Other then Star Wars, content has been dry over the last couple of weeks. I’m hopin to see some Christmas vids come out soon (Hanukah vid could be dank to).

BR dropped some clips from some contest held by some company.

In Finess Madlib sais “If we sat there and thought about it ya’ll would really be in trouble“. J nilla and Gustav sat there and thought about it. Interpretation has arrived from outer space. Support the brothas who have given us the most consistently great content over the years.  #jnilla&gustav4natgeo.

Flat Stanley aka Oscar Seagram wrote an in depth review of Eat the Guts. A+ paper.

Shrimp and early season bush footy mixed by Krombopulous pulp head.

Congrats Party boy Roy for getting on V :). Here he is seen skiing/dancing in a dream state.  Can’t wait to see the shots from A4’s trip to canada.

ZS years end awards coming soon. There will be joy, there will be tears.

“Trying to decide on a spot to go to but ending up just going to Tim Hortons or Dunks. Hopefully it’s Dunks which means were most likely near Boston which means we can just cut our losses and head back to Hackel’s parents’ place and play 2k in the basement while Mr. Hackel cooks us up some real gourmet shit.” Slivush interviewed HG about Eat the Guts and the #industry. There was no Vey in the interview so here’s a recent facebook status.

I uploaded Jay’s part from Roasted to youtube. Make a Tube account if you don’t have one.

“It’s been pretty fun to stop eating meat and to see how many cool veggies there are”  Powder put a LSM feature on their site from a recent magazine edition.

Quote of the week: “I think I’m trynna be on more of an angsty snowboarder tip”- Skiz

spot beef (tb)

7 years ago all seemed to be well. Level 1 was still making decent movies and 4bi9 had yet to become Good Company / a #fullservicemediaoutlet that films bourbon commercials (would make more sense if it was a commercial for 40’s). Beneath the surface of a great era of skiing there appeared to be some serious east/west side conflict closely comparable to Biggie and Pac’s beef.  In 2011 Ahmet was filming with level 1 for his “After Dark” seg and Tim McChesney was filming with 4bi9 for “Begging for Change“. During February of that year 4bi9 randomly put out a video (below) of Tim doing a 4 on to a ledge to promote their new movie. Later that year “After Dark” came out and Ahmet has a shot of the same exact 4 on to the same exact ledge in his part. Judging by the song in the 4bi9 vid it seems like east side did it first… but how did they know Ahmet got that shot? How far back does the beef go and does it continue to this day? What we do know is that 4bi9 used to be dope and now they’re trynna sell us old animal t-shirts?

PSA: One of 4bi9’s best vids is still missing.

Eat the Guts drops Tommorow :))

wack friday

What I’m thankful for in skiing was most accurately depicted by Harrington Brother Z the other day, but aside from our shared appreciations, I’m thankful for everything that gets put on this website.  It’s been a slow week for new content video wise, hopefully Eat the Nuts and Interpretation will be online soon.

I once used a fufu purple video player to upload videos to ZS, which I have decided to abandon. Videos such as “A Park City Christmas, the first Zootspace original” and the excerpts previously missing from vimeo, one and two, are now playing on a more accessible platform.

Subscribe to the goat. Hackel’s been uploading a bunch of clips  to his youtube channel.

A short early season sugarbush montage featuring Jim, Will Mac, some snowboarding and Insane Gilbane (I think). Shout out to who ever did the super-fed I think that might’ve been Gilbane to.

gram update: Freddie Grann spray paints features on snowCrack Jack street footy.

Fashion Report: Two companies that have given you product in the name of black friday, but haven’t gentrified there prices because of wack friday. Arsenic Goth collection. Dan’s having a pop-up in SLC tommorow night DM him for more details. The new Kallt Gear drop. New ZS T shirts coming soon.

Quote of the week: “my mom thinks I’m Zootspace”- anonymous.

Leeb has been making a bunch of music

People of all ages and sizes travel from around the world to visit the Bonezone, a place created by The General’s older brother. The Brighton parking lot was full today and there aren’t even any lifts running yet. Skiz aka Oliver Hobstackle aka the CEO of this website made a new video from the bone zone featuring multiple Park City all stars and Cal goes DUMB hard.

The Mags and Sig Tviet combo never gets old. Early season montage in the foreign land featuring a Vishnu track from the same people who gave us the The Kimbo sessions theme song (thank you Kimbo) and the all time classic, “Quit my Job”.

3 years ago Ian Compton gave us The weak Vey and Gibson edition, yesterday he gave us The weak Dayton and Hackel edition.

In the past 5 years, a lot of great content has been buried in the Level 1 movies mixed with horrible editing and pow segments you don’t want to watch. Regardless, skiers like Mike Hornbeck and LSM have had multiple great segments, that may or may not be worth your $10 dollars on iTunes. Level 1 has a lot of slo-mo extras from “Less” on there youtube account, I compiled them together into 1 OD video.

30 days till Star Wars

Snow mounds are slowly making their way onto the ZS favorite feature list among the likes of picnic tables and benches. The mound at solidude deemed “the bump” has been providing much fun before the infamous bull wheels start spinning at Park City. This mega bump clip is the god of all bump clips.

Hugo Burvall vs. Emil Granbom game of slivush.

The Midwestern ski scene is made up of little to nothing…which sucks because the Midwest holds a bunch of rope tows and great street spots. The same kid who saw Henrik as a ghost in the Education of Style has a clip on his Vimeo of Someone (Mathew Kaye) holding it down in the Midwest.

Phil and Henrik’s favorite skier, graveyard uncle, and poop slide g.o.a.t, Zam.

The Keeshlife street montage is out, more accurately named Anttu’s vid. More Keesh drops tommorow.

Gram update: Big air to salt box , Two from The bunch, lots of snow in burlington

The many levels and aspects of the nugget aka the ski slide (opinionated and controversial)

Examples of dank alt nuggets.

high nugget

level nugget

deep nugget

The nugget and 50-50 have peacefully coexisted for as long as Will Wesson and Andy Parry have made videos together. However, the nugget has a tendency off veering off track from its original purpose to create something that is not very visually appealing. If you’re an average American, (not Burrito Boi or a foreigner) the nugget should only be attempted in dire circumstances (see middle picture). If an obstacle simply can’t be 50-50’d, then maybe, just maybe it’s nugget time. Features such as tubes, tables, boxes, barriers, and bars all deserve 2 feet, and when you do find something that requires the nugget make sure to keep it in the level range, with the least amount of splicing possible. The 50-50 on a standard down hand rail has debatably never been done, (similar to the fully behind the binding tail press), but once someone true style 50-50’s a handrail, the nuggets place in America may permanently reside to strictly creeper rails. As much as we do know about the nugget there are many things still unclear. Why do foreigners look so much better doing it? Did some one nugget a dfd before T-Hall’s #highnugget throwback in Triumph?

Mango and Skiz fishing on the way to Brighton

For all those out there with new uncomfortable boots. I’m bout to throw my liners in the oven.

Ya’ll have allready seen Roasted the movie by Skiz. Slak’s shot should’ve been the ender.

Round 2 of slivush between two very technical Swedish yangstas drops tommorow.

“Skiing is just so inspirational, so many good buddies across the globe!” Couldn’t have said it better then A4, who just got interviewed by Slivush. Hopefully he doesn’t leave to Washington :(

Also, Newschoolers interviewed a recent big dog turned zoot dog.

These Zermatt kids are reaching new heights.

I uploaded a Jon brogan excerpt to Vimeo. There’s snow in Utah, and live content is sometimes on the ZS gram.

Gram update: Kid good vibe grambreakfast burrito, and yes, Joona Kangas should make another J’s bench jibbajabba

Fashion report: Will Berman mitten coThis gear for the cold will come right when you need it, and you can give back your old gear to Patagonia.

According to Brady Perron, there are around 250 ways to cork 5 and all of them look good usually. Spinny has most likely done them all at this point. Everyone’s favorite Keystone combo skis Copper.

Interpretation is premiering in Stockholm this Friday.

The modern day king of switch landings and 1st http://www.zoot.space visitor compiled his shots from this past season.

“At this moment I don’t have words of deep insight to offer the readers”. Slvsh (pronounced slivush) talked to Hackle about Eat the guts, the Olympics and original content. There is good insight throughout.

Henrik doing some very #tecc lip 2’s. Also, he just started a new company.

Tom Walisch’s new video was indeed not weak as hell.

Jim’s part from COTG remixed and remastered. Brothers on the Slide is on the internet again.

Shout out to No Pulp sticker co.
