Great Days 16: At Home with Sage Cattabriga-Alosa

Editor's Note: In this Smith Optics Great Days edit, hosted exclusively here on, TGR veteran Sage Cattabriga-Alosa goes back to the chairlift that he's called home since 2001: Alta's Wildcat double chair. Underneath the fixed-grip double lies a veritable playground of natural kickers, transitions, jibs, and cliffs, and 12 years later, it's just as fun for Sage to shred as it was on day one, when he was hitting gaps in between washing dishes at the Peruvian Lodge.

Since 2001, Sage has called the slopes of Alta home and it is the jumps, gullies, and consistent powder found off the Wildcat Chairlift that makes this area so special to him. Despite traveling and skiing all over the world, Sage always returns to his magic place, where he is able to revel in the comradery that takes place under the Wildcat.
