MTN. TOWN, USA — A woman's attempt to teach her boyfriend to ski "totally failed" Thursday when the couple started yelling at each other halfway up a local bootpack.
Cold feet, a slow pace and boyfriend Brett Schroder’s strict adherence to a frequent marijuana-use policy left the couple bickering and on the cusp of a total meltdown.
“He’s such an asshole,” ski bum Becky Sanders, 24, told TGR of her now ex-boyfriend. "I thought I could change him— make him into the perfect ski-town boyfriend — but people have to want to change. And what’s with taking a ‘safety break’ every 200 feet?”
The relationship started after Schroder, 26, quit his lucrative finance job in Manhattan to move to Jackson Hole to learn to ski and "live the dirtbag lifestyle." But according to friends of the transplant, Schroder quit skiing after a single half-day of drunkenly eating shit on green terrain.
I can't find a boyfriend that can keep up, so I don't date skiers anymore.
After convincing him to try again — but realizing the depth of the problem — Sanders quickly lost physical and mental attraction, until her frustrations boiled over, exploding into a very public display of dissatisfaction on the Glory Bootpack.
Following twenty minutes of fighting and being passed by uncomfortable skiers and snowboarders, Sanders allegedly told her now-ex-boyfriend to "fuck himself" before clipping in and skiing off alone.
In a written message to TGR, Sanders says she's still single — and for the 2018 ski season — plans to keep it that way. "I can't find a boyfriend that can keep up, so I don't date skiers anymore and just have alone time with my crew!"

They are one of the purest demonstrations of Mother Nature’s immense, uncontrollable power—and unfortunately, more and more often, they are claiming the lives of people that we love. For the average person, news of a deadly avalanche might congest your newsfeed, but passes on in a few days. For the loved ones of the victims, however, this is never the case, the memory of the life lost will always remain. RELATED: 8 Things I
Four years ago, Peter Wells came to his brother with an idea: “Let’s start a ski company.” They wrote a business plan, got the money together and put the pedal to the metal. “It takes time to build a brand and get our store out there, and for people to accept a new brand,” Tim Wells told TGR. “But we’re doing it.” The ski industry is changing, and Sego Ski Co. is ready to take advantage of it. Sego is poised for wild growth in a changing industry: In just four seasons they’ve gone from
You probably already know about Hadley Hammer: TGR skier and mountain athlete extraordinaire, but there's a whole lot more behind those cliff drops and pow slashes. Grit, determination, and an unrelenting desire for adventure of all forms. TGR caught up with Hammer in between some trips to a powder-filled Canada to talk about what goes on behind the lens. Hadley is much more than a ripping skier; she puts in hard work beyond the screen to make all her segments happen, as well as hosting a
