Driving out of Los Angeles is an experience. There are really two routes east - take the main highways south of the San Gabriel mountains or take Newhall Pass, that separates the San Gabriels from the Santa Susana Mountains, and take the route north of the mountains. The former guarantees bumper-to-bumper traffic for 2 hours while the latter adds an 50 miles to the route but empty roads. We take the high-road. @atypicalcontent Sunset over the Prado in Taos, New Mexico. After a week of storms where over 40” fell, the sky cleared and gave us a show. We made our way to the mountain and checked in with ski patrol for the required backcountry passes. The mountain has a couple of high speed chairs and a nice gondola that takes 15 minutes to the top. Tom was leading the way and made the call to take some of the lower chairs, this netted us first tracks on most of the aspects we hit. The morning went by in a flash of powder. Deep and steep pitches, tight trees, and endless possibilities everywhere. There is so much sidecountry that earning our turns was unnecessary. Lap after lap we found first or second tracks on most everything. Kiroro was great. Kiroro is one of the special places in a special place. It is a backcountry focused area with lift access, tons of snow, a consistent fall line, and endless features to ride. With time being precious, our Aussie host, Liam, hooked us up with a 22 year old "volunteer" from the States to take us around the mountain. Tomahawk Tom had been riding Kiroro everyday for the past two months and knew the ins and outs. @ridealldamnday A story about a Yuki Ona is being written. @hopihillsfarm My morning started unlike any other. Snorting, scratching, clapping, and weezing kept on popping into my sleep and I could not understand why. Oh, that's right, I'm sleeping in a barn... someone hit the snooze button on the goats.

A Trip to the Lencois Maranhenses

For three weeks in late 2018, AtypicalContent travelled throughout northeast Brazil. We visited, rode, and swam in Fortaleza, Icaraizinho, Jericoacoara, Atins, the Lencois Maranhenses, and São Luis. Below are some of our pictures and video.

Icaraizinho

Icarai is a small, quiet, fishing village west of Fortaleza. What it lacks in size it makes up with consistent trade winds and warm waters.

Jericoacoara

Jeri is a global windsurfing and kiteboarding mecca.

Atins

Located in the Preguica River’s estuary, Atins provides great access to the Lencois Maranhenses. It also has great kiteboarding.

Lencois Maranhenses

The Lencois Maranhenses covers 155,000 hectares, 600 square miles, in northeast Brazil. It’s completely made of white sand and clear blue water and its beauty is difficult to describe.
