  1. Κάποια ενδιαφέροντα στοιχεία για την κινητικότητα από τη Google. https://www.google.com/covid19/mobility/
  2. Celebrating the halfway mark of the project (in number only), this special episode goes into showing how the research, ski community and planning come together to make each line successful. Diving into the applications, websites, people and decision making process days before even arriving to a zone, the process behind the scenes is shown to highlight some of the resources necessary to make this project feasible. Joined by Tucker Patton, guide / owner of Triple Point Expeditions and photographer Ming Poon, the crew makes a blitz to Idaho and tackles an iconic couloir in the Sawtooth Mountains. This is Episode 25 for The FIFTY, and line 25 completed by Cody Townsend. The FIFTY is a project following Cody Townsend as he attempts to climb and ski all fifty of the lines and mountains chronicled in the book, "The 50 Classic Ski Descents of North America." The series documents Townsend's journey's, travels, challenges and each line and mountain listed in the book. It's a journey through the most majestic mountains and ski lines in North America along with a unique insight into how skiers make decisions in the backcountry, how they plan, navigate and safely move through the mountains and the people that dedicate their lives to the mountains.
  3. The world has suddenly changed. For most of us, it has stopped completely. In the scheme of things, skiing is suddenly not very important. Collectively, globally we're all trying to get through this age of COVID-19 and for this project, the thing I've devoted my life to, it means joining you all in staying home, not traveling and keeping this disease from continuing to spread. In this episode, the project status is told along with a really amazing story from the CEO of Arcade Belts, Tristan Queen. A story based upon fighting for your community, your employees and for the health of the world. It's a small story from a small company, but let's hope it inspires hope in a time filled with anxiety and dread.
  4. Live call with Cody Townsend, Bjarne Salen and Ryan Dunfee, the "Give'r the beans" guy from Mt. Washington Episode. In the live chat we talk about the east coast vs. west coast, the current state of The FIFTY amid the COVID-19 pandemic and how Bjarne and Cody met and their partnership on the project.
  5. The FIFTY involves a lot of driving and a lot of camping. The rig that gets Cody around North America is a 2019 Ford Ranger equipped out with a GFC Camper and a bevy of storage, organization and car camping tools. In this episode, a tour of the truck is given to show how the truck was customized for chasing classics across North America. Sneak peak at cinematographer extraordinaire Bjarne's Salen's custom built Ram Promaster Van along with a guest appearance by van life connoisseur Jimmy Chin.
  6. Νομίζω πως η φετινή σεζόν δείχνει και το πόσο σημαντική είναι η σωστή διαφήμιση και επικοινωνία του προϊόντος τόσο από το χιονοδρομικό (π.χ. "Όσο και αν ο καιρός δεν μας κάνει τη χάρη εμείς έχουμε τις δυνατότητες να σας προσφέρουμε εξαιρετικές συνθήκες πίστας και μερικές οφφ πιστ διαδρομές"-φωτό 1, 2 κλπ) όσο και από τον κόσμο που επωφελείται από τη λειτουργία του. Παλαιότερα θυμάμαι (τέλος Μαρτίου) να σταματώ στην Αράχωβα για να ψωνίσω και υπήρχαν άτομα που με ρώταγαν εάν έχει ακόμα χιόνι...
  7. Standing watch above the Mt. Baker Ski Area in Washington state is Mt. Shuksan, a towering mountain that steals your eye and sends shivers down your spine. Its glaciated terrain is always moving, letting loose torrential avalanches at a moment's notice. Its northern faces are steep, wild and fraught with peril. It takes perfect timing along with a union of perfect conditions to ski it. After ten years of waiting for that union, the time has come. Having spotted a solid weather and stability window, the Fifty crew camps out at the legendary Mt. Baker Ski Area parking lot and is joined by fellow Salomon athletes Stan Rey and Alexi Godbout for an attempt to ski the steep and heavily exposed Northwest Couloir. While conditions seemed perfect from afar, the mission gets thrown into jeopardy by a sudden shift in winds and a whole lot of question marks. This is Episode 24 for The FIFTY, and line 24 completed by Cody Townsend. The FIFTY is a project following Cody Townsend as he attempts to climb and ski all fifty of the lines and mountains chronicled in the book, "The 50 Classic Ski Descents of North America." The series documents Townsend's journey's, travels, challenges and each line and mountain listed in the book.

  9. Πραγματικά θλιβερό να μην υπάρχει κανένα αίσθημα ευθύνης προς το κοινωνικό σύνολο σε μία κατάσταση που απειλεί τη δημόσια υγεία. Ελπίζω τις επόμενες ημέρες να γίνει αντιληπτή η σοβαρότητα της κατάστασης και να προσαρμοστούν όλοι (πριν να είναι αργά) γιατί απ' ότι βλέπω μέχρι στιγμής φαίνεται το αντίθετο για μία μεγάλη μερίδα πληθυσμού (παραλίες σήμερα, καφετέριες τις προηγούμενες ημέρες κλπ).
  10. Οριστικό τέλος σεζόν λόγω της παρούσας κατάστασης...
  11. Όσα γνωρίζω έχουν κλείσει ή κλείνουν αύριο.
  12. Ελβετία έχουν ξεκινήσει να ακυρώνονται χιονοδρομικά events προς το παρόν... Ωστόσο νομίζω πως αυτό μαρτυρά που πάει το πράγμα τις επόμενες ημέρες... Η σεζόν πραγματικά θα μείνει στην ιστορία, δυστυχώς για άσχημους λόγους. Edit: Ανακοινώθηκε κλείσιμο αθλητικών χώρων και τα καταστήματα εστίασης θα έχουν μέχρι 50 άτομα...
  13. Μερακλήδες πάντως οι riders! [emoji23][emoji23]
