A Love To Crash For

Simply beautiful edit from Tyler Wallach and the USA Ski Cross crew.  If there's anything I'm excited about this season, it's the proliferation of Ski Cross crashes headed my way.


Always be sendin', Slalom Ace out.

East Coast

East Coast AF rn


Not All Heroes Wear Capes

But Christof Innerhofer does.  From today's downhill at Santa Caterina, Italy.  Top speed at the split with no goggles and a gate wrapped around his head.  Wow.  I wonder if his eyes watered at all?


Can I get an encore, do you want more?
He finished fourth overall.  Fourth.  How do you let that happen to you if you finish in 5th place.  "Yeah I coulda gone faster if I hit the wax."  Innerhofer carried a parachute down the hill with him!  Slalom Ace out.

12 Days of Christmas

On the twelfth day of Christmas
Slalom Tokyo gave to me:
Twelve B-Nets bending
Eleven crashers crashing
Ten Hirschers knifing
Nine Bodes chilling
Eight Marker bindings
Seven Shiffrins shiffing
Six Henriks slaying
Five World Cup Wins
Four new ligaments
Three Kitzbuhels
Two Lara Guts
A chick falling out of her skis!

Twister Impersonation

Twister was submitted for patent by Charles F. Foley and Neil Rabens in 1966, and became a success when Eva Gabor played it with Johnny Carson on television's The Tonight Show on May 3, 1966. However, in its success, Twister was also controversial. The company that produced the game, Milton Bradley, was accused by its competitors of selling "sex in a box". That accusation was probably because Twister was the first popular American game to use human bodies as playing pieces.

Left hand... blue dot!  Right foot... red dot!

One More Drone Video

Higher quality footage than yesterday.  This is still kinda surreal to me.  Sounds like FIS laid the hammer down on drones pretty quickly.  Probably a good idea... in a speed race this could have been so bad.



And I suppose we can show the champ!  Kristoffersen is very fun to watch.

Wet Wipe Wednesday

I would hate on this guy, but I've been in this position so many times.  Have some Chipotle before a big meeting... feel a little sleepy after filling that stomach up with meat... have a coffee to wake you up... and before you know it, you're in this exact same situation.  There but for the grace of God go I.

I generally think these events are pretty cool.  The format needs to be worked out a bit, obviously it's not that challenging... but it definitely gets the people going!  Slalom Ace out.

Ricardo Jas

AKA: "Onelegety".  This guy fucking shreds.  Pretty sure he could flip it at a Carnival, not ruling out top 10.  Definitely would beat some BC kids.  That being said... it's harder to keep going after straddling with only one leg.  Marcel Hirscher doesn't have that problem!  From ParaSkiNL in Kuhtai.

Monday Morning In A Nutshell

Believe it or not, I think this is the exact same stance I had this morning when my alarm went off.  In this analogy, the ski three feet in the air is my alarm, and I'm looking at it with the exact same amount of disgust.

Of All The Tokyo Drifters...

Spencer, you're the Tokyo Driftiest.  This could not be more textbook Slalom Tokyo Drift.  Slalom with ruts the size of Normandy shell blasts, east coast early season, late bib number, objectively weak legs... going bad, to worse... the tuck at the end!  The tuck!  The tuck!

Failure To Launch Friday

Madi, I haven't seen anyone go that head over heels since Matthew McConaughey met SJP in Failure To Launch, a film focused on a 35-year-old man who lives in the home of his parents and shows no interest in leaving the comfortable life his parents, especially his mother, have made for him there.


Any chance I get to toss in a McConaughey relation... I take it.  Slalom Ace out.

FLYGANDE FREDAG!!!

Love being the coach in that situation... not that much constructive criticism you can give.  "Well bud, you looked great!  And then you were upside down missing a ski!  And that wasn't so great."  Gotta say, I've been LOVING the skiercross support this winter!  But I still need more #telemarktuesday.

Awkward Monday Morning Crashes

These crashes are identical, and a great metaphor for life on this slow November Monday.  Maybe you're walking into your econ final that you're completely unprepared for.  Maybe you're training on injected snow with last year's trainers that are dull as driving through Nebraska.  No matter what you're dealing with, these guys are on your wavelength.  And they get it too.

Taylor Swift Tuesday/Separation Anxiety

"All you had to do was STAY": Tucker Marshall, to the base of his ski.  This is just plain unfortunate.  Really not much you can do about a situation like this.  Good luck with your season Tucker.  Hopefully the base of your ski trying to run away from you isn't a bad omen, right?


Photo of the aftermath:
Nothing a little P-Tex won't fix, right?
This is also substantial because I think it gives Tucker a lifetime achievement award from the drift.

Oh... why did I ever get out of bed today.  If I cover my eyes maybe it will all go away.  Absolutely brutal luck on the mean slopes of Stubai for Matt.  He just plain and simple deserves better.


By far the sneakiest part about this crash is that there's a lesson going on in the back.  "And if you'll turn around, you'll see a poor boy with his life flashing in front of his eyes!  Keep an eye on where his ligaments land!"

Hi all,

Thanks so much for everyone who sent in an application!  Truth be told, I didn't think anyone would apply, so I was a little overwhelmed actually dealing with it.  So that was something new.  In the end, we had eighteen applications, but one stood out from the rest.  I'd like to introduce to you...

Sam can make the good girls bad for the weekend like nobody's business.  He hit triple digits squatting (not metric) and is just starting to win the fight against puberty.  He's going to be a great addition to the STD team.  Additionally, I'd like to share the best pieces from all the applications.  First, here's a bunch of pictures of Julia and Lindsey:


















Yeah, that seems about right.  Now, onto the best answers:

Kjetil or Aksel?  Why? (Two sentences max)
  • Jansrud all day.. dudes got sweet flow, he's built like a rock and he looks like bear.
  • Aksel because he is a legend. And his hair is nice.
  • I prefer Aksel because I like the fact that he let his crash and injury at Beaver Creek force him to push himself even harder to excel instead of shying away
  • I prefer good decisions over bad decisions because if you make a bad decision it's most likely going to end up bad so at least if you make a good decision it's more likely to end up good and if not... at least you had good intentions. 
Do you prefer good decisions or bad decisions?
  • Trick question getting sendy for the boys is always a good descision
  • I prefer to make decisions regardless of their inherent quality
  • I like to make good decisions, but it turns out that I make bad ones. 
How would you deal with the two random Czech girls that always DM me dimly lit pictures of them smoking cigarettes?
  • Invite them to the promise land
  • We call the cops upon the party they are at. Everyone would be forced to leave while we throw a banger on the same night.. boom, everyone from that party comes our party including the czech girls, we take them upstairs, then we go to work.
  • There are really 2 ways to go about this:
    • 1. You could block them.
    • 2. If you're into that kinda stuff, let it happen and see where it goes, at least they're not sending videos of videos, right?
  • Send them back pictures of those people that have holes in their throat because they smoked too much then caption it "Can I get a light?"
  • I would deal with the Czech girls either by ignoring them, blocking them or telling them something around the lines of smoking doesn't help skiing, or smoking doesn't have anything to do with skiing, or smoking is bad for your soul.
  • I would take a very specific approach to dealing with the Czech girls who inbox you pictures of them smoking lit cigarettes. Fortunately they are still in the lit cigarette phase and have not gone onto eating the cigarettes straight out of the pack. The fist thing I would do is befriend them so that they trust me. They would believe that I am their friend. Eventually I would get invited over to their home in Prague or some other Czech city. While I am at their home, I would slowly replace all of their family pictures in their home to saved pictures of them smoking the cigarettes. I would do this slowly at first, as to not attract suspicion, then all at once before I leave so they can't beat me up for getting them in trouble. Finally, I would sell the cigarettes that I steal from their home, as there are bound to be many there and they would not notice any missing. That way we would both be very rich and we could buy out marker bindings and destroy them forever as they are an abomination. 
What is your favorite instagram filter?
  • Juno
  • Normal filter cause I'm not a pussy
  • Lark because it brings out the color of snow
  • My favorite instagram filter is #nofilter #hashtagblessed
  • I don't really use instagram filters because I think they're stupid. So i don't have a favourite. But I have a least favourite and that's all of them.
  • Either Willow or Slumber
  • Juno
Again, thank you to everyone that applied.  I heard skiracing.com is taking applications, if you're looking for something with a little less exposure, maybe you can work your way up to the big leagues!  We've got great plans for the upcoming season.  Congratulations, Sam.  Slalom Ace out.
