The Seers – Live in Oldtown Fort Collins

Nov26

Order up! Nah, it’s not a plate of collared greens and fried chicken, but it is food for your soul. It’s an organ lead cover of the Yardbird’s classic, For Your Love and it’s by request from a menu of over 500 songs the Seers have cataloged and laminated for your musical pleasure. The Seers are a great live cover band with the perfect recipe for crowd participation and enjoyment. The depth of their cover repertoire means they have a song for you and (usually with the help of a modest donation) all you got to do is call out your favorite cut from the menus floating around. But if you really know the Seers and you want to warm their hearts, you might call out one of the original tracks from their latest self-titled album The Seers. Here, we’ll even give you a list of their upcoming shows and song to yell out for the next time you see them live. This is Brian and Sean rocking out Precious Time in Old Town Square, Fort Collins.

South Diamond – October Blower

Oct18

The skiing on Cameron Pass has been stellar this October. We snuck away from reality for a handful of dawn patrol missions to South Diamond Peak over the last two weeks. We logged three beautiful sunrises, about 10K vert of perfect pow turns, lots of smiles, and only one coreshot. Here are a few images to fuel the early season stoke.

Mosey West – Live at Hodi’s Halfnote

Oct17

mosey-west-1

Ever been to a bar with a chicken wire cage for a stage? Mosey West would probably  fit in there just fine. Their version of rollicking, distorted guitar driven country-rock is built for bottle smashing, chair tossing and sweat drenched dancing in a smoke filled barn. Think Road House, without all the fighting (they’ve got a psychedelic element more apt to cause twirl dancing than bar fights).  We think they’re one of the best local bands and they recently just rocked out Hodi’s Halfnote for our viewing pleasure, so we snapped a few photos for fun. They’re playing is heartfelt and soul driven and most of the time quite simple. They stick to  classic structures and melodies but bring in smooth harmonies and a rocking pedal steel guitar to help round out, what is for the most part, an ultra-clean sound. If you  get the chance, we’d recommend you enjoy them at a bar near you. Check out their website for more info and tour stops: www.moseywest.com

Blue Grama Bluegrass at Spring Kite Farm

Oct11

We recently had the pleasure of shooing a live performance with the up-and-coming blue grass band Blue Grama. We decided to meet at Spring Kite Farm a CSA in Fort Collins, CO run by Michael Baute, the band’s banjo player. It was a beautiful setting for some nice Colorado pickin’. After the shoot we sat down and asked the band a few questions over beers, see their answers after the video.

What If

Aug12

This isn’t your typical mountain biking edit. Reading the description, I was skeptical about having the philosopher Alan Watts dish out some rhetoric while shredding down a mountain. However – it totally works. Great filming, superb slow motion roosting and a dose of inspiration make this edit a winner in our books.

From the Film Maker:

“Free you mind and the rest will follow” is easier said than done, but it’s worth thinking about it once in a while. Are you as good in postponing to the very last moment as i am? When it comes to life, your life, this moment might be too late to get epic shit done.

The Tetons

Jul24

Yeti has a history of cranking out high quality edits in amazing locations to show off their product and this latest video is no exception! Shot by Craig Grant & John Reynolds with shred modeling by Chris Van Dine and Joey Schusler.

A land largely unaffected by the progress of man, the Tetons Range and the surrounding areas are a pristine ecosystem inhabited by a vast diversity of wildlife spreading across multiple national parks. Uninhibited by foothills on the eastern side the range rises sharply and splits upper Wyoming and lower Idaho in two. On one side sits Jackson Hole, home to the legendary ski area and playground to outdoor junkies. On the other resides the Teton Valley: a landscape dotted with hay farms and the small rustic towns of eastern Idaho. Smack in the middle, off the pass that separates the two, lies some of the most progressive mountain bike trails in America. Local riders teaming with the Forest Service have created a network of trails designed and built specifically for riding. We explored both sides of the pass and rode varied terrain from purpose-built bike park features to backcountry singletrack, clinging to the edge of 10,000-foot peaks. The experience instilled a sense in us that the locals have got it figured out here, and the need for a satellite Yeti office in JH.

Life in Focus – Lars Schneider

Jul22

Episode 5 of ‘Life in Focus’, features German adventure/sport shooter, Lars Schneider. Lars has a story to tell that’s far different from anything we’ve heard before. With a passion for exploring the outdoors, Lars pursued his dream of becoming an outdoor photographer and journalist at a very young age. He began submitting his work to several magazines, getting first published at 16. By the early 90’s becoming an outdoor photographer was a small market and not a promising option in Germany, so Lars was forced to consider work elsewhere. He tried to make the 9-5 grind happen and soon realized it wasn’t for him. While he continued to submit stories and photos to magazines, he was soon connected with the Chief Editor of Outdoor Magazine who marvelled at the photos and stories Lars was producing, and promoted him to Outdoor Magazine’s travel editor.

Fast forward 10 years–Lars and his wife Katrin are based out of Hamburg, Germany and have travelled the world, while building their photography brand, Outdoor Visions, which specializes in all types of outdoor photography from yoga to landscape to ski touring. Last year, Lars and Katrin were graced with a new member of their family, Fietje. Eight months later they’re on the road touring the South West of the United States in a 40 year old VW Van with their newborn son.
In this episode, we get a glimpse of this trip through the Great Southwest with Lars, Katrin and eight month old Fietje, to see what life is like on the road.

The Moments Between

Jul18

The Moments Between is a mini-doc featuring action sports photographer Mattias Fredriksson and his good friend Janne Tjärnström. While it’s easy to get lost in producing work – this mini-doc brings you back to the reality of it all: “It’s all about fun and creating something beautiful.” Words to live by.

Winter Park Sunset Shred

Jul12

One of our videographers/editors Andy Holloway taking some golden hour sunset loops out in Winter Park, Colorado. Between the amazing sunsets seemingly every other day and hundreds of miles of single track to explore – it’s no wonder Winter Park is known as the mountain bike capitol, USA.
