It was cold and raining, a dark Pacific Northwest November afternoon in 2012, when Jordan Manley took a break from editing an episode of his webisode series, “The Skier’s Journey.” Manley grabbed his mountain bike and joined friends at Severed Dick, a classic mountain bike trail on Mount Seymour in North Vancouver, B.C.
Manley was pinning it when he miscalculated a tight turn midway down the run. The error sent him tumbling down the steep tube. He did a backward somersault, hitting his head on the muddy, rocky path. Manley assessed himself for any damage, seemed fine, got back on his bike, and went home to continue editing his short film about skiing in Iceland. But he wouldn’t finish the episode, and he wouldn’t mountain bike or ski for over a year.

Powder Editor John Stifter planned to grill hot-dogs with Drew Tabke’s dad while watching the best big mountain competitors in the world get rad for the Kirkwood Snowbird stop of the Freeride World Tour. When that didn’t work out—an 8 foot crown on the intended venue will do that—Stifter was relegated to the couch with me and a (sometimes buffering) webcast at POWDER HQ while mitigating the snark of the immediate (not too well thought out) reactions that live tweets tend to produce. Now that we’ve had a little more time to process, these are our takeaways from the event. —John Clary Davies

La Grave’s days may be numbered. Come 2017, the lease on the Telepherique is up for renewal and, at the moment, no one has stepped forward to take it over, which means the lift might stop running in three short years.
