While many look at the months following the holidaze and before the thaw as a dreary purgatory that must be suffered through, TheGoodLife! looks at it as our favorite time of year! Cause, that’s right, we’re headed on the Mile High Tour! For as long as we can remember we’ve been assembling a merry band of creative homies to head to the mountains for an adventure of a lifetime, and each year TheGoodLife! Mile High Tour has delivered! This year was no exception. Beginning with the “Pray For Snow” show in Denver, through the mountains and finally on to the X Games in Aspen there were great times with great friends at ever turn. Thanks to our friends and partners at Fice Gallery, 10 Barrel Brewing, Protect Our Winters, Dope Roots and Burton Snowboards for coming along for the ride. Check out who all we ran into in a massive film photo gallery by Craig Wetherby after the jump. #SnowGods represent!
Last week the Snow Gods trekked from NYC to Denver to commence our annual Mile High Tour, a time honored tradition of bringing ample pow and good times to our Rocky Mountain fam. This year we began the tour a bit differently by gathering an assortment of talented TheGoodLife! artists to create “Pray For Snow,” a group photography exhibit featuring the work of Jimmy Chin, Cole Barash, Laura Austin, Meg Haywood Sullivan, Craig Wetherby and Dean Blotto Gray. Hosted by our friends at Fice Gallery’s rad new Denver outpost and made possible by support from 10 Barrel Brewing, all proceeds from sales at “Pray For Snow,” will be committed to Protect Our Winters. Thanks to everyone that came to the show including Donna Carpenter, Chris Steinkamp, Barbara Weber, Torrey Udall, Lukas Haynes, and Auden Schendler of POW, photographers Dean Blotto Gray, Laura Austin, and Craig Wetherby, Jens Heig of Snowboard Magazine, Burton pro rider Zak Hale, DJ Rhetorik and many more. From the show we took it next store to 10 Barrel Brewing’s spanking new Denver brewpub where KNGZMEN TJ and JesseTre Mizell rocked the party until the early morning hours. Check out some pics after the jump and stay tuned for the full Mile High Tour recap coming soon!
To celebrate the life of hip hop legend Jam Master Jay on what would have been his 52nd birthday, his son TJ Mizell teamed up with Canadian trailblazer Skratch Bastid for this one take tribute to the late grand master. Bump it loud!! RIP JMJ. Shot and edited by Leighton Pope for DopeRoots.
We’ve been fortunate to watch the rise of Joao Salomao aka “PIXOTE” from an extremely close proximity. A lifetime member of TheGoodLife! Familia, PIXOTE breathed new life into NYC’s street art scene by blending his distinctive Brasilian style into the busy canvas of New York City. Having turned his attention to painting on actual canvas, PIXOTE is debuting a solo exhibition entitled “State of Awareness” at Soho House tomorrow night! We’re proud of you irmão! “State of Awareness” runs from Friday, December 16th to Saturday, December 17th at Soho House, Ludlow House 139 Ludlow Street in New York. Above is his work bearing the title of the exhibit, hit the jump to see more pieces.
