How much finesse does it take to ride a “snow kayak” off a cliff? Not much.

But you might want to wear your ColdAvenger….
If you live in North Dakota, cold weather can sometimes interfere a bit with your outdoor time. But, the folks at Great Northern Bicycle Company in Fargo beg to differ. No biking in winter? Why the heck not? All you need is the right equipment. Naturally, ColdAvenger is the perfect face protection.
Here’s what they have to say:
Find your inner winter-ninja with the ColdAvenger masks by Talus. The perfect addition to anyone’s arsenal of cold-weather riding gear, it give coverage to your face, neck, and ears.
YEAH! Check out the full blogpost.
So, get out there and hit the snow on two wheels – WE DOUBLE DOG DARE YA!
In our last post, we challenged you to get out on your bike with your ColdAvenger on as the temperatures dip. The folks at Geargals.com appear did just that. They recently did a review of the ColdAvenger Expedition Balaclava for cold weather bike rides.
We couldn’t put it better than this–from Geargals:
“This is the best one I’ve tried so far, since it lets the moisture-laden exhalations out instead of funneling them up to fog up my goggles and build up inside in the form of sweaty slime. It took a full hour to get a fog started on my goggles today in single digit temps which was a nice change from the mere ten minutes of open vision I usually get with my regular balaclava.”
The O’Shaugnessy Center in Whitefish, Montana was packed with powder lovers on Sunday for the Third Annual Whitefish Mountain Films. Pro skiers Julian Carr and Chris Rubens were on hand to share some stories give some love back to the community.
With great films illustrating mountain culture from a tribute to local snowboarder Aaron Robinson, to meat-hucking GoPro edits, to skiing with the President of the Republic of Georgia, the films offered diverse education and entertainment. Black Star beer provided their signature brew in their new tallboys, and a massive raffle dotted the evening with edge-of-seat fun.
Talus was well-represented, of course, and a lucky ticket holder walked away with a ColdAvenger Classic.
Join us this Sunday, November 13th in Whitefish for the big film event of the year – the 2nd Annual Whitefish Mountain Films.
Up here in NW Montana, you never know what (whom?) you might encounter when you hit the mountaintops. For anyone who has schushed The Big, just off Chair Two, Mountain Jesus is a familiar companion.
A statue installed in 1955, and viewed by many as a memorial to WWII Veterans, it’s no surprise that the news it might be taken down has stoked some serious controversy in these parts. The National Forest Service heard the wrath of a large number of folks when they announced they would not be renewing the permit for the statue on NFS land. A “save Jesus” Facebook page has erupted (the irony here is too thick to even touch!), and so much outcry has been heard that they have decided to reopen the consideration of a lease renewal.
For us, we like Mountain Jesus because he’s been there as long as we can remember, and it’s always fun hitting the powder with Jesus at your back.
No politics, no religion, just cool dude up on the mountain, giving us that comforting look as we tempt death once again with some lumber strapped to our feet.
Hope things go ok for you, Mountain Jesus.
Marek Klanowski is a badass. Among many things, he bicycled his way through the Russian Caucuses, culminating in a climb of Mt Elbrus (by number of deaths, Elbrus is one of the World’s deadliest mountains.) Marek Klonowski is a man of action and of many talents. Traveling, taking still images and shooting films is his passion, and climbing mountains, hitchhiking, cycling long distances and sailing is his way of traveling. Marek climbed in the Tatra Mountains, in the Dolomites in Italy, in the Kackar Mountains in Turkey, in the Caucasus Mountains, and in Alaska (first solo Denali traverse in history – from Wonder Lade to Base Camp). He traveled solo by bicycle from Poland to the Adriatic Sea (3000 km), around the Black Sea by bicycle (6700 km), and around the Baltic Sea with a 45 kg dog on his trailer (5600 km). He raced in the Olympic class 470, sailed to Svalbard twice, and has worked on the biggest sailing ship in the world. Last year he spent in Ireland working as an engineer…
So, yeah, Marek is ColdAvenger material. This year Talus is sponsoring Marek on his attempt at a winter ascent of Nanga Parbat in Pakistan. ColdAvenger will give him the edge as he attempts this never before completed feat. Check out the video from his attempt last year.
You can visit his website. It’s in Polish, but the amazing films require no translation…
