Sharks!! round 2 & some easy listening

He’s a nice shark though.

UPDATED : 8pm – New computer model for 92l

UPDATE: The forecast for 92L

“The National Hurricane Center is giving 92L a high (60% chance) of developing into a tropical depression by Wednesday morning, which is a reasonable forecast. The odds of development have increased since yesterday, as the storm has moved considerably to the northwest, away from the Equator. Now it can leverage the Earth’s spin to a much greater degree to help get it get spinning. It is quite unusual for a tropical depression to form south of 8°N latitude.”

This is taken from Jeff Master’s blog over at
He is the best in the biz.

It’s great to see some development, hopefully it will follow one of it’s more northerly tracks.

92l – potentially the first tropical storm of the season

Dr. Masters reported today that there could be a tropical storm developing off the Lesser Antilles Islands. Although the storm doesn’t have a great chance of developing into the first hurricane of the season, it’s still a start.

For some more reports on tropical developments check out Dr. Masters blog on Weather Underground.

Out of the Shadows

Western Front

Starting in December of 2010, we will be starting a new video series from the West Coast, mainly the Mantana territory. Video and editing will be mostly provided by one of our close friends who lives in Bozeman, the video series will follow him through the season at Bridger Bowl (his home mountain) and hopefully his travels across the West through a gopro HD.

Here is a little sample of the music we’ll be using this year.

A New Beginning

Today starts a new era of extreme skiing documentation. We will be providing helmet cam video with numerous cameras and angles, HD video, photo series, gear and mountain reviews and much, much more. Please stay tuned for the new website layout and the first video segment of the season.

Also, more importantly…….all of us at Ice Coast would like to send vibes to the Backstrom family, Arne Backstrom, sister of Ingrid Backstrom passed away yesterday in a skiing accident. May he rest in peace, we have surely lost far too many iconic figures in the  ski industry these past few years.
