Web Exclusive: Snowboarders take to the slopes in July

Web Exclusive

(CNN) - If you're looking for ways to cool off from the summer heat -- you may want to join a group of snowboarders in Colorado.

"It was weird leaving Reno, it was like 103 and I was like 'oh I'm going snowboarding' but it's awesome," says Niko Nakamura, a professional snowboarder.

Summer snowboarders are heating up the hills in Colorado.  A few hundreds yards of snow on Copper Mountain is enough to help kids at camp learn some of the tricks of winter in the middle of July.  They push all the snow into the middle of the run.  It's enough to withstand the heat. 

If snowboarding in the Summer doesn't make you want to workout, maybe John Forbes will.  He says he didn't really like exercise for about 80 years of his life.  But now he's 103 and a faithful exerciser at 30 minute sessions in Charlottesville, Virginia twice a week.  His trainer says she expects Forbes to put in a couple more decades of workouts. 

If you liked the movie "Magic Mike," you'll love this.  The movie is headed to Broadway.  Expect the stage show to be complete with singing and a lot of dancing. Magic Mike himself, Channing Tatum will be one of the producers.  No word yet on when the show will debut and we'll have to wait to see if any of the actors from the movie grace the stage.

There's something new from Google allowing people to stream internet videos onto their TV's. The company has introduced "Chromecast", a USB stick that pushes web video to your TV over a WiFi network. The small device cost $35-dollars and is available immediately and works using your computer, phone or tablet as a remote control.  Google says "Chromecast" is designed to create a device with zero set-up time and works with all devices and platforms.  The company says only 15-percent of households have figured out how to watch online video on their TV's and "Chromecast" is an attempt to increase that.  A purchase of "Chromecast" includes three months of free Netflix streaming.
