Posted by Tanner Rosenthal

To Panda Chief TanSnowMan, his 8th grade season was a breakthrough year on skis. There were a few older skiers who took him under their wing, helping make it one of his best seasons to date. And a few weeks ago, the Panda Chief spent the day skiing with two of his idols from that season...

Join TanSnowMan as he tags along with TJ Budge and Andy Millward in the side country of Pebble Creek Ski Area...

Although his methods might be unorthodox, and his theories ambiguous, TanSnowMan has a certain depth of character, and zeal for honor that only a trained master might exhibit...

Go behind the scenes, to learn the story of how Josh Jeffreys, Bo Ferro, and Jordon Beesley came to meet their 'sensei' at The Panda Dojo...

Note: Yes, we know that Pandas are from China and sensei is a Japanese concept. This is satire.

06-02-17 | TEMPLE

Posted by Tanner Rosenthal

"To me The mountain is a place to commune... with friends and family… with nature... And most importantly with oneself. The mountain provides a pattern for living in tune with spirit. A template for working constructively through our fears. A release from the tensions of daily life. And a sanctuary for connecting our hearts and minds. To me the mountain is more than simply snow, dirt, and rock. To me the mountain is a temple."

- Panda Chief TanSnowMan

"You know, even though I’ve skied half way around the world, I’ve somehow managed to ski the same chairlift for most of my life. It’s not that I don’t like other chairlifts. And it’s not that I don’t like hiking. It’s just that this is home. It’s where my heart lives. And no matter how hard I try to leave, my heart keeps coming back. The Skyline Chairlift will forever hold its place in my heart.

And now I have the honor of giving that gift to my son…."

Part I of the 2016 Panda Poles Season Highlight Reel, this is "Shred The Rock"

Filmed entirely on GoPro Hero 4 and iPhone 6.

The Panda spirit is a gentle soul. Although they could so easily shred flesh, they choose to mostly shred bamboo. However, such as with the balance of black and white, there are moments when the Panda spirit is placid, and yet there are times when the Panda fire comes alive! It is in these moments that the Panda spirit chooses to shred that of snow and rock...

For Part II of the 2016 Panda Poles Season Highlight Reel, join the Panda Chief as he relives his favorite helmet cam shots from last season at Pebble Creek Ski Area...

"What I probably love most about using my helmet cam, is that it doesn’t really get in the way of the flow. I love being able to capture the candid, unexpected moments following my friends around the mountain… It’s guaranteed to be a rodeo everytime!" -TanSnowMan

And for our grand finale, tag along with the Panda Tribe for part III of the 2016 Panda Poles Season Highlight Reel! Because it's not the size of the mountain that matters, it's how it feels when you're going down...

Panda Poles have always been crafted with a deep sense of playfulness and authenticity. It’s not that they are just eclectic and rootsy. It’s that every person who has ever had a hand in crafting them is a passionate, die-hard skier. Their connection to skiing has been entwined into this brand at its deepest level, and our love for the mountains, air, water, animals, plants, and people is present in every pair of wands that goes out our door. We love life on planet Earth, and we celebrate skiing To it’s core…

And that, my friends, is just another reason that Panda Poles are more than just ski poles. Panda Poles are magic ski wands...

Every year since we’ve been in business, Panda Chief TanSnowMan has had to work other jobs just to get through the summer and pay the bills. But this year we lined things up so he is able to spend his summer prepping poles in the Dojo.

In the quiet hills of SE Idaho, there exists a boisterous world of bike trails, sage brush, and junipers, known only by a few brave souls. And when the snows eventually recede, the trails come alive with billows of dust, and echoes of laughter and stoke. Because if there’s no snow, at least there’s dirt...

At Panda Poles, we may be a bunch of goofballs, but we take our ecological impact quite seriously. Although we currently do quarterly visits to the recycling center, we once spent an entire year keeping our full waste-stream on premises. After 12 months, we had only created 100 lbs. of 'garbage' and 150 lbs. of recycling! (Note: this does not include the hundreds of lbs. of compostable bamboo scrap we generated) We did this project as an awareness exercise for ourselves--to see what kind of waste we create and where it ends up--and to cultivate more discussion and awareness around waste and waste-steams, for all manufacturers and consumers. How waste aware are you?

The smell of sawdust wafts through the room, as the whine of an electric drill stirs the silence.

Peaceful intentions in motion like steady waves upon the ocean. With focus and attention, distracted only by perfection, two hands doth work as one.

Seeding dreams of magic and wonder into the hands of those who ski, and those who see; that the cost of making goods in China, is more than just money. The cost of making all goods in China is a potentially destructive luxury.

With corporation profit inflation, worker wage stagnation, and dismal working conditions overseas; we are but only playing a real life game of Monopoly.

The cost of only making goods in China is a decaying middle class economy. The cost is a loss of spirit; that which no one can see…

We were there, with the snow flying and laughter echoing through the canyons and hills. Another ski season come and gone, and as the snows recede into a memory, we reflect on the previous months, and remind ourselves of the excitement which was once so strongly seated in our souls. But for now, we must do our best to hold that stoke in our hearts, and be grateful for the joy which we shared only what seems just moments ago… Here’s to what was another amazing season on the snow...
