Eric and John Jackson, the blood-relative team behind the Red Bull TV series "Brothers on the Run," are attempting to travel the approximate 15,000 miles from Alaska to Chile on a quest to snowboard mountains on both North and South continents. The show features highlights from their trip, including their shenanigans in Alaska.

In the latest episode the brothers and friends Travis Rice and Ian Walsh visit Alyeska Resort's Slush Cup and secret surf spots outside of Homer, Alaska.

Around 4:20 in the clip Jackson can be heard saying, "There's nowhere else I'd rather be right now. This is insane. I couldn't believe it, I kept saying it over and over out there in the water. I can't believe where we are. You're looking at just the most insane mountains surrounding you and you're just in this ocean valley with perfect peelers coming in."

The Brothers had a lot of good things to say a about our fair state. Good waves, great winter-time sports-themed entertainment and most crucial of all undying graditude for our winter that keeps giving.
