Happy Thanks’Jibbing everyone! “What the hell is Thanks’Jibbing?”, you’re probably asking yourself. Simple. It’s what you should be doing during the early season because there are two ways you can spend Thanksgiving. The first is doing a bit of light jibbing around your local mountain or your backyard hill before eating an outrageous amount of food, and the other is sitting around with some fresh metal hardware holding your extremities together because you were trying to get rad in the backcountry when there’s nothing but dust on rocks. One of these Thanksgivings is fun and the other involves you rationalizing a growing companionship with pain pills. I’ve done both. Pick the former.
Bishop is seeking athlete ambassadors to test and develop the next generation of downhill telemark bindings.
Dubbed the #Badassadors, both traditional and freestyle telemark skiers are invited to apply and join our team of sponsored athletes to help promote our brand and advance the incredible sport of telemark skiing.
Simply put, the Bishop 2.0 is built for “big mountain badassery”. Unlike any other telemark bindings, the 2.0 is engineered using bomber titanium, aluminum and stainless steel for ultimate stability and lateral control. Our bindings are especially ideal for newschoolers pushing the boundaries of telemark in the freestyle realm.
Ambassadors should be similarly badass when it comes to their influence, stoke and contribution to the free-heel way of life. (3) winners will be selected on Oct. 20th -- aka the first official week of ski season here in Colorado -- based on a criteria of reach, authenticity, voice and fit.
