The 7 Stages Of Blank | Salomon TV


– [Telephone Recording]
Frequency stuff, confirmed. – [Man In Black Hat] I have
zero button, I say RT SCSS. – [Man In Red Jacket] Yeah you do. – [Man In Black Hat] No,
it’s on DOA what, DO? – No, dude it’s in the program. You go menu. – You guys copy, you guys copy? – [Blair] No. (radios beeping) – [Narrator] The date is June
9th, 2019, session seven. – [Man In Red Jacket] That’s it, that’s the button you want. – Man, I have no clue what
you guys are talking about. – [Narrator] So guys,
back to where we left off. – [Blair] You guys are great explorers. – 69 kilohertz. – [Narrator] Sure, you’ve been
subscribing to this insanity all of your lives. – Hey, Blair, do you read me? – [Blair] Yeah! – [Narrator] But I’ve
given that some thought. (upbeat country music) I designed this model to
postulate a progression of your emotional stages
during a ski season. In other words, the seven stages are simply a model created to
explain your guys’ obsession. ♪ Touch down in Dallas ♪ ♪ I gotta make a connection ♪ ♪ Left my lover in the magazine store ♪ ♪ Big Texas blonde ♪ ♪ Smilin’ at the counter ♪ ♪ Just a kinda thing I’m lookin’ for ♪ ♪ When I’m flying high with no ID ♪ – [Alexi] You could run
through it, like literally. – [Cameraman] Three, two, one, drop it! (man screaming) – Actually, it’s pretty
deep out here, you know? ♪ I got a 7:00 a.m. flight
leavin’ outta New Orleans ♪ ♪ Barely got to bed
from the night before ♪ ♪ Me and my baby all night
long on Frenchman Street ♪ ♪ We grabbed the bags,
headed out the door ♪ ♪ And I’m flyin’ high with no ID ♪ ♪ And I’m flyin’ high with no ID ♪ ♪ Well, I’m flyin’ high with no ID ♪ ♪ How does somethin’ like

like this happen to me ♪ ♪ I got an all day sucker
from the pharmacy ♪ ♪ And I’m flyin’ high ♪ – [Narrator] It is important to interpret these stages loosely, not everyone experiences
them in prescribed order. Maybe it’s a feeling of
excitement, a nervous expectation of the inevitable. In the first stage, I feel
you believe the diagnosis is somehow mistaken and you lose yourself to an alternate reality. (upbeat music) (man laughing) – Oh buddy! Now that right there is
the deepest powder skiing of my life. (upbeat electronic music) Got about 30 inches out here and I think today’s gonna be mediocre. Alexi and Daiek thought
it was deep in Lake Tahoe. Well, ya gotta come to
Mount Baker then, bud. (upbeat electronic music) First time in the Baker
Roadgap, pretty nervous but should be fun. (upbeat electronic music) (man whooping) (upbeat electronic music) (man shouting) (upbeat electronic music) Hey Canyon, thanks for pickin’ us up. I don’t think I’ve ever
seen it snow so much in a 24 hour period. Probably the four deepest
strands I’ve ever had in my whole life, that was crazy. – Yeah buddy. Good day, huh? (man whooping) – [Alexi] Yeah baby! This is insane! (upbeat electronic music) (man whooping) (upbeat electronic music) – That was kinda like
end of what I would call, like, my main ski career was like 36 but I felt like I was still
pretty on it back then. I definitely do not feel
even close to that now. – You once were. – What do you mean once were? Have some respect for your elders. (upbeat music) – [Narrator] And now,
ladies and gentlemen. (dramatic fanfare music) (upbeat electronic music) (man whooping) (upbeat electronic music) (men whooping) (upbeat electronic music) (man whooping) – [Cameraman] Five, four, three, two, one. Oh jeez. (upbeat electronic music) Oh what a frickin’ awesome. (men whooping) (upbeat electronic music) – Been 13 years since I was
back here in the Callaghan. The last time was for the K2 Back 9, back country freestyle event, I guess. It’s such a beautiful place. It’s such a shame that I
haven’t been back here since. But it’s really cool to be here and to be skiin’ with these guys who are all kinda in
the half my age range. Especially, like, Sam. Like he just sees things
that I don’t even see. Like, I’m like, there’s no landing, where you gonna land? He’s like, oh, I’m gonna
take off from there and I’m gonna land over there, and I’m like, really? (upbeat electronic music) – Not every day you get
to ski with the godfather. You gotta take it when
you can get it, you know? Gettin’ old, he doesn’t
get up that much anymore. – [Mike] Sam Kurch. – What up, Mike? – [Mike] Let’s go skiing! See ya boys! (upbeat electronic music) (men whooping) (upbeat electronic music) – This is the tough part, the Star Cape. Right, once you drop
in, you’re just skiin’. It’s another day. Fun line, lots of fun, lots of airs. Another day in the free ride club. Gimme a couple deep breaths
right down to the belly. That breathin’s gonna
keep ya goin’, right? All the way to the bottom. You be you. Ski like you. You got a good creative line, right? Make it yours. Judges are ready for Jackson. Yeah buddy, get it, okay? Have fun. Three, two, one. (upbeat electronic music) – When Stan’s better he’s
gonna come ski with us. – Really? – Yeah, we got some,
like, ski shots maybe. That’d be sick. (upbeat electronic music) Definitely not as crazy as
you kids, that’s for sure. (upbeat electronic music) Oh, it was a little quicker than that. Yeah! (upbeat electronic music) Let’s see that buddy, that’s sick. (upbeat electronic music) – [Cameraman] Come one,
come on dog, you got this. – [Radio] Five, four,
three, two, one, drop! (radio beeps) (upbeat electronic music) – [Cameraman] Okay, you got this. (upbeat electronic music) (man groaning) (radio babbling) Yeah, yeah, shut it. Come on! (upbeat electronic music) Oh, come on! Five, four, three, two, one, drop. (upbeat electronic music) (man whooping) (upbeat rock music) – Nasty out. Raining. Snaining. Pretty ugly right now. It’s just Tahoe in general. Sometimes it rains. Sometimes it snows. So when it snows you gotta
get it while it’s good. But, it’s supposed to change over to snow later this afternoon. We’ll see. – [Announcer] Winter storm warnings across the northern
Rockies and in the Sierras, tension turns to the atmosphere of river. This plume of moisture headed straight into northern and central California. The Sierras could pick up
another six to 10 feet of snow throughout this week. – [Stan] People always kinda bag on Tahoe but we get this every couple years. I wish it snowed like this every winter but I’ll take it when I can get it. – This is insane. (upbeat electronic music) (Alexi whooping) (upbeat electronic music) (man whooping) – Tahoe baby, back yard, fiery. (upbeat electronic music) Oh dude, yeah!
(man whooping) (upbeat electronic music) (man whooping) (upbeat electronic music) – It’s kinda hard for me
to get a true perspective ’cause I know the landing
is tucked in behind it. – It didn’t look like you
were gonna come up way short but it looked like it was questionable whether you were gonna make it over. – [Cameraman] Drop! (upbeat electronic music) (man whooping) – My heart was racin’ just watchin’. Can’t wait to give that guy a hug. – It was a mean backslap
but I’m gonna count it as, not a stomp, but a win. We’ll just call it a win, how ’bout that. – It says negative one. It’s pretty uncommon here in Tahoe. – Put that in Celsius, D. – In Celsius? I think that’s like negative 15. – Siri, what’s negative
one Fahrenheit in Celsius? – That was a full on guess. – Minus, yeah, minus 18. – Yes! – [Cameraman] So you got the
good weather report from Daiek? – You get a call at like 9:00
a.m., book a flight at 11, get on a plane at seven,
you’re here at midnight and the next day, look
at what you’re skiing. Who’s a lucky boy? (upbeat electronic music) – [Cameraman] Five, four,
three, two, one, droppin’. (upbeat electronic music) – [Jordy] Yeah boys. (upbeat electronic music) – [Alexi] Five, four,
three, two, one, droppin’. Yeah boys. (upbeat electronic music) – [Josh] Three, two, one, drop. Come on, homie, let’s get this. (upbeat electronic music) (man whooping) (upbeat electronic music) (man whooping) (upbeat electronic music) (alarm ringing) (bouncy upbeat music) – We just left Italy and
we’re goin’ back into France. Or, we’re still in Italy, are we, Tanner? – No, we are just on the border, yeah. But we start in France. We traveled by the tunnel to
Italy, go up by the gondola. Now traverse all the ridge here to there and up there we will be in France again and ski down, all the way
down to France to Chamonix. (bouncy music) (upbeat electronic music) – [Alexi] All right,
three, two, one, hell yeah! (upbeat electronic music) – [Jules] Three, two, one, dropping. (upbeat electronic music) – [Cameraman] Gonna hike up there. Up the flank, on the back side. Go up again and go down again and then go up again. You got the grid meteor right
there, Mont Blanc right there. – Actually, I’m very nervous. Never really done big rappels and stuff but actually pretty excited, somehow. (upbeat electronic music) Yes, (mumbling). (upbeat electronic music) Sheer ice under here. Ow! Oh, that could’ve (bleeps)
broke my hand right there. (upbeat electronic music) – Maybe we can find some pow, now? A little bit. (men whooping) (upbeat electronic music) (speaking in French) – [Cameraman] Oh yeah. (upbeat electronic music) – [Announcer] Next stop. (bells dinging) – [Narrator] And finally as
we reflect on previous stages in the model, we begin to understand the depths of your obsession. But to get a full sense of satisfaction, you guys must look to
your own surroundings. (upbeat country music) – [Alexi] All right, dropping in 10. Come on dog, we got this, doggy. – [Stan] Okay, ready? – [Alexi] Okay, five seconds. All right boys, droppin’ in 10. – Just a little warm up run, you know. Something mellow-ish. (upbeat country music) (man whooping) (upbeat country music) (upbeat electronic music) – [Cameraman] Five, four,
three, two, one, here goes. (upbeat electronic music) (men laughing) Oh, year two at the Bralorne. (upbeat electronic music) – [Stan] Oh yeah boys. Just another beauty day in the mountains. Come in. – [Man On Radio] Okay we got
Stan in, three, two, one. (upbeat electronic music) – [Stan] Oh my god! (upbeat electronic music) (Stan whooping) (upbeat electronic music) (man whooping) (upbeat electronic music) – [Cameraman] All right boys. Here goes nothin’. (upbeat electronic music) (men cheering) – [Cameraman] Oh my god! (men whooping) (upbeat electronic music) (man groaning) – [Stan] Oh, that was a crusher. (man grunts) What did you just say? – Farfarnugle. – Farfanugle, eh, farfanugle. (upbeat music) That’s a wrap. (upbeat jazzy music) – [Cameraman] Oh yeah,
oh, that’s a beauty. Oh yeah, oh yeah. Oh yeah, oh yeah. (man whooping) – Droppin’ in 10. Come on dog, you got this doggy. (upbeat electronic music) Almost had ‘er. So you win some, sometimes you lose some. (upbeat electronic music) Can’t win ’em all. (upbeat jazzy music) How does a tree get on the internet? He logs on. (upbeat jazzy music)
