Il compito che ci spetta non è semplice. Basandoci sui precedenti, una nuova ripartenza è la soluzione migliore.

    Lo stato d'animo con Sam Kuch

    Il tempo è davvero relativo, Einstein lo ha dimostrato se non altro, ma quanto può differire la nostra esperienza del tempo? Sheila Street, madre di Sam Kuch, afferma che suo figlio può rallentare il tempo. Come funziona, ci manca il cervello da afferrare, ancora di più da spiegare. Ci è comunque chiaro che guardare Sam Kuch sciare è un'esperienza sacra. L'impossibile e il completamente naturale si intrecciano. La consapevolezza che alcune cose sono solo destinate a succedere, che alcune persone sono destinate a fare esattamente quello che stanno facendo in quel dato momento. Puoi invidiarli o semplicemente arrenderti, appoggiarti e goderti il viaggio.

    Three HEAD athletes in Freeride World Tour overall top three.

    It does appear as some skiers have a special deal with the universe. A relation with gravity based on a different set of rules than the rest of us. Is this why Sam Kuch floated up to the freeriding stratosphere on a star-studded wagon? Or is he just a damn good skier. Maybe the best?

    The Bec giveth and the Bec taketh away. Never has an overall 2nd place in the Freeride World Tour been so bittersweet as for the Norwegian Olympic mogul skier gone freeride queen, Hedvig Wessel. And few bronze medals so unanticipated and celebrated as Carl Regnér’s third spot in the overall ski men rankings. Snowboarder Cody Bramwell was also seemingly pleased with his trophy for the 3rd place in the overall snowboard category. But let’s take it back for a moment and set the scene.
