Longtime product partners TGR and BUFF® are teaming up this season to give back to our ski town heroes. This One-for-One campaign will benefit the essential workers of Jackson, Grand Targhee, Breckenridge and Bozeman for their steadfast service to their respective communities. TGR has always trusted BUFF® to keep our athletes and production crew protected in the elements with their world-class products. And we want to pass performance on to our ski town heroes.
For every official BUFF® x TGR Multifunctional Headwear sold, we will also donate one to a local essential worker in your town! Who qualifies as a mountain town hero? Who do we deem “essential”? We all know them, but they’d be the last ones to call themselves heroes. They’re up at dawn and out past dusk—doing the hard work—so you don’t have to.
They keep the lifts running, the restaurants serving, the retail selling, the road plows plowing. And of course, they’re the brave medical personnel that put their lives on the line. By sacrificing so much, they keep us safe and comfortable, day after day.
So it’s with a ton of respect that the TGR and BUFF® teams introduce this One-for-One campaign to show a small token of our appreciation to these selfless essential folks that drive the stoke in our mountain communities.
Wanna help pay it forward and show some love to your town’s essential workers? Shop the official BUFF® x TGR Powder Day Multifunctional Headwear and we’ll make sure an identical piece of gear is donated to a mountain town hero.

For the better part of 2021, ski patrollers at several large ski resorts in the Western US have made headlines as they negotiate their contracts to reflect the dedication they put into their jobs. For those of us that ski at a resort regularly, or even have at all in our lifetimes, we know that ski patrol is an essential part of not just staying safe, but also having a good time on the mountain. This season especially, it’s felt like ski patrollers could use a little extra love as they’ve
Black Diamond Equipment has initiated talks with US Consumer Protection Agency to issue a voluntary recall on all Pieps DSP avalanche beacons, in a formal response to a design issue that can accidentally lead to the beacon switching out of transmit mode.

On the commonly used Pieps DSP Ice, DSP Sport and DSP Pro, the switch that changes the beacon from off to transmit to receive can easily get damaged
