Rusty team rider Shaun Belmore headed to Mt. Buller in victoria Australia on the weekend to celebrate the opening of the southern hemisphere season.
A great surprise was that there was snow everywhere. usually this weekend you are lucky to see a dusting maybe 1 lift open. Best opening ive seen yet. small rail park and 4 lifts turning.
Great weekend on and off slopes. The pub there always turns it on for this weekend.
check out a couple of photos.

Snow Legend Romain De Marchi hits the coastal mountain in Canada.
Sometimes, average conditions can turn into really good session.
After a trip in Japan with his yes crew Romain gives us a little taste of what backcountry riding is about: finding the spot, building kickers, waiting for the sun to come out, throwing big jumps and what about finishing the session in pillows.
