You tell us. What are Barrie's skiers and snowboarders listening to?

You tell us. What are Barrie’s skiers and snowboarders listening to?

Did yesterday’s hint of snow get everyone on Barrie excited for ski and snowboard season? Me too.

With the season on the horizon, I’ve made it my goal to listen to more music while I snowboard. Now that’s I’ve got Apple Protect, I can feel free to wreck my iPhone on the hill.

If you’re not listening to Songza yet, you should. Until iTunes Radio or Spotify become a viable Canadian option, this is my go-to for set-it-and-forget-it music.

Here are my picks for the upcoming ski and snowboard season:

In The Halfpipe:
Created by the World Ski and Snowboard Festival (WSSF), this playlist helps you “Feel like a boss while you try out new tricks as these slick indie and smooth hip hop classics are bumping in your helmet.”

WSSF Gala Event:
Also curated by WSSF (obviously), this is a high-energy mix of fresh new pop, rock and indie music by brand new artists and other recent favorites.

The Grunge Era:
I’m old. So this appeals to me. If you’re over 30, or a fan of 90s era rock, tracks from Nirvana, Alice in Chains or Stone Temple Pilots will fire you up.

Cooking with Jesse Pinkman:
You don’t have to love the show to get into this playlist. It’s billed as Jesse’s favorite rap, ska, and dubstep. I played it and the second track was Unga Bunga Bunga by Public Enemy. Sold!

Impact Soundtracks
Needs some aggressive metal or hip hop? This mix gives you stuff like Eminem, Disturbed, Killer Mike, Saliva or Pillar. The first song is Bodies by Drowning Pool. Ominous, but definitely gets you amped.

These are simply my picks. Got any better suggestions? We’d love to hear them.
