30′s Thursday: The Official Snow Basin (Bathroom) Review

By • Jan 21st, 2010 • Category: Features, Latest

Last week, the downstairs bathroom in the base lodge at Snow Basin, UT became second nicest place I’ve ever taken a crap.  It’s typically never fun to stop and have the runs when your out taking them – but I’d argue that the gold-plated toilet bowl plumbing, solid floor-to-ceiling-cherry-wood bathroom stall doors and the decorative […]

By • Nov 12th, 2009 • Category: Features, Latest

Shaun White will make the double-cork a TV household name this winter on NBC, ESPN and beyond.  Make no mistake that his command over these tricks and determination to bring them into the competitive arena is truly impressive.  If this were NASCAR, Shaun basically just built a car that’s twice as fast, and the rest […]
