as one of the most respected riders out there, an icon of bike control, and possession of an ability to make the simplest (and not so simple) motions become a work of art. With many epic video parts under his belt it’s time to introduce you to his latest masterpiece (if you didn’t catch it on DVD already), released last year, his Cult “It’s Later Than You Think” section is another banger which will leave flow and style fans’ jaws on the floor. The Austin boy did it again.
Kris Fox - Mental Exodus:
Kris rides everything at warp speed and it's so fun to watch.
One Step - Miles Silvas:
Featuring Miles Silvas in the heart of the Koreatown neighbourhood of Los Angeles, "One Stop" is a five-minute, one-take line of Silvas spanning over seven city blocks.
Evolution of... NYC's Black Hubba:
A solid skate history lesson.
DC Shoes - Gotta Eat:
Australia and New Zealand are dream destinations, and the DC squad took full advantage of all their splendour, devastating spots and soaking up the good times. This is one helluva tour vid.
Grind Now. Shine Later.
Chris Boucher wasn’t supposed to be in the NBA. But he is. ‘Grind Now, Shine Later’ is the story of how he made it this far. It’s that unlikely underdog tale told again and again, but never ceases to amaze. It’s about overcoming adversity, against all odds, and turning negatives into positives. It’s about inspiring others through action. It’s about grinding now so you can shine later.
Blink Of An Eye - Aksel Lund Svindal:
Markus Eder - ''Drop Everything'' - Full Segment:
Freeride World Tour Champion Markus Eder is hysterical and one of best skiers we have ever seen. Sit back and get your fill of big airs and insane ski action.
Al Eagleton - Instinct Skis:
Al Eagleton is the founder and owner of Instinct Skis in Rossland, B.C. Al didn’t set out to build a ski company. He started teaching woodworking in a local school, but he tends to get carried away. Al now works with the help of his kids, harvesting trees from his property and building a range of skis in his own shop.
