If you're a diehard tree hugger I suggest you look elsewhere for your daily dose of dick this morning, but if you hug trees like Erik Roner hugs trees then read on! Today's ode to winter goes out to the "colorado", a stick little trick I first learned about on Nitro Circus, where a few of those individuals were so inclined to scale pine trees up to the tippy-top tufts until the maximum load bearing threshold was reached, surpassed, and subsequently snapped. Mind you, the "colorado" is best performed on slopes of fresh, deep powder, for what I hope would be understood for wholly obvious reasons, a/k/a nature's airbag. While this here may not be the deepest nor freshest powder to be found, Roner is wrapped in only the finest manmade bubble devices available for total fat-fucked personal protection.
