It’s getting hot and we’re not doing a whole lot of skiing right now, but now is the time to prepare. The bums talk about some of their off-season planning for winter.

in general, the mountains and ski areas in the northern half of the United States will see more favorable ski conditions than ski areas to the south. The ski areas in the PNW and in the Northeast could see big winters with copious amounts of snowfall.
While snow is falling in Oregon, parts of the northern rockies are looking to get some snow later this weekend. As of now, the forecast is focusing on snow falling on the Beartooth Mountains of southern Montana. That said snow should fall in the Tetons, Yellowstone, and Glacier as well by Sunday night/Monday morning.
Iceland had a hell of a run in the Euros this year and their thunder clap was heard could be heard around the world but this tiny Atlantic island nation has so much more to offer than unpronounceable last names and world's strongest men. This entry to the REDirect Explore 2016 contest by Matt Hardy showcases what Iceland has to offer in the way of skiing and if they ran this a commercial I think they would see a bump in tourism.

An initiative that would legalize the recreational use of marijuana in California officially qualified for the Nov. 8 ballot on Tuesday as the campaign for the measure has taken a commanding lead in fundraising for the battle ahead with opponents.
Justice Minister Wilson-Raybould announced today the launch of a task force to advise the Canadian government on how best to move forward with its plan to legalize marijuana.
The nine-member task force will be chaired by Anne McLellan, a former deputy prime minister under Paul Martin who also served as a health and justice minister.
Smoking marijuana may change the way people's brains respond to certain rewards, such as the prospect of winning some money, according to a new study.
In the study, participants played a game in which they could win a small amount of money. The researchers found that the brains of people who smoked marijuana did not respond to the idea of winning the money as strongly as did the brains of people who did not use the drug.
Imagine a video game that allows users to grow and sell weed, interact with celebrity smokers of the stuff, and ultimately build a citywide marijuana empire. Except, don’t imagine it. Because it exists, right now. It’s just a little under the radar, surprisingly.
Hemp Inc. is a mobile title from HKA Digital Studios led by former Call of Duty and Tony Hawk developer Danny Hammett, which plays a lot like FarmVille, except for the Facebook interactivity and the ability to create your own avatar. Oh, and there's only one single crop to cultivate: weed, obviously.
Salk Institute scientists have found preliminary evidence that tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) and other compounds found in marijuana can promote the cellular removal of amyloid beta, a toxic protein associated with Alzheimer's disease.
AT FIRST GLANCE the former professional cyclists Floyd Landis and David Zabriskie-both kicked out of the game after confessing to using performance-enhancing drugs-seem like imperfect (at best) advocates for the benefits of marijuana. Yet today they're announcing their new business: topical creams laced with the active ingredients of weed, aimed at athletes. The pair are selling a variety of marijuana-infused products to Colorado dispensaries under the Floyd's of Leadville brand.
You’re riding in a driverless car with a loved one. It’s cruising down a one-way, single-lane road with a barricade to the left and a wall to the right.
Just a few feet ahead, three pedestrians are hurrying across a crosswalk even though it’s flashing a red signal. The driverless vehicle’s wheels are faster than the pedestrians’ feet, and a collision is inevitable.
What should happen next? Should the vehicle know to swerve into a wall and sacrifice its passengers to avoid the pedestrians, or should it protect its passengers at all costs?
Nike on Tuesday unveiled a speed system for its track and field athletes who will compete at August's Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro.
The first is adhesive tape with silicon-based spikes called AeroBlades that runners will be instructed to wear on various parts of their bodies, depending on event, to help cut wind resistance or aerodynamic drag. The distance between the AeroBlades is also different, depending on what part of the body they are placed.
Here comes the pod plane. It’s yet another revolutionary aircraft design, this one created by Switzerland's Federal Polytechnic Institute, that aims to transform the way people and cargo travel.
Clip-Air is composed of two elements.
There’s the flying component, including airframe, cockpit and engines.
Then there’s the capsules, a number of detachable pods that can act as cabin or cargo hold, depending on the chosen configuration.
The airframe is based on a flying-wing concept, reminiscent of a stealth bomber. Some may even find some similarities to the X-48, an experimental pilotless aircraft developed for NASA a decade ago.
