codytownsend This is how I'll always remember @american_dave, things getting blurry as I left my comfort zone, trying with all my might to keep up with the legend known as American Dave. I'll never forget my first night in Chamonix. I was petrified by simply walking through town and looking up at the towering peaks surrounding the valley. By myself I felt very small and alone as the people, mountains and culture seemed so foreign to me, but through the word of a distant friend, I was told to text some guy named American Dave. That night, Dave welcomed me into his home to celebrate his birthday and within the hour he made me feel like an old friend. Since then, I didn't get to ride bikes or ski with him that often, but no matter what the apparatus we we're on, I always struggled to keep up, was always pushed out of my comfort zone and always ended the day with smiles and that same feeling of welcoming that I felt on the first lonely night in Chamonix. His passing hurts us all, makes us question our relationship with the mountains and most of all just bums is out that we don't get to hang out with an athlete better than most professional athletes, a person so energetic and positive that your day was better simply because you went out with him and a soul that devoted life to joy. May you ski the powdery steeps in the next life Dave. Thanks for being a friend. You will be missed. 5d

codytownsend Well I'm back home. Which means no more ice moustaches that extend beyond my nose nor tours out of the powder engulfed backcountry in Japan. #freeskidreamtrip 1w

codytownsend Score: 1-1. @salomonfreeski TV vs. @nimbusindpndnt. After a brutal snowball shellacking handed down on the FSTV crew in the morning, it was time for a little cold revenge in the afternoon. #filmwars #sprayskiers #spraysnowboarderstoo 1w

codytownsend I see why Zen Buddhism is so grounded in Japan. It's pretty much the most quiet, peaceful place on the planet. @mikedski touring out on the #freeskidreamtrip 2w

codytownsend Getting up to get down. The great thing about pow is it gives you the freedom to not give a fuck if the landing is flat, you land on your head or you want to try something stupid. It's the ultimate big kid toy. #freeskidreamtrip going damn well with @mikedski @kajzackrisson @jefftheory3 @anthonybonello @scottmarkewitz and @nik_ohne_c 3w

codytownsend Ah, so this is why everyone is over in Japan right now. I didn't believe all their instas so had to check it out for myself. Stoked the lucky winner of the #freeskidreamtrip chose me to come to Japan! @salomonfreeski @mikedski @kajzackrisson @jefftheory3 @anthonybonello #sparkleboots 3w

codytownsend 6 years ago I never could've predicted how I'd switch from skinny giant 202cm big mountain charging skis to the twin rockered super playful skis I prefer today. The @salomonfreeski Rocker2 has become my everyday go to ski for everything from AK to playful days at the resort. This ski has single handedly changed the way I see a mountain and I'm having more fun because of them...so much fun in fact that sometimes I can't tell whether I'm floating or flying. #odetotherocker2 1mon
  •   codytownsend @rickardwrangel on the recommended line. That ski likes a more traditional mount point. 1mon
  •   todd_kehoe @codytownsend - I'll admit I still love charging the hill on your 184 4w
  •   todd_kehoe @codytownsend - I'll admit, I still have your 194 cm El Dictator ski as my daily driver. I may use others on deep pow days, but it is a charger that sends it & stomps when conditions are variable. 4w
  •   kajzackrisson Fuck Yeah @todd_kehoe you rock 4w
  •   safranecko @codytownsend man what do you think about rocker 2 100?? I bought pair of those bitches this year and i feel pretty crazy about them ;) what about you? 4w
  •   todd_kehoe @kajzackrisson @codytownsend - I will admit on pow days I love my 196 cm Renegade built by @eric_hjorleifson, but when in doubt & need camber doing crazy & steep lines in granite canyon off JHMR in variable conditions I like the El Dictator. I was smart to by another set this summer undrilled for cheap & hoard a back up set since they are 86ed. 4w

codytownsend 2:30 pm in Alaska in December. The sun never quite rises above the ridgeline at @resortalyeska this time of year but that just means the snow stays damn fine for days on end. Fun first day back in AK. 1mon

codytownsend The skiing up high @squawalpine has been damn fun. Chalky, powdery and cold snow. Yesterday @scottgaffski and I got into the pocket for some of the first little lines of the year. So good to be back on the shred sticks. 2mon
